    School News (NEW)
    Dear Sunnyside Families,

    We never cease to be amazed by how this community shows up: Last week we were overwhelmed with appreciation, from signs outside the school to being spoiled rotten with goodies. We felt your love and appreciation, and we hope you know that the Sunnyside staff feels the same about all of you. Thank you for being our team. We couldn’t do any of this without you.

    As just one example of how this community comes through: All three middle school marine biology trips took place this week after a three-year hiatus. Thanks to dedicated volunteers, our staff was able to take 6th graders to Newport, 7th graders up to Olympic National Park, and 8th graders (who return this evening) to Catalina Island. All reports indicate that our middle schoolers had incredible experiences (and lots of fun). Some evidence:

    From the bottom of our hearts, thank you,
    Eryn & Alix

    Della Clementine’s Guide to Getting Lost at Echo Theater (NEW)
    On Thursday, our 7th graders saw an awesome performance by high school students(including SES alumni) at Echo Theater. It is an aerial acrobatic theater for all ages. There are still some tickets available for this weekend if your family is interested.


    Art Room wish list

    Hello beautiful SES community,

    Looking for a few donations to get us through the end of the year:

    Thanks for your continued support of the Arts at Sunnyside. I really appreciate my volunteers and donations big and small. Sending positivity, Indigo


    Class pictures
    Class pictures were this week; each class took one formal photo and one goofy photo. Each photo costs $8.00. (If you are able, please consider contributing additional funds towards a scholarship. Our desire is for every student to take home a copy of their class photo.)
