• Dear Sunrise Parents and Guardians,

    I am honored to lead a school with such a dedicated and enthusiastic staff.  Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to build strong relationships with parents, students and community partners.  We will focus on character education initiatives, Arizona College and Career Readiness skills, the use of data to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase all of our students' achievement.

    As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-teachers, students and parents-are excited to be here!  This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.

    I encourage you to reach out to me if you ever have questions, comments or feedback. I welcome any and all of those as we work to make Sunrise the best school on the planet. You can reach me at karen.dial@dvusd.org or 602-467-5900.

    Best Regards,

    Mrs. Karen Dial

    Proud Principal of Sunrise Elementary
