Dear Sunset Elementary Families,


On behalf of the Sunset Elementary PTO, welcome back for the 2017-2018 school year! Your PTO has been busy planning another year of fun events and activities that carry out our mission to strengthen relationships in our community and provide financial support for the school.


First and foremost, the PTO is a volunteer-run organization and we would not be able to do all that we do without our army of volunteers. Whether you choose to cut Box Tops at home, plan a class party, assist in the Cafeteria, or serve as a Committee Chair for one of our events, we sincerely appreciate your time and effort. We are always looking for new volunteers and we would love to help you find an opportunity that works with your schedule. Besides helping your child’s school, you will also get to know great people!


Fundraising is also an important part of the PTO’s work. We are proud to support Sunset students, faculty, staff, and administration by providing resources that are outside the scope of the school’s budget. Because of the generosity of Sunset families, the PTO has been able to make significant investments the last two years in classroom technology and items that promote a healthy lifestyle. You are welcome to review PTO purchases from previous years. Our fundraisers are both active (Invest In Your Child, Fun Run, Golf Tournament, etc.) and passive (Box Tops, Publix Partners, etc.) and we appreciate your participation in these programs so that we may continue to provide Sunset Elementary and our children with extraordinary resources.


Finally, if you have not already done so, I encourage you to register on our new PTO website. Registering on this site is the best way to stay informed because you will receive the weekly e-newsletter, The RoundUp, and timely e-mails about PTO and school activities. Of course, we also recommend you join the PTO  and “like” our Facebook page!


All are invited to the first PTO General meeting of this school year on Thursday, August 18 at 9:15am in the SSES Cafeteria, though we welcome your feedback and suggestions at any time.


I am looking forward to seeing you and enjoying another great year at Sunset!


Sarah Jones

2017-18 President
