Lewis Ledger - Week 12

October 28, 2018

Sunny Heights is where everyone is valued and respected. Our vision is to inspire a passion for learning in a student-centered, family friendly environment.

Week 12 - Daily Focus

The week back from Fall Break was one of the best weeks of the year! The positive attitudes, dedicated work ethic, and focus on the basics had an amazing impact on our students. As we continue to improve the culture of the building, so will our student's growth and achievement. Keep up the great work!

It takes one student success story to get you fired up to want to return the following school year. When we are intentional in getting to know S's on a more personal level, sometimes we experience a journey that lasts us a lifetime...via#Culturize

Visuals - Progress thru Change

The only way for things to get better are through changes big and small, individually and as a team, as well as in what we think and what we do. Embrace the change knowing we will do great things!
