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.
