Principal's Message

  • Dear Sunset Families,

    Welcome to the 22-23 School Year!

    What a joy it has been to be a part of our wonderful Sunset family for the past 16 years!  As we venture into a new school year, we would like to start by sharing our new vision statement: Sunset children, families, and staff are dedicated to creating successful students who are empowered to grow and thrive socially, emotionally, and academically. The foundation of realizing this vision is rooted in safety. We will continue to make decisions with your child’s safety at the forefront of our minds.

    Our students’ needs and interests, alongside the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards(AZCCRS) shape our instructional process. As we prepare to teach your children, we will focus on creating and nurturing relationships, AZCCRS, utilizing data to drive instruction, character education, and maintaining a rigorous, engaging learning environment.

    Together, we will continue Sunset’s legacy of partnership, unity, and increasing success. It takes a collaborative effort on behalf of our students, parents, staff, and surrounding community to not only meet our students’ needs, but to help them exceed their capabilities and perceived potential. If you are interested in being part of our ongoing collaborative process through participation in our Site Council and/or Parent Teacher Organization, please contact our office at 602-347-3300.

    I look forward to seeing you throughout the year at pick-up, drop-off, family events, etc. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas you’d like to discuss.

    Mandi Jones
