Celebrating Reading!

It's Time to Think About Summer Reading!
Which Summer Reading program will you be a part of this year?

The Sumter County Library has a great lineup of summer reading events planned with the theme EVERY HERO HAS A STORY!  You could also participate in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge and log your reading time online.  Our local bookstore, Books A Million, also has a summer reading program featuring Theodore Boone.  And fans of Jeff Kinney's Wimpy Kid can participate in the Pizza Hut Book-It program!

And remember, anyone who brings me (Mrs. June) a certificate of completion or an official reading log from any summer reading program will be invited to our annual Summer Reading Ice Cream Sundae Party in August!  Happy Reading!

Congratulations to Amber Frye, our 2015-2016 Teacher of the Year!

We are thrilled to announce that Mrs. Amber Frye will serve as our Teacher of the Year next year!  Here she is pictured standing behind her Kindergarten class, wearing her crown and sash!


Congratulations to Lisa Jackson, Our 2014-15Teacher of the Year!

Do you recall taking a Career Interest Inventory in high school, answering a variety of questions about your likes, dislikes and temperament?  The survey then matched your answers to some  good career options.  I remember my results were: farmer, teacher and shepherd.  It's funny how those three are kind of related!  Yet that test simply confirmed what I already knew from a very young age:  I wanted to become a teacher.
