Principal's Message

Dear Parents:

Let me welcome you to Sunset Elementary School.  It is my intent that you and your child have a rewarding experience while your child is a student here.

As a parent, you have a very strong voice. School committees open for parental participation include Site Council and PTO.  District committees open for parental participation include Planning and Steering and Facilities Councils.  These are great opportunities for you to be involved in your child’s education.

Students are encouraged to get involved as well through activities such as Student Council, girls and boys basketball, cross country and Sunset Club.  Activities such as these allow your child to make new friends of all ages and teach him or her the responsibilities involved in working as a team.

In order for school to be a place for children to grow and learn, a place to respect and be respected, a place to experience the excitement of learning, it is important that the students, parents and school staff form a tri-partnership.  Working together, there is no limit to what our children and we can actualize.

Betty Paterson, Principal
