Dear Families of Sunset Hills,
As we conclude the 2019-2020 school year I would like to thank our entire school community for a successful year. Although this year did not end in the way anyone could have anticipated, I applaud the efforts of our staff, students, and parents for your support with distance learning.  The ongoing partnership between school and home continues to allow for academic, social and emotional growth in our students.  This was evident as we all came together during the 4th quarter to support one another, with the main focus being our students and their success.  I feel honored to be a part of our incredible Sunset Hills community!

We will be finishing the school year with a couple of culminating events to celebrate our kindergartners who have completed their first year of grade school and our 8th grade students who will be moving onto high school.  While these celebrations will be virtual, we hope to make them a special memory for our students and their families.  The kindergarten and 8th grade teachers will be reaching out to families regarding details of these virtual celebrations.  Events that are typically held at the end of the year, such as NJHS and Jr. Thespian Induction, will be postponed until next year.
Teacher and staff appreciation is the week of May 4-8. Thank you to our amazing teachers and staff for their commitment to our students and families throughout the year. Their dedication to the growth of all students is appreciated each and every day!  During these unprecedented times, our teachers have done an outstanding job of planning for instruction through virtual lessons, meetings, and community building activities from a distance.  Please show your appreciation for your child’s teachers and staff during teacher and staff appreciation week. Our PTO has organized a daily appreciation that you can view in the newsletter.  

As we conclude the year, we have set up the following dates for parents/guardians to come to the school for chromebook return and distribution of student materials.  The dates and times are as follows:
  • May 18, 2020 3:30-5:30pm - PreK - 8
  • May 19, 2020 3:30-5:30pm - PreK - 8
  • May 20, 2020 8:00-10:00am - PreK - 8
  • May 20, 2020 4:00-6:00pm - 8th Grade
  • May 21, 2020 8:00-10:00am - PreK - 8

We will send out more information on the process for return and distribution of materials as we get closer to the week of May 18.  

During the summer, please keep an eye out for the summer letter that will be mailed in mid July. This will notify you of your child’s teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. This will also contain the beginning of the year events and important dates. 

Sunset Hills, Home of the Bobcats, is an amazing place to be! As always, it is an honor to be a partner in your child’s education. I wish you all a very safe and healthy summer!  We look forward to seeing you next school year! Have a wonderful summer! ​
