To celebrate being named the Fox-8 News “Cool School” of the Week, Sunview Elementary School hosted a Jump Rope for Heart Kickoff Event as part of the annual fundraiser for the American Heart Association. Fox-8 News was present to capture all the excitement and showcase why Sunview is such a “Cool School.” The day started with an assembly led by Valerie Weber from the American Heart Association, who shared how students can give back to those in need while living a healthy lifestyle all at the same time. During the assembly, the students were surprised by the one and only Ronald McDonald, who livened up the crowd to show their school pride. The event was a great way for Sunview students to have some fun after a long week of testing and be rewarded for all their hard work and dedication to learning.
After the assembly, Fox-8 News along with Ronald McDonald and Principal Arika Taylor, visited a few classrooms to talk one-on-one with students and teachers about what makes Sunview such a great place. Mrs. Groudle’s third grade class showed off their Chromebooks being used for Reading and Math activities, while the music room was bursting with students singing and playing xylophones and other similar instruments. The camera crew also visited the STEM Lab where Mr. Turek’s students used hands-on activities to learn about force, motion and gravity.
All in all, Sunview Elementary shined bright and demonstrated what makes the building so special.
