Principal's Message

Sunny Heights Families,

We have completed the 1st quarter of the 2019-2020 school year and Fall Break is here! Students and staff have been working very hard to get back to learning. We celebrated our 1st quarter successes with a GREAT CORE Carnival on Friday. Thank you to all the families and community members that dedicated their time and provided many donations to make the CORE Carnival so successful!

I hope that students, families, and staff enjoy the break and are able to relax as well as enjoy some family time. We look forward to seeing everyone back at Sunny Heights on October 21st to start an excellent 3rd Quarter!!

As always, thank you for all that you do!

Your proud principal,

Barton Lewis

District Strategic Planning

This fall, MSD of Warren Township will be creating a comprehensive strategic plan based on community input that will ensure all students and staff have the conditions necessary to develop and apply Journey of a Graduate (JoG) skills and dispositions. The Journey of a Graduate skills are a set of 6 skills and dispositions that have been identified by our community needed for success in and out of school. The JoG skills are Critical Thinking, Citizenship, Communication, Collaboration, Content Knowledge, and Resilience. These JoG skills will serve as the foundation of the district strategic plan.

One way the district will capture community input is through an online survey. Linked below is a short survey that will ask questions around our strengths as a district and help us identify areas for improvement.
