    Class Expectations:

    PAWS is our school-wide expectation system.

    P- Practicing Respect

    A- Accepting Responsibility

    W-Working Together

    S- Safety Matters


    Positive Behavior

    I encourage positive behavior daily by recognizing and rewarding appropriate behavior. I establish clear expectations and regularly pre-teach expectations during lessons to ensure that students understand how to be successful.

    Disruptive Behavior

    If a student is not following directions, he/she will receive a verbal warning. Generally, students are able to correct disruptive behavior quickly. However, if the disruptive behavior continues, a phone call home and/or a conference will be scheduled.

    We will also be using ZONES of Regulation this year. This curriculum is designed to foster self-regulation and emotional control.

    Here are some reminders for you on our school campus



    Although it is recommended that medication be given at home, we understand that it is not always possible to do so. In this case, parents must obtain a medication form from the school nurse and have it completed by your child’s physician. Also, medication must be in the original bottle from the pharmacy.

    Check-In Policy 

    For safety reasons, visitors must check-in at the office and present a photo ID (driver’s license is preferred). After presenting photo identification, the visitor will have their picture taken and a sticker printed out with their name and photo. This sticker must be worn while the visitor is on campus. Visitors need to return to the office before they leave to check out. 8:15 am- 2:45 pm is protected instructional time. Thank you for helping us make Sunrise a safe school for our students!




    When your child is absent, please call in to the office.
