Mrs. Quesinberry has set our Accelerated Reader (AR) goals for 2014 - 2015 to 40,000 points by May 31, 2015.  Because we've reached our AR half-way goal of 20,000 points, students will ALSO be allowed to wear a FAKE MUSTACHE at our CRAZY HAIR SPIRIT DAY on JANUARY 30, 2015.  Students should provide their own mustaches.  You can mark one directly on the face with easily removable facial make-up or tape one made out of paper, yarn, fur, felt, etc.  Some party stores or dollar stores even have them in stock.  Congratulations and keep reading!  Let's get to our end-of-the-year goal as well!  Remember, the library is open (unless posted) every morning at 8:15 and Wednesdays after school for you to check out books and take AR quizzes.

Sunset Walk-a-Thon

Get your walking shoes on and get ready for Sunset's Annual Walk-a-Thon on Friday, May 15th.  This is a fun event the kids enjoy year after year. This year there will be an option to do an obstacle course while completing your laps, vendors that will have prizes for the children and a great treat when they are all finished! 

Walk-a-Thon information including the sponsors sheets, volunteer sign-up sheet, and a shout-out order form have been sent home and posted on the school website.  The kids can collect pledges from friends and family.  Want to give  a "shout-out" to encourage your student during the Walk-a-Thon, then order a Shout-out...the kids love it!


Time to order your Sunset Yearbook!!

The yearbook fliers have gone home!  Please make checks payable to Sunset PTO.  Yearbooks are $25. 
This year, there is also an online option!  The online option will close on May 8th, 2015, so if that's how you would like to purchase a yearbook, please do it now :)
There are extra fliers available in the office foyer.
Please note that, as in years past, this is the FIRST time we have offered yearbooks for sale. There was NO option to buy them in the beginning of the year.  We know it can get confusing with students at other schools, which do offer early purchase.
Don't miss out on all the fun school year memories!  Buy your yearbook today!
