Pre-K students at Sumter County Primary School celebrated GA Pre-K Week October 4th-8th. Georgia Pre-K Week is about celebrating and raising the awareness of the importance of quality early childhood education. One of their goals is being able to provide a free program to all of Georgia’s four-year-olds to promote future success and excellence. During the week, our students had special dress up days and had local leaders read virtually. Bright from the Start also provided enough books for every GA Pre-K student to have a book of their very own.
On October 6, 2021 at 10:00 a.m., Sumter County Primary School students, faculty, and staff participated in the annual Statewide Fire Drill. The fire drill allowed each person to practice emergency exit procedures to ensure prompt, safe evacuations of the facility in the event of an emergency.
Sumter County Primary School Pre-K had a special visitor. Mrs. Mitzi Parker from the Sumter County UGA Extension Office talked with the students on how to properly wash hands. She read a book, showed students what germs look like, and demonstrated how to wash the germs away.
First grade students at Sumter County Primary School in Mrs. Mandi Saratsiotis’ first grade class enjoyed a fun game of Alphabet Bingo as one of the ELA and Reading activities on the recent Early Release Day. Following dismissal of students, parent-teacher conferences were held virtually to continue to build relationships between the home and school.
