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.
Student agendas are an excellent way to keep this communication going. We ask parents of all students to read and sign the student agenda daily. This strategy ensures that you have seen the notes or the notices that are being sent home and are aware of homework expectations. Teachers check the agendas each morning so any communication you would like to share with them can be placed in the agenda.
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.
