Howling Coyote

Weekly Communication for the week of August 12, 2019

Principal's Message

We are so excited for the first day of school in the #bestyearever!

While most of us are able to provide more than enough for our student's, about 10% of our families struggle to make ends meet. It is our goal to ensure each student at Sunset Ranch has what they need to learn, including belonging, acceptance, materials, and supplies to name a few.

I am thrilled to announce that we have been the recipients of several backpacks with supplies from Bayside Adventure, a community partner. If your family is in need of assistance, feel free to stop by the office during business hours and ask for assistance picking out a new backpack. Thank you, Bayside Adventure, for your generosity and support!

Please be sure to look at the weekly updates below for things you won't want to miss.

Go Coyotes!
