  • supply packs
    Can you believe we are just weeks away from the school year coming to a close? While it is time to start planning those summer outings it is also that time of year where we offer school supply ordering. If you wish to order your pre-packaged school supplies for next school year, you can download and print this form and return with cash or check no later than Tue 5/19 OR you can order online by clicking this link [using code SUN121] thru June 12th.
    This year we have some OPTIONAL items listed. These items are requested by a grade but may be something that they already own or prefer to bring their own. The following items are optional for these grades:
    • 4th-Flash Drive and Earbuds
    • 6th-Earbuds
    • 8th-Scientific Calculator
    • 8th-Algebra 1-2H-Graphing Calculator
    This service is provided to you by your Sunset Ridge PTA. It is not a fundraiser. It is simply a service to help you worry about one less thing over summer break.

When making any school decisions we are always basing them on what is in the best interest of our students.

Having Fun!! 

But having a great school really is more than just school work - it is also having a sense of community. We are always looking for ways of bringing our school and community together whether it is putting together big community events or even some great annual traditions...fun is the name of the game!

Centennial Parade  
Sunset Ridge put together the largest Arizona Centennial Parade in all of Deer Valley and fun was had by all!
Bingo Night  
Sometimes going "old school" is the best - we have had so much fun at our Bingo Nights held throughout the year.
Field Day  
Without a doubt everybody looks forward to our annual Field Days!
