A Message from the Principal

October 11, 2017

Dear Sunrise Families,

We thank each family member for participating in conferences over the last week.  We value the partnerships we have with each of you as we support our students in their learning. As the grading period ends on November 3, teachers will prepare report cards for electronic distribution on November 17.  Report cards are another way for us to share information with you. To access your report card, please log into your ParentVUE account. If you need assistants with your ParentVUE account, please contact Brenda or Dawn in the Office at 209-7901. Please know that our teachers are committed to being your partners as we support your student’s learning.

We will begin offering clubs for students to participate in during the recess time following lunch. We will make announcements each morning about the club event for the day:

  • Monday: Lego Club in the Library
  • Tuesday: Student Council in the Library
  • Wednesday: Garden Club beginning November 1st in the Garden
  • Thursday: Yearbook Club for fourth and fifth graders in CARE
  • Thursday: Spelling Club in the Library
  • Friday: Steppers beginning November 3rd on the field
Participation in clubs is voluntary. Students may attend at anytime. For example, a student might participate every week in a club, once a month, or every couple of months. 

A special thank you is extended to all of the volunteers who participated in the Garden and Campus Clean-Up. Students will begin planting the cool weather crops in the upcoming weeks. We all noticed the clean corridors and the fresh blue line running throughout the campus. Thank you to the volunteers and FFO Chairs, Emily Franklin, Shirley Harvey, Mike Schwartz and Amber Schwartz, for improving our campus.

On Friday, October 27th the FFO will host the annual Spiders and Cider event from 5:00-8:00. Donations of candy may be sent to the office for the FFO Spiders and Cider Committee to collect and organize for the evening for fun. Please click on the link to purchase tickets, volunteer and learn more about the event.

Students may choose to wear a costume to Spiders and Cider. When selecting a costume for your child to wear to the Spiders and Cider festivities, please be sure that it is appropriate for an elementary school.  Safety is the highest priority. Children are not permitted to wear masks, bring dangerous items or bring items that represent weapons.  Please refrain from body paint or images on costumes that depict violence or injury. We appreciate your support in creating a safe and fun event for all of our five through ten year olds!

I wish each of you a wonderful Fall Break.  Students have shared their plans for the long weekend.  Many are excited to visit with family and friends. I know some of you will enjoy relaxing in Tucson, while others will be fishing at a lake or walking on the beach. I look forward to seeing the students next week as they share their events of their long weekend!
