We want to know what you think about Sunflower Elementary School. Below is a link to our Family Survey. The information from the survey will help us improve our relationships with families and students, learning conditions, and our school’s overall environment. Your answers are anonymous and a valuable asset in our improvement efforts.

For your convenience, computers will be available during parent-teacher conferences for you to complete the survey. You can also complete the survey from your mobile device or the comfort of your own home by clicking the link provided at the end of this e-mail.

The survey will be open until October 29th. Thank you in advance for your time and honest feedback.


Thank you to those parents who submitted photographs from their child's field trip!

We are always looking for fun pictures to use in the Sunflower yearbook. If you accompanied your student on their field trip, AND took pictures of your student and their friends, would you be willing to send those pictures to me? You can email the pictures to me at

Sunflower Site Council Meetings 2018-2019

The Sunflower Site Council will be meeting at 6 pm in the library on the following dates: 9/11/18, 11/13/18, 2/5/19, 4/9/19.

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
