CARES at Sun Prairie East High School
Sun Prairie East High School strives to foster a positive school culture and safe, effective, engaging learning environment for all students by showing CARES.
Community: I am a reflection of the community
Accountability: I one my actions and make things right
Respect: I show kindness to myself and others
Empathy: I understand how others feel
Safety: We are all responsible; see something, say something
We will be grounding ourselves in CARES at the start and throughout the year in the classrooms, hallways and extracurricular events. Athletic and other curricular events are an extension of school and we will shine to the community by having high expectations in those spaces as well. We will be teaching and learning about CARES during SP30 to launch the year.

Staff Spotlight- Pang Khang- Dean of Students
Hello Sun Prairie East!
I hope this letter finds you well and that you found some time to enjoy your scholar’s time off from school.
My name is Pang Khang and I am the Dean of Students at Sun Prairie East High School. This is my second year as the dean here and my tenth year as an educator.
I live with my husband, three children, and mother-in-law in Sun Prairie. We enjoy walking to the nearby parks, biking on the trails, and swimming at our auntie’s pool.
Some things I can’t live without are:
Adobe Creative Cloud
Some things I CAN live without are:
I’m sure there is more that I can add to that list of things I CAN live without, but currently, yard work is at the top of my mind. I still have yet to find the joy of weeding, mulching, trimming, and cutting the grass.
Thank you for taking the time to read and learn more about me. I hope you’ll give me the opportunity to also learn more about you, your family, and your scholars. I look forward to working together to help all our students thrive here at Sun Prairie East.
All my best,
