Sumner County Schools District Parent Involvement Plan




 Our second semester is well underway.  Even though we have had several bad weather days, we are hard at work getting ready for our TCAP tests coming in the spring. We have several important days coming up that I'd like you to remember.  March 6, 2014, is our Parent Meeting for Read Across America Week.  The theme is Game Night and we would love to have everyone here from 4-6.  The next event is our annual Kick-off for TCAP.  ON April 7, 2014, we are "Getting Fit for TCAP". Watch for more information on both activities.

As always, your students are working hard and should be praised for their accomplishments.  Keep reading with them, as you are the best example they have.!


Terry Herndon,

Mr. H. and Mrs. B.Mr. Herndon and the faculty and staff of North Sumner would like to congratulate Mrs. Gladys Braswell on celebrating her 100th birthday. Mrs. Braswell has been an important part of North Sumner's history.  She was part of the staff here for many years and worked with many different principals and teachers.  Many in the Oak Grove community remember Mrs. Braswell as an influential part of their education at NSE. 

Mrs. Braswell is pictured here with Mr. Herndon, principal at North Sumner Elementary at her 100th birthday celebration given by her family and friends.

Thank you, Mrs. Braswell! 

 Parents, please take a look at the State Report Card.   We are so proud to be one of the top schools in the county.  Thank you for your help and support.  Mr. Herndon
