Principal's Message

  • Dear Sunset Families,

    Welcome to a new school year!  What a joy it has been to be a part of our wonderful Sunset family for the past 13 years!  As we venture into a new school year, it is important to revisit our school vision: Inspiring Excellence Together.  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.

    At the beginning of August, parents and staff will come together to review our vision, values, and aligning goals.  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.

    Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas you’d like to discuss.

    Mandi Jones
