Important Dates to Remember for the School Year!
Posted by: Shelby Biddy Published: 8/20/17

Dear Sunshine Gardens Community,


Please mark your calendar for Back to School Night at 6:00 PM on September 7th! In this post, you will find other important dates to keep in mind as we start the school year.


Also, be sure to stop by the office where parents will find levelled book bags to check out!  It is a great way to reinforce reading at home. I am looking forward to an amazing school year. 


Best Regards,

Shelby Biddy

Principal, Sunshine Gardens Elementary School
