School Improvement Countil
The purpose of the School Improvement Council (SIC) is to bring together parents, educators, students and community stakeholders to collaborate on improvement opportunities within our school. We need your ideas on how the SIC can work to improve Sunset Park. No idea is too big or too small! Talk about it with your students then visit the following link to provide feedback:
The next SIC meeting will be in January (no December meeting). We hope to see you there. We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Our students are actively participating in cooperative games promoting working together, fair play, and sportsmanship. Our K-2 student activities target the development of locomotor skills and games to improve their fitness levels. Students in grades 3-5 are participating in activities to enhance their cardio-vascular fitness level. Our 3-5 students are preparing for Fitnessgram testing which focuses on cardio-vascular fitness, muscular strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility. I encourage you to model being physically active and encourage a healthy lifestyle.
The American Heart Association recommends that healthy children, stay active throughout the day. It is strongly advised that children get at least an hour of moderate to vigorous activity every day. This will help them maintain a healthy weight and keep their hearts, brains and bodies healthy.
Here are some ideas suggested by the American Heart Association:
-Enjoy the great outdoors! Schedule a time each day for an outdoor activity with your children. Hike a local nature trail, go for a walk or jog, or ride a bicycle path.
-Schedule family playtime. Choose activities that require movement, such as bowling, catch or miniature golf.
-With the holidays coming up, choose toys wisely. Give children toys that encourage physical activity, such as balls, kites, skateboards and jump ropes.
-Limit screen time. Experts suggests one to two hours of screen time a day for children. Set boundaries, keep the television and electronic media out of your child's bedroom and limit computer usage to school projects.
Announcement! Fourth graders are headed back to the Rock Hill Aquatic Center for swimming lessons. We are scheduled for lessons February 13 - 16. This is a no cost swim lesson event with Red Cross certified swimming instructors. Please note that the only thing your child must provide is a swimsuit and a towel. More info to come in January.
