Sunnymead Elementary – A Gold Ribbon School

Elementary school is a time for growth, challenge and discovery. At Sunnymead Elementary, we encourage and prepare students to participate fully, to take risks, to be self-advocates, and to create lasting memories and relationships with peers and staff. I am proud to be the principal of such an exciting and dynamic school and to work in the unique and beautiful town of Moreno Valley.

Our goal at Sunnymead Elementary is to provide an enriching, engaging, and challenging curriculum that will prepare students for success while at Sunnymead Elementary and for the years that follow. We believe that students, parents, and teachers all play a vital role in helping students reach their greatest potential.

Parents can check academic progress regularly by requesting teachers for RIT scores in ELA and Math.

At Sunnymead Elementary, we recognize that social/emotional development is as essential to student success as academics. This year we continue our behavioral expectations system called PBIS: Respect, Safety and Responsibility. Our goal is to provide a time for students to build connections with teachers and peers and to build a stronger sense of community and ownership at Sunnymead Elementary. Activities for the 16-17 school year will evolve from our school theme – We Dream, We Believe, We Achieve.

Sunnymead Elementary is now a proud recipient of a Gold Ribbon Award for our Mindful PBIS system. We have been recognized by the state of California for having a model program to inspire other schools. According to State Superintendent Tom Torlakson, "These schools shine as bright beacons for others, putting forth an exemplary effort to ensure that every student is ready for 21stcentury college and careers,"

I look forward to working with you and your children. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time; our continued success is dependent on your feedback.
