• Dear Sunrise Parents and Guardians,

    It is with great pride and excitement that I welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year.  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.

    All of us at Sunrise Elementary are eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever.  This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections.  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.

    I look forward to working closely with you to help each student at Sunrise Elementary meet their goals and have a successful school year!

    Best Regards,

    Mrs. Karen Dial

    Proud Principal of Sunrise Elementary
