WANTED: MORE NECKTIES!

IF YOU PICK UP YOUR 1ST - 4TH GRADE STUDENT AT THE FRONT DOOR...

The inside foyer is reserved for parents picking up their Preschool and Kindergarten students.


If you wish to park and walk to pick up your older students, the benches on the front sidewalks are available for you to wait for your student. This allows us to clear out the pathway for the older students to make their way out of the school safely.

Little Blazer Cheer Clinic (repeat)

Each year the Gardner Edgerton High School Cheerleaders host a cheer camp for individuals in grades K-6. We are proud to say that GEHS cheerleaders have been hosting this camp and "Building Blazers" for over twenty years!


This program is divided into two parts: a clinic and a game.

On Wednesday, September 18th, we will host the clinic at GEHS from 5:30 pm-8:00 pm. Check In will be from 5:00 pm-5:30 pm in the Auxiliary Gym at GEHS. The cheerleaders will teach our Little Blazers chants, cheers and safe stunting.

On Friday, September 20th, the Little Blazers will attend the home football game versus Lawrence High School. They will be cheering on the track with the high school cheerleaders during the first quarter of the game. If the game on Friday, September 20th should be rained out, the make-up game will take place on Friday, October 4th.

The cost is $40 which includes a cheer t-shirt, bow and poms to be used/worn at the game. One adult will be admitted for free the night of the game.



Early registration deadline to enroll is Friday, September 6th. GEYCP is helping with enrollments and will only be taking online registrations.

Site Council

The Sunflower Site Council will be meeting at 6 pm in the library on the following dates: 9/17/19, 11/12/19, 2/11/20, 4/14/20.


All meetings are open to the public.


Kansas schools are required to establish site councils composed of the principal, teachers and other school personnel, parents, business representatives, and other community groups.


Site councils have a responsibility to provide advice and counsel in the following areas: evaluating district and school performance goals and objectives, determining methods to meet those goals and objectives, and other areas as requested by the board of education.


Remember, the work of the site council is advisory only; it makes recommendations, not decisions.

Sunflower PTO

Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) has been an integral part of Sunflower Elementary for many years. Through fundraisers and fun events, they are able to provide funds to teachers, classrooms, and the school.


We invite everyone to join the Sunflower PTO Facebook page. By searching "Gardner Sunflower PTO" under Pages, you will be able to join the group and receive updated PTO information.
