From Mrs. LaBuwi

  • Dear Sunrise Families,

    I am honored and excited to join the Sunrise staff for the 22-23 school year. The past few months I have had the opportunity to work alongside Mrs. Dial to get to know the staff, students and families in the neighborhood. We have both new and returning staff to greet your children each day and help foster growth in a variety of ways.

    We will continue the Sunrise tradition of building strong relationships with our parents, students and community partners. The staff and I will use current data to drive instruction and get your children prepared for all that comes their way. We will focus on not only Character Readiness skills, but Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) targets to help with building positive self images, healthy friendships and personal growth. 

    As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps onto the Sunrise campus - teachers, students and parents - feels welcome and excited to be here!  This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic and personal excellence in a positive, encouraging, and nurturing environment.

    I look forward to getting to know you and your children. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, comments or are in need of information.You can reach me at or 602-467-5900.

    Wishing you a safe, healthy and joyful summer break. We look forward to seeing you on Aug 1, 2022 for Meet the Teacher Night.
