    Jewel Sumner Middle will host a Meet & Greet/Open House on Monday, August 6th, with a general assembly in our gym/cafeteria at 3:30 PM. Our cheerleaders will perform to kick off the event and the principal will give the welcome and review the school poilicies.  You will learn about some of the various clubs and activities available to your child at Jewel Sumner Middle.  The teachers will be available for you and your child to meet.


    If you cannot make the start of the general assembly, you may join us late, but the event ends promptly at 5:30 PM.


     At this event, parents will have an opportunity to:  

    • Meet their child's teachers and familiarize themselves with our campus
    • Sign Up for Weekly & Special Announcements emailed to you  
    • Pay your child's supply fees ($20)
    • Pay the 4-H Club fee ($15) and PTSA fee ($5)  -  These are optional organizations
    • Drop off school supplies to avoid your child having to carry all these things on his/her first day of school. 

    Please join us at this event if you can, and show your child that their education is important to you!  We would LOVE to have a high attendance!
