Principal's Message

Sunny Heights Families,

The 2018-2019 ILEARN test is here! 3rd and 4th graders at Sunny Heights will begin testing the morning of Tuesday, April 23rd. Students will be testing each day in the morning for approximately 1 hour. The ILEARN test does not define your child, but you do want students to be set up for success and to do their very best on the test! Please help reiterate this message at home with your child. In order to minimize distractions to the testing environment, please avoid if at all possible making appointments, arriving late, departing early, or missing school during the next few weeks.

We are excited to see how much our students have grown this year!

Thank you for ALL that you do!

Your proud principal,

Barton Lewis

Dear Warren Township Families,

Raising children in the age of smartphones and social media brings new challenges and concerns for all families. That is why we are inviting you to join the Warren Township Council of PTAs at 6 pm in the MSD Warren Township Administration Building located at 975 N.

During this event your family will learn together about the importance of digital safety and online behavior through various workshops (Healthy Habits, Online Presence, Password Strategies, Privacy and You, Building Empathy, Family Tech Talk, and Ask a Student Center). Some of the things you can expect to talk about are password security, online communication, and how to be a connected as a family online. 98% of kids 8 years and younger have access to a smart device. It's important that our families know how to keep each other safe and be the best versions of ourselves online. We hope to see you on April 22nd to get the conversation started! Pizza and drinks will be provided at the event. Raffle Prizes will also be awarded! Please RSVP using the form below or through our Facebook page "Warren Township Council of PTAs".
