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.

Welcome Back

I am very excited about the 2018-2019 school year! We must all have a sense of urgency as we start the year. This year we focus on taking ownership and pride in the great work we have to do and the opportunity we have to affect the lives of others. I am confident we have the right people in the right places, to make a positive impact on kids and families. I am prouder than ever to be leading this incredible staff to new heights!


Shout Out to everyone that came to help out at registration. We had a great turnout and I heard remarks that this was the smoothest registration day in years!

Shout Out to Joan and Erika for all the hard work they have put in to help make the start of the 2018-2019 school year great!

Shout Out to our Tier I PBIS team for dedicating 2 full days to reboot our classroom and school-wide PBIS...thank you!

Shout Out to our custodial staff for all the help with furniture moves, cleaning, building, and everything else they have done beyond summer cleaning!
