Mission Statement: The mission of the Sunrise Acres Community is to increase academic achievement through accountability, pride, and grit to ensure success in college, career, and beyond.
Dear Sunrise Acres Students, Parents, Families, and School Community,
Welcome to Sunrise Acres ES! Welcome home! We are glad that you are here. We are so happy that you have chosen our school for your child’s education. Our school strives every day to provide a rich academic environment full of amazing opportunities for all students. We will honor our pledge to create a safe and respectful learning environment for our entire school community.
This is my second year as the principal of Sunrise Acres. I’m looking forward to another great year working with all of you. Together, we will make a difference! Our theme this year is “Six Houses…One Family!” We will embrace this philosophy in everything we do at school. Community pride and school spirit are extremely important concepts to me! This year, we will be inviting our parents, families, and community to join us every day for our morning ceremony. This will help us strengthen our home and school connections.
We will continue to work together to increase academic achievement, accelerate student learning, and ensure success for our Jaguars. Our school will be the “hub” of the community where all learners can collaborate and develop a sense of belonging.
I’m thrilled to announce that we have designed two science labs for our primary grades and intermediate grades. We will focus more on science experiments, hands-on tasks, and engaging projects. Let’s move full STEAM ahead! We will ramp up our Accelerated Reader (AR) Program and include more motivation and incentives to inspire our students to build their reading skills. We will be working together to improve student achievement in math. We are implementing i-Ready diagnostic assessments in K-5 this year. This alignment will help us monitor student progress and help our students to excel in reading and math. Please help us boost our student engagement and participation this year. Please ensure that your child is at school every day on time. Attendance and positive school behavior are linked to student success! We will continue to focus our attention on improving attendance and enhancing our student leadership initiative. Our Jaguars will play a central role in our house meetings and community service projects. It’s all about serving our school community and making a difference for others!
I am honored to be your principal. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. I am always happy to hear from all of you!
Ms. Iverson is a proud member of UMUSA! Kindness starts here!
Six houses…One family! Welcome home! Let’s go, Jaguars!
