Senior Night Friday, October 20th!



On Saturday, October 7th Sumter High’s Junior Civitans International Club met

at Dillon Park to pick up trash to help clean up the park. By the end of our clean

up, about 12 bags of trash were picked up, and the wooded Cypress Trail was

cleaned off. We will revisit in November to again clean up our local park. For more

photos look under the Student Activity section of the website.

Juniors and Seniors have the option to rent a used Chromebook for $20.00 after October 16th, based on what is available.  (The three year purchase plan will not apply to Juniors & Seniors.)
