AR Goals

This year's AR Challenge

Ms. Sekhon has given our school a challenge: can we reach 40,000 AR (Accelerated Reader) points before May 30?

We've already reached our half-way goal on January 6, 2014 and were able to wear a mustache to school to celebrate that accomplishment.  If we reach our end-of-the-year goal, we will have all classes learn a Zumba 'dance' and perform it in the final week of school.  Keep reading and take those AR tests!

Principal's Greeting

Greeting Sunset Families:

                  Congratulations to our students for reaching their Accelerated Reader goal of 40,000 points.  They were to reach this goal by May 30, 2014, and were promised to a school wide “dance part” during a school assembly.  Our students not only reached this goal but they surpassed it.  In fact, they were challenged again to reach 45,000 points by May 30th for extra 15 minutes of recess.  Once more our students reached this goal way before the deadline, demonstrating that they have a love for learning.  We want to ensure that we continue to nurture their desire to read and learn. 

                  Thank you to Sunset’s former student Tristan Knuth for building backpack carts for two of our classrooms.  This was his Eagle Scout Project, and the carts are definitely being utilized by the students in the classrooms. 

                  We want to thank all our volunteers for their support in making Sunset a great school.  We also appreciate members of the School Site Council for their time, input, and support.  We want to recognize all the out-going Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) board members for everything they did to support our school’s success.  We also welcome the new in-coming PTO board members, and look forward to working with them in making 2014-2015 another successful year. 

                  Please remember the last day of school is June 12th.  As summer break begins for our students, we recommend that they continue to work on all their skills in reading, writing, and math.  I would like to wish all our students, families, and staff members to have a fabulous summer, and I look forward to seeing everyone in August.

We are pleased to announce that as of January 6, 2014 at 2:16 p.m., our first through fifth grade students have surpassed our school wide AR goal of 20,000 points.  As promised, in honor of their achievement, we will have a mustache day on Friday, January 17.  This means that ALL students and staff will be allowed to wear a mustache to school that day.   We encourage you to make one (paper, yarn, tape, etc.) or with a parent's approval, draw one on your face.  We look forward to seeing the variety of mustache styles!  Congratulations students!  Our next goal is 40,000 points by May 30, 2014.  We know you can do it!  Keep reading and taking AR tests!
