Principal's Message

Sunny Heights Families,


We have had a GREAT week at Sunny Heights Elementary! Our students celebrated Black History Month with a school-wide assembly, then had a great family evening presenting their projects on history making African-Americans. Everyone in attendance learned a little and had a lot of fun!


Spring Break is just 10 school days away...can you believe it!! We want to make sure we get the most out of the next two weeks. Monday we will begin celebrating Read Across America with a spirit week focused on the importance and fun of reading. Please stress this with your children and make some time to read with them whenever possible. Also, our 3rd graders will be taking the IREAD test beginning March 11.


Thank you for ALL that you do!


Have a great weekend!


Your proud principal,

Barton Lewis
