Sunrise Drive FFO Digest

Hello !

Happy 2016!

We are half way through the school year! We've celebrated the 100th day of school already. Hard to believe how fast the school year is passing, right?

We have some great events happening at Sunrise this second semester. Coming up soon is the Science Day/Fair, Chinese Spring Festival, Math-a-thon, and the final Steppers Celebration. We expect an exciting second half of the year for our students.

Please check the FFO calendar for a list of upcoming events and activities.

We look forward to an outstanding 2016 at Sunrise Drive!
