Students at Sumter County Primary School in Mrs. Cynthia Bittle and Ms. Laquinthia Williams' Pre-K class learned about Thanksgiving. They then enjoyed their very own dessert Friendsgiving. The students came dressed in their best outfits, made memories, and fun was had by everyone.
Ms. Shyericka Thornton and Mr. Cecil Williams' Pre-K class at Sumter County Primary School learned about turkeys. During small group time, Kaiden Harris made turkey food and said, “Look Ms. Thornton! I made turkey food. It’s not for the wild turkeys though.” What a fun week of learning it was for the students.
Children’s Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country and was held November 6 – 12. Students at Sumter County Primary School participated by dressing up each day to encourage and promote literacy throughout the school. On the last day of the week, classes participated in Curl Up and Read. The school paired this with their literacy kickoff, Book Blast, that took place earlier in the school year. All students received at least one new book to help build their home library. Some students received more depending on the amount of donations that was raised. The last day of Children’s Book Week, students had their “Book Opening Day”, and then read the book(s) during Curl Up and Read.
