If your schedule permits, plan to join our students on Monday, December 2 at 7:00 pm at Cornerstone Park as they perform in the Annual "Christmas in the Park" holiday event. The event includes the Mayor's Christmas Tree lighting ceremony with seasonal music performed by area school children, including our very own 4th Grade Eagle Choir!


We cannot believe the holiday season is upon us. For many, this season is filled with joy and laughter. We also understand that the holidays can be a stressful time for some and we want to help. If your family could use any support during the holidays, please contact our counselor, Mrs. Marlene Gabriel ( All information shared will be confidential.

Site Council

The Sunflower Site Council will be meeting at 6 pm in the library on the following dates: 9/17/19, 11/12/19, 2/11/20, 4/14/20.

All meetings are open to the public.

Kansas schools are required to establish site councils composed of the principal, teachers and other school personnel, parents, business representatives, and other community groups.

Site councils have a responsibility to provide advice and counsel in the following areas: evaluating district and school performance goals and objectives, determining methods to meet those goals and objectives, and other areas as requested by the board of education.

Remember, the work of the site council is advisory only; it makes recommendations, not decisions.

Sunflower PTO

Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) has been an integral part of Sunflower Elementary for many years. Through fundraisers and fun events, they are able to provide funds to teachers, classrooms, and the school.

We invite everyone to join the Sunflower PTO Facebook page. By searching "Gardner Sunflower PTO" under Pages, you will be able to join the group and receive updated PTO information.
