Dear Sunrise Drive Families,
This school year report cards will be distributed electronically through the ParentVUE system. If you have not activated your ParentVUE account yet, please visit the front office where you will be given an activation key and instructions on how to set this up. If you have already activated your account but have forgotten your username or password, please contact the front office and they will assist you with this.
On November 13, 2015, you will have access to your student’s report card by logging into your ParentVUE account and clicking the Report Card section of your child's account. You can click the link to download a PDF version of your child's report card and print it for your records if you choose. There are tutorials on Sunrise Drive's Youtube channel for your convenience to help you better understand your ParentVUE account. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Also on Friday November 13th, our fourth and fifth grade students will bring home AzMERIT results from the Spring 2015 testing sessions. Students will have scores for both Math and English Language Arts (ELA). One of four performance levels will be noted on the students report for Math and English Language Arts, which include Highly Proficient, Proficient, Partially Proficient and Minimally Proficient. The English Language Arts score is composed of three performance areas: Reading for Information, Reading for Literature and Writing Language. The Mathematics score is a combination of three performance areas: Operations, Algebraic Thinking, and Numbers in Base Ten, and Measurement, Data and Geometry. You may access information about AzMERIT on the Arizona Department of Education website at http://www.azed.gov/assessment/azmerit/. If you would like to discuss your student’s results, please contact your child’s teacher or me. We want to support your family as this new assessment and the results are distributed to you and the public.
Are your mornings rushed as you get ready for school? Breakfast is served on campus Monday through Friday beginning at 7:40. The breakfast served is part of the National School Lunch Program. Students may access breakfast in front of the MPR each morning. Sunrise Drive staff members supervise the eating area. Students may also choose to place some of the breakfast items in their backpack to eat as a snack. The cost of breakfast is $1.70 (30 cents for reduced meal or free for free meal based on qualifying criteria). Pam Yantorno from Sodexo will be on campus on Thursday morning from 7:40 to share information about the breakfast program at Sunrise Drive. If you have questions about breakfast or lunch, please contact me or Ms. Yantorno at firstname.lastname@example.org. I highly encourage you to consider your child taking advantage of a prepared breakfast (or snack) to ease your morning rush.
We look forward to a fun evening tonight at Spiders and Cider. I would like to thank all of the students, parents and volunteers who have collaborated to make this a wonderful evening for our students.
