Attention Parents and Freshmen:

Benchmark testing will begin next week (Dec. 6th) and all 9th graders will need to bring their Chromebooks to use for testing.  Please make sure your Chromebook is charged and ready to use.  If you have any issues with your Chromebook please see Mrs. Speed in the library before the 6th.  Benchmarks are a state mandated test.


Sumter High’s Fine Arts department created ornaments and decorated a tree for the Palmetto Tuomey’s Festival of Trees.  It will be on display at Tuomey Hospital through the holidays.
