American Education Week

American Education Week spotlights the importance of a quality public education. At Sunflower we appreciate our parents’ support of the education system. We are also lucky to have a very caring staff who focuses on meeting the needs of each individual child.

Next week, students may dress like a scientist or educator on Thursday. Families may celebrate by writing “Paws”itive comments about Sunflower and public education. Students will be bringing home paper paws this week. Please submit your paws next week to be hung in the hallway and possibly be read over the announcements. Expect an email explaining a family connection project by the end of the week.

We hope you choose to participate and celebrate the great education that USD 368 provides.

November Give 60

If you can commit to just 60 minutes, we can do amazing things for our kids and our school.
