 Hello Sunrise Parents and Guardians! 

 
I hope you all had a safe and happy Labor Day. I must admit the three day weekend was a nice break. For those of you who didn't make it to Back-to-School Night, I just want to give you a run down on the night. 
 
Principal Swanicke gave a terrific back to school presentation. It was very detailed and clearly planned out. If you haven't already, please read the on-line Sunrise Parent/Guardian Handbook informing you of school rules and expectations. We are going to have a wonderfully productive school year. The PTA was able to clearly explain what becoming a member of PTA, by paying your dues, means. It only means that you are becoming a voice in a non-profit organization that helps children succeed in school so they can succeed in life. It does not mean that you are required to help with our PTA programs in any way. So, if you haven't yet paid your dues of just $6 for a single membership and $11 for a double membership then I would ask you to please reconsider. The more members the louder our voice on Capitol Hill and in our public schools. Our membership goal for this year is 360. We currently have a total membership of 250. So, once again, please donate. It's a good cause. Thanks for being AWESOME parents. It's not an easy job, but one of the most important. 
 
Remember our first PTA board meeting is this Wednesday September 3rd in the teachers' lounge at 9:30 am. Have a wonderful week!

Hello Sunrise Parents and Guardians!

 It is my pleasure to welcome you all back to school. We are going to have a great school year and definitely a great PTA year. I have already received so many PTA volunteer interest sheets back, requesting to help out with our programs. THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! Our PTA programs would not be as successful as they are without your help.
 
The PTA membership envelopes have also been trickling in. Once again, thank you so much for your support. I would, however, like to apologize for the confusion on the amount of membership dues. Usually we have them printed on the envelopes. You all should have received a phone call from Principal Swanicke informing you of the amounts, $6 for a single membership and $11 for a couple. If you have already sent in $6 for your membership, but would like to add your spouse or another adult just send in $5 with a note saying that you already paid $6 for a single membership and the name of the extra person. Thanks so much for your support! I hope you all have a great week and I'll see you all at back to school night this Thursday, Sept. 28th, at 6:30. GO EAGLES!!!

P.S Spirit Wear order forms and information on Sunrise Singers will be sent home next week.  Students have also been asking about Reflections!  We will sent that information home soon.
 
BACK-TO-SCHOOL NIGHT
Our SALTA Back-to-School Night begins at 5:00 pm.  Principal and PTA meeting begins at 6:30 pm.  For a complete schedule, visit our website at: sunrise.canyonsdistrict.org.
 
BEFORE SCHOOL EXPECTATIONS:
Supervision begins at 8:00 am.  Kindergarten students are expected to line up when dropped off.  They are not to play on the Kindergarten playground as there is not continual supervision.  First through third grade students also line up.  They are not allowed to play on the swings and/or field as there is not continual supervision.  Our students' safety is a priority at Sunrise.  Fourth and fifth grade students, at this time, are allowed to play on the back playground.  They are older and able to line up the moment the bell rings.  If problems begin to occur, this privilege will be taken away.
 
AFTER SCHOOL EXPECTATIONS:
Students are expected to walk directly home or to meet their ride.  No students should be playing on the playground.  Supervision ends at 3:05 pm.  Students who are not picked up by 3:05 come in the building and sit in the front hall.  Parents must park their cars and come into the school to pick up their students.  It is important to us that our students are safe and not outside unsupervised.
 
REFLEX MATH:
This week, Sunrise teachers will send home Reflex math access letters.  Reflex math is also now available as an app.
 
BREAKFAST:
Breakfast is available at 7:45 am.  Students enter the lunchroom through the west doors.
 
SMITHS:
