Hello Sunnyside!

We want to give a huge shout-out to all the SES students reading their hearts out to raise money for Sunnyside right now! And how about these amazing author visits? Read-A-Thon is such a beautiful manifestation of all that makes Sunnyside so special and we are abundantly grateful to our fearless leader, Leslie, and the many parent volunteers who have stepped up to make this fundraiser a huge success!

Auburn + Heather, PTSA Co-Presidents ????

Special Events + Celebrations ????

Let’s show Sunnyside TEACHERS our support!
In their contract negotiations, PPS teachers are demanding smaller class sizes and other important changes that will only improve your child’s education.
This is a difficult battle that can use all the parent and student support it can possibly get! TUESDAYS are for wearing blue!!
Questions? Feel free to reach out to 4th-grade teacher Jeremy Thomas – jtinpdx1975.
