Principal’s Message

Dear Sunnyside Families

The Sunnyside faculty and staff provide instructional environments and activities that are best suited for your child’s needs.  As part of the New Castle Community School Corporation, your child takes part in Success Periods everyday.  The periods are designed to ensure that students have every opportunity to master state standards. Success periods also provide enrichment opportunities for students who have mastered grade level standards.  Aside from the customary grade level studies, students also participate in art, music, physical education, and library/computer time each week.  Sunnyside also participates in several STEM activities each year through the Reaching for Tomorrow program sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America.

You can be assured that all Sunnyside staff are highly qualified. It is my goal, as principal,  that each student learn and grow in an environment that inspires them to read, study, and grow into skillful learners and responsible citizens. Thank you for allowing the instructional staff at Sunnyside to join with you in the educational journey of your child.  Great things happen when we come together and work together!
