Mrs. Quesinberry has set our Accelerated Reader (AR) goals for 2014 - 2015 to 40,000 points by May 31, 2015. Because we've reached our AR half-way goal of 20,000 points, students will ALSO be allowed to wear a FAKE MUSTACHE at our CRAZY HAIR SPIRIT DAY on JANUARY 30, 2015. Students should provide their own mustaches. You can mark one directly on the face with easily removable facial make-up or tape one made out of paper, yarn, fur, felt, etc. Some party stores or dollar stores even have them in stock. Congratulations and keep reading! Let's get to our end-of-the-year goal as well! Remember, the library is open (unless posted) every morning at 8:15 and Wednesdays after school for you to check out books and take AR quizzes.

Way to go Sunset families! As the school year starts to wind down, I want to thank all the families that have helped earn Sunset some extra cash by turning in their Box Tops and Labels for Education. Mrs. Persaud’s First Grade class is in the lead with 2324 Box Tops and Labels for Education Points. Remember, the class that brings in the most Box Tops and Labels this year will earn a pizza party at the end of the year and the teacher will also earn much needed classroom supplies. Don’t forget to write your student’s name and teacher on the envelope or baggie and turn it into the orange box in their classroom. The current leaderboard has been posted on the PTO wall in the office. The last collection date is Friday, June 5th. For more information about the programs and which products are eligible, click here.

Time to order your Sunset Yearbook!!
The yearbook fliers have gone home! Please make checks payable to Sunset PTO. Yearbooks are $25.
This year, there is also an online option! The online option will close on May 8th, 2015, so if that's how you would like to purchase a yearbook, please do it now :)
There are extra fliers available in the office foyer.
Please note that, as in years past, this is the FIRST time we have offered yearbooks for sale. There was NO option to buy them in the beginning of the year. We know it can get confusing with students at other schools, which do offer early purchase.
Don't miss out on all the fun school year memories! Buy your yearbook today!
