Principal's Message

As we begin a new year I would like to wish a very Happy New Year to our Sunkist Bear Family! I trust you had a wonderful winter break with family and friends. As we celebrate this new year, 2022, it is always a great time for looking back to the past, but more importantly, looking forward to the coming year. It is a time to reflect on the changes we want, or need, to make and resolve to follow through on those changes. So as we begin 2022, I want to assure everyone that the high expectations in academics and behavior set from the beginning of the year will continue, and our partnership in the education of our little ones continues to grow.

TK and Kindergarten Registration

TK and Kindergarten registration will begin much earlier this year. If you need to register a TK or Kindergarten student please come by the school office beginning January 18, 2022 to pick up a TK/Kindergarten Registration Packet.

Art Trek

Beginning in January students will participate in visual arts classes through Art Trek. Art Trek classes are taught by seasoned art educators who emphasize experience, exploration, and expression. Be ready to receive some beautiful pieces of art in the next few months.

Sunkist School PTA

Would you like to make a positive difference for Sunkist School? We are looking to form a whole new Parent Teacher Association (PTA) this year to address issues that are important to parents and public school educators. It helps foster our school-community partnerships. We hope you'll choose to join us in ensuring Sunkist School thrives!

If you are interested in holding an office in our PTA please contact Ms. Padilla at (805) 986-8722, or email her at
