Message from the Principal

  • Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Sunset.  There is a lot to smile about!

    Our kindergarten playground has a new play structure to match the two on our main playground. I tried the slide..principal approved.

    We have some new staff members joining us at Sunset; they bring enthusiasm, knowledge, and positivity to our already amazing team.

    Our Sunset Learning Garden was well tended by parent volunteers over the summer and is awaiting students eager to explore, pull invasive weeds, and find ladybugs. We have expanded the space by installing new cyclone fencing and will be adding fruit trees and mulch to our garden.

    As always, my number one goal as principal is to ensure student safety, and my decisions are always based on what is best for children. In 2018-2019 we conducted safety walks and entered work orders for items posing a safety concern. This year we will continue our focus on overall school safety. This includes helping our students learn expectations and develop their social emotional intelligence. I welcome your input, ideas, and reports of safety concerns throughout the year so we can leverage solutions and address them efficiently. Our collective vigilance should be the norm and not the exception.

    My second goal remains to lead our school in such a way that the only possible outcome is excellence for our students. At Sunset we support children in reaching their potential. Through a team effort, we strive for continual improvement in all we do. We appreciate your partnership in the ever changing journey of educating children.

    Here's to an amazing school year of fun and learning (they really do go well together).


    Tom Jones, Principal
