Thank You!
From the
Sunrise Elementary PFO
 
We couldn’t do it without YOU, our amazing Sunrise parents and families.
 
With your support throughout the 2015-2016 school year, we raised about $40,000!
With these funds, we were able to:
 
Fund the Accelerated Reader Program
Purchase classroom Chrome Books and other technology
Support all grade levels by providing money for field trips
Provide classroom supplies and equipment
Offer activities like the Unity Carnival and Family Movie Night
Offer the Sunrise Elementary Yearbook
Fund assemblies and other on-campus student enrichment activities
Provide student awards, folders, planners, and achievement tags
 
As the school year comes to a close, the PFO Executive Board has decided that it will operate through a governing board starting in July 2016, when the 2016-17 school year begins. The PFO is looking for new members to join a dynamic group of PFO Executive Board members to plan and lead next year’s family events and fundraisers.  
 
If you are interested in being a part of the PFO Governing Board for the 2016-17 school year, please contact Mr. Hock at mhockiii@egusd.net.
 
Thank you again for your ongoing support and for making Sunrise Elementary an amazing place for our children to learn and grow.

Safety Reminder for Morning Arrival

Good morning Sunrise Spartans!  I hope your morning is off to a pleasant start.  This email pertains to a morning arrival safety announcement.
 
All students in grades K – 6 on Tracks A/B/C will begin their instructional day at  8:15 am beginning Wednesday, June 22, 2016 through Friday, June 24, 2016.
 
Parents/guardians, please refrain from parking in the drop-off zones or stopping in the drop-off zone to observe students entering classrooms.  There are options for our community to consider for morning arrival below:
*    You can park within one or 2 blocks walking distance to escort your students to class or the blacktop.
*    You can park in the main parking lot to escort your students to class.
 
When parents park and/or abandon their vehicles in the drop off zone for morning arrival,  student attendance rates and teachers’ ability to maximize all instructional minutes are negatively impacted.  Thank you in advance for helping us to maintain the quality of instruction by complying with our traffic safety protocols. 
 
Note: Help us to spread the word in the community.  Thanks.
