We offer Integrated Arts as part of our curriculum which include Art, Music, and Physical Education. Art is taught by Joanna Gates. Music is taught by Kristina Natale. Physical Education is taught by Andy Folkestad.
Enrichment / Gifted and Talented
The focus of our program is to provide opportunities for students to pursue and develop their potential within an enthusiastic approach towards learning that challenges inquiry, draws out individual talent, and leads to personal fulfillment and optimal academic/intellectual growth.
Student Council Students are elected to serve on the Student Council by their peers. Our student council participates in many projects designed to serve our neighborhood community and our Sunrise community. These projects have included Pennies for Patients, food drives, and the movie nights, to name a few.
English Language Support (ELS)
Our ELS program provides specialized instruction in listening, speaking, reading, and writing for English Language Learners. Students spend the majority of their time in the regular classroom with a portion of their day in the ELS classroom. The essential component of the ELS program is the development of academic language along with conversational language. The goal is to develop the student's language skills to the point he/she can work successfully in the classroom.

Before and After School Program
Sunrise offers a before and after school program which provides opportunities for reinforcement of basic skills, and enrichment activities. The program is fee based.
Sunrise has a student broadcasting system where our fifth grade students report live on activities, news, and special events that occur throughout the school. These daily broadcasts provide an excellent source of communication within the school community.
Tech-sperts consists of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students who are interested in technology and assist teachers with technology equipment. Tech-sperts learn how to setup and troubleshoot digital cameras, projectors, document cameras, and the sound system equipment as well as printers. They also learn how to troubleshoot simple tasks on the computers and smartboards.
Teachers recommend tech-sperts based on their interest in technology, academic success, willingness to miss their recess once a week, and follow the 3B's (Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful). Mrs. Liggins will dismiss the tech-sperts for lunch after the meeting.
