About Us - Sunrise School

  • Principal's Message

    Welcome back! 

    I hope you all had a great summer and are relaxed, recharged, and ready to start a new school year.

    We have a lot of exciting things planned for this upcoming year and can’t wait to get started.

    Marisa EspostoThe Sunrise team recognizes the importance of making sure that ALL of our students have an opportunity to learn new skills, grow as individuals, and engage in social, academic, and community-based experiences.

    This year, Sunrise will continue to put an emphasis on improving our career readiness instruction for all of our learners. This includes taking a deeper dive into the Career Readiness Skills (CRS) and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) that we started to introduce last school year. Students of all ages will work on skills related to self-awareness and self-management, establishing, and maintaining relationships, and social problem solving. To make sure our students are getting the most out of our instruction, we will be working on improving our transition and vocational related assessments, data collection on soft and hard skills, and job matching strategies. 

    In addition to our attention to CRS and SEL, we will also be focusing on improving our instruction in English Language Arts or ELA. This includes an increase in instructional activities related to reading fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and exposure to different types of literature and texts. We will be using the Alternative Eligible Content (AEC) to drive instruction for our students and are excited about making progress with your children. 

    For all our returning families, I look forward to working with you and your child again. For our new families, WELCOME - I look forward to getting to know you all better over this next school year. 

    At Sunrise, we believe that all students can succeed and that it is our job to ensure that they have the opportunity to do so. 

    As always, please reach out to us about anything!
