Our Mission:  
Our Mission at Sunny View Elementary is to build a learning community that works together to inform, inspire and empower our students to become confident lifelong learners. 

Our Beliefs:

  • The education of our children is the responsibility of all stakeholders.

  • All children should be presented with high expectations and have equal learning opportunities.

  • Our school has the responsibility to address the academic, creative, emotional, physical, and social needs of all students.

  • All children learn more effectively in a nurturing environment that is clean, safe, and disciplined.

  • Every individual in our  school is valuable and deserves dignity, fairness, and respect.

  • All students should be instructed and encouraged to set goals, complete tasks, and become knowledgeable, responsible community members.

  • Children should be taught honesty, cooperation, citizenship, and should develop personal responsibility for accepting the consequences of their behavior.

Beulah Baptist Church visited Sunny View Elementary and brought a van loaded with blankets for all students and staff. The church members went from class to class passing out soft, cozy blankets just in time for the cold weather. Students were excited to receive their gifts and were shown a great example of generosity and giving this season. Click here to access the Tryon Daily Bulletin article.
