A Note from the Principal

Hello from Sunrise Elementary School!

Recently, our students completed Galileo #3 assessments, and I'm pleased to say the overall results are impressive. There has been much progress made since we gave the first assessments back in August, and that progress truly reflects the dedicated effort of our school community.

At all grade levels (K-5), our teachers are very aware of what students need to know and be able to do. There is a strong feeling of shared ownership as grade-level team’s work to ensure a year's growth for every student. Every grade level operates from a focused, collaborative effort to fine tune instruction to meet the needs of all students. Throughout the school day, classroom teachers have integrated time to re-teach and extend student learning. This strategy helps to maximize a child's learning experience so no one is left behind or kept behind. Our teachers' and students’ excitement and enthusiasm for achievement and learning is contagious, especially at this time of the year!

I hope you have an enjoyable month of March, and I look forward to seeing you at spring conferences.
