Thank You For Looking at Our Website!
We just want you to know that we love being a part of the Sumpter Community! We are so lucky to have a team of educators who set high expectations for themselves, as well as their students. It is also a pure joy to have such a supportive community who rolls up their sleeves and helps us teachers with the rigorous standards and high expectations we have for our children today. Here at Sumpter we support our district mission statement which states, "we will ensure that each of our students will have the essential knowledge, skills and attitudes to be a lifelong learner, a contributing citizen and a productive worker in a changing and increasingly diverse world." Here's to a great year!
We run active, vigorous and challenging classes. It is very important that each student wears good supportive tennis shoes. They need to lace or Velcro along with having good traction. Skateboarding shoes are ok it they lace and tightly tie them. Flip-flops, sandals, Uggs, etc. are not safe and do not offer the support that is needed. Consequently, if the shoes worn are not safe, we have an exercise corner where the student can do fitness exercises safely, but may not participate in other health club activities.
Be Active Each Day!
Along with all the physical benefits of being active, students who move daily also do better in school!
Research has shown increases up to 40% higher on test scores, increased concentration and attention, and improved attendance and discipline.
