LEGISLATIVE ACTION

A representative from the Sunrise PTA helps bring the voice of our community to the State legislation and fight for issues that matter to our children the most. 

SCIENCE PROGRAM

The Sunrise Science program is 100% funded by the PTA, has a dedicated science teacher, and a full science laboratory.
The purpose of the program is to encourage a love of science, foster STEM growth, and improve science scores. 
Your generous donations fund the teacher's salary, materials, and helps ensure the continuation of the program in our school.
"Middle school teachers recognize Sunrise scientists right away. After experiencing the Sunrise lab our students have a knowledge base that is deeper than other students coming into middle school. This program is a gift to the students of Sunrise. "
- Mrs. Padget, Sunrise Science Teacher
