Principal's Pen

Dear Parents,

Our school year has started off great! We are so happy to see our students, families, and the community return to our school for another great year!

On Friday, August 30, we will have our PBIS Pep Rally. Students may dress down in jeans and a Sunset Park t-shirt or school colors (blue and gold). Classroom teachers may communicate a class color for students to wear to show off their class spirit. We will have many special guest with us including Devonte Holloman, South Pointe Head Football Coach, who will give our students a few words of encouragement to have a great school year.

We have many exciting events taking place this school year. I want to personally encourage all of our families to get involved. We understand that our success as a school depends on us working together to do what is best for students. As always, if you would like to speak with me about anything, please call, email, or stop by. I want to see you at our school!

Children First,

Dr. Barnes
