Sunnyside Elementary



Sunnyside Parents and Families:

On February 9 and 10, we will hold parent-teacher conferences. Conferences give us an opportunity to share student progress in a two-way conversation. Parents are encouraged to ask questions of the teachers during conferences to become more informed about their students. A few examples of questions you might ask are:

·How is my child doing socially and emotionally?

· What are my child’s academic strengths and weaknesses?

· Is my child performing on grade level?

· Does my child need any extra help?

· What can I do at home to support my child?

· What is the best way to communicate with the school and the teacher?

I hope you are looking forward to the time you can meet with staff and teachers at Sunnyside.

The performance will be Thursday February 24th at 7:00PM in the Sunnyside gym. 2nd and 3rd grade will begin working on their music program that is scheduled for Tuesday April 12th at 7:00PM in the Sunnyside gym. Please put the dates on your calendar and plan on having your student in attendance. More detailed information will be coming home closer to the date. 5th grade will also continue working on their dancing and movement as they prepare for their assessment.
