Sumner Academy is dedicated to the belief that education is a collaborative effort
among the school, the students and their families. The most successful students are ones who are challenged by their schools and encouraged and supported by their families.  We welcome parent volunteers in the classroom and throughout the campus.

Volunteering provides the perfect opportunity to show children that their parents support them. At the same time, volunteering parents get a glimpse into their children's daily activities. Volunteering is the best way for parents to know their children's teachers, friends, and the other parents throughout the school.

All school volunteers are required to complete a Volunteer Application and must check in at the school office. Volunteers who may have unsupervised contact with students may also be asked to complete a Sumner Academy background check. Background checks must be scheduled through the Sumner Academy Office Manager.
