Parents and teachers at Sunnyside have a long tradition of proactively working together on behalf of students. This partnership of home and school evolves from recognition that the work of the school is effective only with the cooperation and support of the home. When positive and regular two-way communication exists, the most effective and successful results are likely to be attained in the holistic growth of each student.
Teachers communicate with parents via email and using their Google Classrooms. Ongoing communication is important to ensure that parents are aware of their children's growth. Parents are encouraged to contact their child's teacher at any time.
We take pride in seeing Sunnyside as a place where parents are welcomed. Individual classrooms provide opportunities for parents to visit and to volunteer. When parents wish to visit the school/classrooms outside of times provided, we ask that the teacher be contacted and a suitable time agreed to. For safety reasons, all parents and visitors to the school are required to sign in at the office before proceeding to our classrooms. We are hopeful that we will be able to welcome parent volunteers back to Sunnyside in the 2021-2022 school year.
