Order Your Yearbooks: UPDATE

We have once again partnered with Balfour to design our yearbooks and they have NOW made it available to purchase these online. If you have not purchased a yearbook yet, please consider purchasing one. This is the only way that you can make sure your student has one. Last year there were many families who were frustrated and quite unhappy when they were unable to purchase a yearbook at Open House when we sell a few on a first come basis.

The PRE-ORDER window has officially closed. The next available time to purchase a yearbook will be during Open House when these are sold on a first come first serve basis.

Sunset Ranch is a STEAMS School

Please read about what we have been working on and plan to implement next year. We have been working hard to come up with ways to show how our students here are using Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math and Service Learning to facilitate learning in the classroom. This program is called STEAMS. It is still a work in progress but we wanted to show you what we have so far. We are excited to have a great group of staff members and students who are constantly trying to achieve more and make our students the best in the country!

Upcoming Events

Jamba Fundraiser

It's that time of year again!!! 

Jamba Juice will be here every Tuesday after school from 2:20-2:45 (unless they sell out of smoothies). All funds raised will go towards next year's second grade students for their overnight trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We start the fundraising efforts early to cut down on the cost of this field trip and have done so each year.

We hope that you will bring your Jamba money every Tuesday from now until school ends so we can beat what we raised last year!

Small  $2.00
Medium $4.00. .

Thank you for your support!
