C.A. Gray Junior High - Book Art
The visual arts students enrolled in the drawing and painting course at C.A. Gray recently completed a folded book project. The students used discarded books to create a work of art inside and out. Each student designed and painted the front and back cover of the books. They then folded the pages inside to create a shape or letter. What a creative way to breathe new life into something old!
Sunset is pleased to present our Students of the Month for September. The word of the month for September was "Responsibility". Our Students of the Month know what it means to be responsible. Two important aspects of learning to be responsible is following instructions when given and taking responsibility for your words and actions, which these students do.
These students enjoyed a delicious ice cream party for exhibiting good behavior and being responsible. Each student also received a certificate and a gift bag,which included a special cup with the words “Sunset Elementary School Student of the Month” inscribed on it, along with a pencil.

Attendance Protocol - UPDATE
Each school year is always an exciting time for students, staff, and families. In order to educate our students, they must be present and on time each day. To ensure success, we ask parents to ensure their children come to school on time each day unless they are sick. If your student is absent due to illness, be sure to submit a note to the school when the student returns. This protocol will be followed at each school for students who are enrolled and/or of compulsory school age.
