Principal's Message

Sunny Heights Families,


It is hard to believe that we have completed the 3rd quarter of the school year! I am so proud of how our students, families, and staff have navigated the difficulties of the pandemic and shown tremendous RESILIENCE! Each challenge is a new opportunity for us to improve the experience for our students.


We are approaching the spring season which bring about activities for our students and families. Please see information below about a variety of opportunities for our students and families here in Warren Township.


Finally, COVID vaccinations are becoming more and more available for many. It is still crucial that our students, staff, and visitors continue wearing masks and following social distancing guidelines. We want to do our best to keep everyone safe and healthy as we head toward the final stretch of the school year!


Thank you and have a great weekend!


Your Proud Principal,


Bart Lewis

Spring Forward!!

Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday, March 14th, at 2:00 a.m. On Saturday evening, our clocks need to "spring forward" one hour. Daylight Saving Time (DST) is the practice of moving the clocks forward one hour from Standard Time during the summer months, and changing them back again in the fall. The general idea is that allows us all to make better use of natural daylight.

Calendar of Events

IMPORTANT DATES TO REMEMBER

Student Success Handbook

Warren Parents and Caregivers, here is the link to our Student Success Handbook. This handbook is updated every year to include information about how we keep students and staff safe at school, along with resources for families to access as well as information on district procedures and policies. This handbook is also shared with students. Please take a moment to review and complete this as acknowledgement that you have received the handbook. Please reach out if you have any questions.

ALL STUDENTS - ATTENDANCE

For the 2020-2021 school year, Warren Township has transitioned to a new student information system called Synergy allowing our parents and caregivers to have improved access to school information through the parent portal called ParentVUE. We are aware that at this time some students’ attendance records are reflecting students are absent, when in fact they were present. This is mostly the case for our students who are attending school VIRTUALLY on application days or in the VIRTUAL opinion full-time. We want to assure you that teachers are keeping accurate attendance records and that we are working to correct attendance records for all our students.

BLACK AND GOLD VIRTUAL SCHEDULE

PBIS Weekly Focus @ Sunny Heights Elementary

This week our students are focusing on recognizing students that show EXCELLENCE throughout the day. Excellence is shown when students put forth their best effort in any situation, especially difficult or challenging situations. We want Sunny Heights to be a place where everyone is valued, respected, and strives for their own excellence.

Updated Lunch Menu

Here is the Updated Lunch Menu from Chartwell's. Starting Monday, students will get a choice of a hot or cold entrée!

School District Publications/News Media Use

The occasion may arise when the school district wants to recognize your child or your child's school. This may include your child's photo, your child's name or your child's work in district publications, newsletters, on school district websites, and in electronic/social media or in staff training videos. We may also want to tell the media (including newspapers, television, and radio) about your child's achievements. We never knowingly release information about a student to anyone who wants to use it for commercial/political purposes. However, we will honor your request to not include your child in these types of recognition if you notify your child's school office in writing that you do not want this type of information released.

IMPORTANT: COVID-19 INFORMATION
