SUN stands for Schools Uniting Neighborhoods. SUN Community Schools are the school-based delivery sites for a comprehensive set of services including educational, enrichment, recreational, social and health services. This nationally recognized system of care works to ensure families are healthy so they can champion and support their children. The SUN Service System collaboration is managed by Multnomah County http://web.multco.us/sun/sun-community-schools and services are delivered by Latino Network www.latnet.org
SUN Community Schools is a place and support hub where schools and communities work together to support the success of children and families and provide a comprehensive array of services. They serve as the vehicle to link a school with community institutions, such as libraries, parks, community centers, neighborhood health clinics, local churches and businesses.

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
Hi Cougars! I miss everyone.
During these times you can reach me by phone or e-mail Monday-Friday, 9am - 5pm. I am here to help you navigate the vast resources available at this time. I am working with the Kelly administration on figuring out where my expertise and resources are most useful to you and them. You might receive phone calls from me and I am looking forward to connecting with you.
To my little Kelly cougars here are some things you can do: stay in touch with your teacher, keep reading and writing, send me a text/email and let me know how you are staying positive and what you are doing to have fun.
