Sunrise Lions Gazette
A message from Principal Dial...
The start of a new year is a great time to make a tax credit donation to Sunrise. Arizona is lucky to benefit from tax payers supporting public schools and getting their money back dollar for dollar when they do their state taxes. We hope you will consider giving to Sunrise as we use this money to fund field trips, after school tutoring, chorus and band equipment and many other things that our students would not otherwise get. You can learn more about this program here (https://azdor.gov/tax-credits/public-school-tax-credit) and donate to Sunrise here (https://www.dvusd.org/taxcredit). We are truly grateful for your support!
At the end of this month all students who are 9 years old (mainly this will be students in the 4th grade) will be taking the NAEP test. NAEP stands for National Assessment of Educational Progress. This test is given across the world and helps to measure how students are doing. We do not get any results from this test but want you to be aware that it is being given. More information will be going home with students who will be taking it. You can also learn more about this test here: https://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/

Meet Our Pride!
When asked who his educational inspiration was he said Dmitri Mendeleev, the creator of the modern periodic table of elements. "Like many scientists, Mendeleev had plenty of people who rejected his ideas about missing elements but he was so passionate about his ideas that he pursued it until he had created a periodic table of elements with elements that had yet to be discovered! I choose to be a teacher so that I can share my love for science with others and hopefully inspire future scientists."
When asked why he chooses to be a Sunrise Lion he said, "I choose Sunrise because of the overwhelming sense of community and caring that you get when you walk on to our campus."
Sunrise is certainly lucky to have an educator like Mr. Beverly!
When asked what inspires Miss Patty she replied, "Kids with different needs inspire me to keep doing my best. I can help them discover and learn new things every day. To me it is important to show that everyone can succeed. It is really important that our community knows we love, care and protect our students and we will always do our best for them."
We consider ourselves lucky to have Miss Patty in our Pride and are grateful for the love and dedication that she brings each and every day.
