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!

Greetings Sunset Families:
There were some remarkable celebrations at Sunset in March. Our very own Sam Siegel did a great job at Alameda County’s spelling bee, and we are very proud of him. We also want to thank our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), GALA chair and committee, parents, and our community for the annual GALA. We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated and committed community. Due to the generosity of our families we are able to keep much needed programs at our school. Thank you for making Sunset a great school.
In the month of April our students in 3rd-5th grades will begin taking the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium field test. The purpose of the test is to check the validity, reliability, and its fairness for all students. California public schools will be exempt from receiving Academic Performance Index (API) and Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) scores as a result. However, certain portions of the California Standardized Test will still take place including 5th grade Science and Physical Fitness, and California Alternate Performance Assessment (CAPA) .
As we are getting ready for testing, we will also begin on planning for the next school year including devising classes for next year. We will continue with our parent input form for class placements. This form is available on the school’s website, and a hard copy is available in the front office. If you would like to provide input for your child’s placement for next year please turn the form into the front office no later than by 4 pm on Friday, May 30, 2014. Please note that we work on creating balanced classes (number of boys and girls, students’ abilities, behavior, etc.). I assure you that all teachers at Sunset work diligently to ensure each student gets the best possible learning experience.
Please remember Spring Break is from March 31st-April 4th, and school resumes on Monday, April 7th. There is no school for students on Monday, April 21st.
The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.

SUNSET STUDENTS REACH MID-YEAR AR GOAL
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!
