Lewis Ledger - Week 13

November 4, 2018

Sunny Heights is where everyone is valued and respected. Our vision is to inspire a passion for learning in a student-centered, family friendly environment.

Week 12 - Daily Focus

There was a lot going on last week and Sunny Heights pulled together and made the most of it. I personally am looking forward to a more stable, consistent week schedule-wise so I can get into classrooms and see the amazing things you are doing with our students every day. There are only 31 student days left in the first semester....let's make every one of those 31 days a win!!


Shout Out to everyone for your amazing response, resolve, and cooperation Monday during a very out of the ordinary event. I am very proud to lead this group.

Shout Out to Kindergarten and 1st grade sponsored, very spooky and delicious pitch-in!! I heard a lot of appreciative comments!!

Shout Out to those of you that are committing to a growth mindset by reflecting, having tough conversations, and focusing on what is best for kids whether through Culturize or other conversations we are having about our student experience. Thank you!

When your focus is on everything you actually are focused on nothing. Pick one personal & one professional thing that you will focus on this week & commit to not only want to do better, but be better.

Visuals - Progress thru Change Pt. 2

The only way for things to get better are through changes big and small, individually and as a team, as well as in what we think and what we do. Embrace the change knowing we will do great things!
