Principal's Greeting

Dear Sunset Families:


I hope you are all excited for a new school year!  The staff here has been busy learning new curriculum and working to prepare their rooms for your children!

It was great to meet so many families at the PTO event on Thursday night at the school.  Our PTO worked tirelessly to organize this event and they are much appreciated!

I am thrilled to be the principal at Sunset.  I have been in education for 26 years now and I still get excited each school year.  Each school year brings the promise of learning new things, expanding one’s potential and developing the whole child.  I have been a teacher for 15 years and in school administration for 11 years.  This marks my twelfth year as a school administrator (and year 27!).  Most recently I have been a principal in Pleasanton.

My husband is also in education.  He teaches Math at the middle school level in the New Haven Unified School District.  We have two children who are in college and living away from home.  It was quite an adjustment last year to have no kids at home, especially after their huge involvement in sports.

Please remember that the first three days of school are on a minimum day schedule with dismissal for grades 1-5 at 1:30. Kindergarten teachers have an adjusted schedule as well so please consult your teacher for those times.  We will resume the regular schedule on Thursday, August 28th for grades 1-5.

We look forward to seeing you all this week!
