The start of a new calendar year has created an upbeat and exciting atmosphere at Sunview Elementary School, and with the upcoming semester in front of us, there is an eagerness in the building among students and staff. Sunview had an enthusiastic first semester, in that we launched our Sunview Citizenship Club campaign. Monthly, students are nominated by their teachers for demonstrating kindness, safety, and responsibility for their work and actions. For the first semester, there have been an average of 230 students nominated each month! Nominees take home a special recognition letter to share with their parents. A special raffle of the nominees allows names to be selected for a special treat with the Principal. Great stuff, to all involved!
In looking to the second semester, we kindly ask students to stay-the-course and give their best efforts. Content will increase, and expectations are higher. One of our SEL core beliefs states that "Students must take ownership of their education." We want Sunview Arcs to take the initiative for not just their assignments but consider how they can go above and beyond - reading, writing, and practicing math nightly.
Please mark your calendars for Sunview’s 2nd round of i-Ready which is approaching the week of Jan 23rd - 31st. This is an opportunity for students to show how much they've grown over the past three-and-a-half months! Students are also encouraged to dress appropriately for the winter weather; snow pants and boots are encouraged if students want to play in the snow during recess. Be safe and patient in the car line, follow the guidance of the car line supervisors. Continue to charge up chrome books nightly!
Thank you for the pleasure it is to be your principal. My door is open to you at any time!
Arika Taylor, Principal
