Welcome to Sunrise!
I would like to take this opportunity to personally welcome your family to our school. We are excited that you will be joining our community for the 2017-2018 school year. Sunrise is an excellent school with a long history of commitment to providing students with an outstanding educational experience.
Sunrise is a place where we meet the needs of each child. Our teachers consistently provide instruction for students based on their academic performance level. Teachers determine students’ reading and math levels, and then plan appropriate instruction for their class. Our teachers work together to differentiate learning for all students. We have special classes: PE, Music, Computer, and Library to enrich our elementary curriculum.
We have high expectations for our students, both academically and socially. We expect students to be safe, respectful and responsible. At the beginning of every year, we review these expectations with students for all areas of our school. In addition, we reward students consistently when they meet these expectations. We have a Renaissance program which recognizes individuals for their academic and social accomplishments. Students also earn “golden tickets” throughout the year by demonstrating behavior that is safe, respectful and responsible. Once our school year gets underway, you will have the opportunity to learn more about these special programs and the positive learning environment that is a hallmark of Sunrise Elementary.
Again, on behalf of the staff, we welcome you to our school. Sunrise is a special place, and we are certain that you will find a safe and professional learning atmosphere for your children.
Mrs. Amy Roden, Principal
