Principal Weekly Message 2022-2023

Sunset Valley Elementary School

Mensaje semanal de parte de la directora

Welcome to the Sunset Valley Elementary principal weekly message.


"Connection is the energy that is created between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued-when they can give and receive without judgement." -Brene Brown


My goal this year is to ensure every stakeholder on our campus no matter who they are feel connected, loved, and supported by our Sunset Valley Elementary community. This Smore link will serve as that hub to get us started in that journey.


Below you will find a button for my weekly newsletter with important information. Please save this link in your favorites for easy access. It will continue to be updated every Thursday throughout the 2022-2023 school year.

Dual Language Transfer Requests

Any families interested in applying for a transfer to Sunset Valley Elementary to participate in our dual language program but missed the February 28th deadline can stop by the school office. The dual language transfer request link has been disabled in the parent portal but you can still complete the paper version of the dual language commitment letter which serves as the transfer request. Here are the DL Commitment forms: English and Spanish. Please drop off the form in the office as additional paperwork is required to be collected.



Please note that we have a waitlist for grade levels PK3 through 5th grades. As soon as we have 100% of our current students registered for 22-23 school year and know who will not be returning, we will be able to open up more transfer spots. We will try our best to let families with students on a waitlist know by no later than the second week in August if the transfer is approved or not. Please note that we only take dual language transfers. We are not open for general transfers. For additional questions, please contact marizza.marquez@austinisd.org or 512-414-5100 or claudia.shudic@austinisd.org or 512-414-1390
