Dear Sunalta Students and Families
Our staff and I want to wish all of you a safe and healthy holiday. We hope you enjoy some special moments over the break along with a well-deserved dose of rest, relaxation, and joy. Our school community has worked together to keep our spirits up through care and strength for one another. Make sure to take time to snuggle up with a great book or two and share the gift of literacy! We look forward to seeing you in 2021.
Assistant Principal News! It is with great pleasure that I announce the appointment of Ms. Larysa Hart to the position of Assistant Principal (AP) effective January 25, 2021. Larysa Hart is currently a teacher and Learning Leader at Griffith Woods. Last year she served as a Literacy Strategist in Area 1. She brings with her a portfolio of diverse experiences within the CBE, including inclusivity, early learning, literacy, and assessment.
