Welcome from Principal Taylor

2023-2024 School Year

Dear Sunview Families,

Happy 2024! On behalf of the entire staff, I would like to thank you our families for helping to see our students so prepared and eager to learn. Their work for the first part of the school year is wonderful to see. Students have made great strides in reading, writing, and math!  Our staff has engaged in meaningful professional dialogue multiple times a week focusing on instructional strategies to improve student achievement. This combination has proved to be a powerful educational dynamic, and we expect this to continue into the second half of the year. 

Students are reminded that our mid-year i-Ready Reading and Math Diagnostics are scheduled to commence January 22nd.  All of our students are encouraged to take their time and take this test seriously.  These assessments help us to see how much growth each student has made since the beginning of the school year.  Students will be rewarded for applying themselves and showing growth!

Parents should continue to be mindful of their students' attendance.  Full day attendance is essential to maximizing each student's learning opportunities.  Full day means students being in their homeroom seats by 8:35am and remaining in school until dismissal.  I would also like to remind parents about nightly reading with their students and practicing math facts.
Reading for comprehension and writing in response to the reading is critical.  The data shows that non-fiction comprehension is still an area for growth, so we will continue working on non-fiction selections and answering questions about the text.  In math, we will continue to promote productive struggle and student-to-student discourse.

Let’s do all we can to prepare for January 22nd and let’s finish the 2023-2024 school year with a continued desire for learning! Thank you for your continued support! 

Arika Taylor, Principal
