Sunrise Winter Spirit Week

Circumstances nowadays are quite draining for us all.

Our PFO would like to help bring some positive energy to our kids and us.

Next week will be a Spirit Week for no other reason than to spread some joy.

So help us spread the word and join us in having some fun with the following dress up days.

2022 – 23 School Year Registration

Beginning at 7:30am on Wednesday, January 12th, 2022 registration packets for the ’22-’23 school year will be available in the Sunrise Front Office. (Return to the office no later than 3pm on Thursday, February 24th, 2022.)

* If you have a student registering for TK for the ’22-’23 school year, registration is on a first come, first served basis as space is available. (Please return completed packet as soon as possible.)

** If Sunrise is your homeschool and your student is currently in TK-5th grades, no new registration is needed if you intend to stay at Sunrise next year. (TK students will need to complete a track preference form.)

*** If Sunrise is your homeschool and your student is currently in 6th grade, no new registration is needed and your information will be shared with Katherine Albiani Middle School. (Any questions should be directed to Albiani.)

**** If Sunrise is NOT your homeschool and you would like to stay at Sunrise next year, you will need to reach out to your homeschool to start transfer paperwork. (Please start paperwork as soon as possible.)

We encourage you to share this information with neighbors, as they may not be in our email system yet.

Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day – Nov. 17

Elk Grove Unified proudly recognizes Wednesday, November 17 as “Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day.” Ruby Bridges is an American activist who walked to school nearly every day and became a symbol of the civil rights movement at age six when she was the youngest of a group of African American students designated to integrate schools in the American South. Ruby Bridges stood for equality and desegregation in the early 1960s, and the Ruby Bridges Foundation promotes “the values of tolerance, respect, and appreciation of all differences.”

EGUSD believes in engaging student voices in partnering for an education environment that emphasizes inclusion, diversity, validation and equity. In honor of Ruby Bridges Day, we encourage you to tag @ElkGroveUnified in your photos/videos along with #RubyBridges to show us how your school celebrates the values Ruby Bridges stands for.

They collaborate with educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school, and the community for all students.

Sikh American Awareness and Appreciation Month

Elk Grove Unified School District proudly recognizes Sikh American Awareness and Appreciation Month (Nov. 1 – 30). Sikh Americans have resided in California for more than a century, with the first Sikh immigrants having labored on railroad construction projects, in lumber mills, and in the agricultural heartlands of the Sacramento, San Joaquin and Imperial valleys. Our EGUSD family acknowledges and celebrates the Sikh and Punjabi American communities who continue to make important contributions to our state and nation.
