School Site Council

Hello Spartan families,

 

Our Sunrise Elementary School Site Council is our governing board which helps to develop and align our budget and goals in what is called the Local Control Accountability Plan or LCAP. The Council is comprised of five parents, three certificated teachers, a classified employee and the principal. Parent members serve a two year term on the Council. Parents continuing on with us this year to serve the second year of their term are Michael Pedley and Anissa Sonnenburg.

 

Three parent members have termed out, but are willing to continue on for a second two year commitment. Blair Douglas, Kim Martin and Christine Tang are open to serving again. To be inclusive to any parent that would like to join the Council we must solicit nominations of other interested parents. Candidates cannot be employees of the EGUSD. If no one expresses an interest then these incumbents will continue on for another two year term. If a parent is interested, please let me know by Friday, September 6. Please express your interest by emailing me at mhockiii@egusd.net.

 

So, what is the commitment? Our Council bylaws indicate we will host quarterly Council meetings, so at minimum we will host four meetings annually. Certain times of the year may require more input and so we may schedule more meetings as needed. Meetings run between one and two hours. Parent input is important to running our school effectively and input insures that we are responsive to the needs of our community. I make every effort to be transparent with school-wide academic data, program effectiveness, budget allocations, as well overall school culture and climate indicators.

 

Our school is indebted to our parents who have stepped up to serve our students, staff and community. If you would like to join us, please let me know. If you have any questions or need clarification, my office door is open to you, or you can email or call.

 

Thank you,

Another Music Opportunity

Hello Spartan families,

We have another wonderful music opportunity for our students coming our way. The Mandarins Music Academy will be hosting band and choir classes at Sunrise Elementary. Band will be open to 4th-6th grade students (possibly 3rd grade students who are experienced), and choir is open to all K-6 students. Director Jim Tabuchi of The Mandarins will be available for parents of students on ALL tracks the evening of August 22 from 5:30-7:00 outside the multipurpose room. The Mandarins staff can answer questions, take registrations, and they plan to host an instrument “petting zoo” where kids can try different instruments. Families can also register at www.mandarins.org.

So we now have two opportunities to connect our growing musicians- The Sacramento Performing Arts Conservatory (contact Clara Litman or Oxalis Nguyen at www.sacramentoconservatory.com) for piano/keyboards and violin instruction, and The Sacramento Mandarins Music Academy for woodwind instruments/band and choir lessons. We encourage all interested families to register soon as our music and choir programs are dependent upon enrollment.

Thank you and happy music making!

Music at Sunrise

 

Hello Sunrise Families,

 

A part of our vision is to provide opportunities to develop the whole child. Our extended day music opportunities are taking a new turn this year and we have some new community partners. This year the Sacramento Performing Arts Conservatory will be offering violin, piano, drums, and recorder lessons. If your child is interested in learning to play an instrument or is ready to take the next step in their development, please plan to attend our information orientation and registration family event on Thursday, August 1 from 6:00-7:00 in our multipurpose room. Please also see the flyer to RSVP or pre-register. Forms can be provided to our office in advance or brought with you the night of the event.

Thank you, as always, for your partnership.

Attendance / Tardies

Hello Spartan families,

 

Every day, on time attendance is critical to student success and it sets the tone for a great school day. Our staff wants to take the time to clarify what on time means so that we can mitigate any misunderstandings and conflicts with attendance.

  • On time means students are with their teacher and in their seats at 8:15 ready for the morning announcements.
  • Our entry gates will close and lock at 8:15 when our final bells ring, but students will be reminded to go to the office to receive a late slip.
  • We follow this process so that we have the ability to adjust teacher attendance recording with the most accurate information. For example a slightly late student may be marked absent by the teacher at 8:15. If the student doesn’t check in through the office to receive a late slip, the absence stays in the attendance system and the District will give the parent an automated call indicating the student was marked absent. Parents are then concerned and confused knowing their child was dropped off for school. If the child picks up the late slip, our office can then change the absence to a late and the parent will not receive the phone call.
  • To make things easy, please drop your child off between 8:00 and 8:10. This will ensure that children have enough time to line up on the blacktop, ready for their teacher and ready for school.

 

Thank you for helping us instill timeliness, start learning on time and clean up confusion with our attendance system!
