Communications and Engagement: Communications from the Sumner School and district can come via different platforms. Below are two of the most used platforms used by our school community. You can always reach out to your homeroom teacher for more information.
Class Dojo: a web-based and mobile device app that many teachers at the school use to communicate with families including pictures of classroom activities and other updates. There is also a "School Story" in which staff and family council can broadcast announcements to the whole school. Please follow this link for step-by-step instructions on how to get started on Class Dojo.
School Messenger: The Sumner School and Boston Public Schools District uses the SchoolMessenger app to broadcast messages through phone, email, and text messaging. Families can use the "Infocenter" to manage your communication preferences and read previous messages. For more information and to get started with the School Messenger app, please visit this page.
Room Champions: The Sumner school is building a room champion program where parents/guardians can assist homeroom teachers with classroom communications related to class activities and events (non-confidential information only). Room champions can also help amplify messages and events from the school family liaisons, specialists, Sumner School Family Council, and School Site Council. Room champions for each class will have unique opportunities to engage in activities supporting your child’s class, organize meetups for families outside of school and assist with volunteer efforts. Please contact Jess Manna (email@example.com) to express your interest or for more information!
