What is a SUN Community School?
SUN Community Schools in Multnomah County are full-service neighborhood hubs where the school and partners from across the community come together to make sure kids and families have what they need to be successful - in school and in life. SUN Community Schools mobilize and strategically organize community resources to provide:
- Strong core instructional program
- Educational support and skill development for youth and adults
- Enrichment and recreation activities
- Family involvement and support
- Social, health and mental health resources
- Family and community events
At SUN Community Schools, the collective efforts of youth, parents, businesses, faith communities, libraries, and community organizations create a network of supports that ensure academic success, family self-sufficiency, and economic prosperity. SUN Community Schools are open to all ages, preschool to seniors, with a focus on students in the immediate school community.
SUN Community Schools are the school-based service delivery sites for the SUN Service System, a broader system of community-based care and support for children and their families. There are currently 90 SUN Community Schools in six school districts across Multnomah County. RGMS is lucky to have a SUN School and we are considered the least needy of the sites. That is one reason why registering for all of our partner events and activities is important.
