A Note from the Principal

Hello from Sunrise Elementary School!

As we enter the final month of the school year, let me express my sincere appreciation for the hard work and effort our students and staff have made this year. I would also like us to take a moment to recognize and appreciate the Sunrise PTA, our school volunteers, and all those who have donated their time, money, and/or effort. Your dedication and commitment do not go unnoticed and help to make Sunrise a better place!

As you may know, I will not be returning as the principal for the upcoming school year. I have accepted the position as director of federal programs within the district. I want to say thank you to current and past staff members, parents, and students. All of you have made my nine years at Sunrise the very best of my career. I would also ask that you help welcome and support the new principal, Mrs. Suzette Whelchel. Mrs. Whelchel is eager to begin and recognizes that Sunrise is a great school community.

Sunrise continues to be a great place to learn and work, and we can all be proud of the many accomplishments that have happened both in and outside of the classroom this school year.

Have a safe and enjoyable summer!
