This week we will celebrate our Veterans. Our assembly is an annual tradition that allows us to honor those who have served, or are serving, our country. We are so grateful for the freedoms the brave men and women in our Armed Services have provided for us. On behalf of our staff, thank you. 

Have a wonderful week!

Veterans Day Assembly -- Wednesday, November 7th, 9:30-10:00 am

Please join us for our annual Veterans Day Assembly. If you have served our country, you are our special guest and we would love to see you attend. Each year we honor the families of our students who have served by highlighting their service in a video. If your family member is not in our video from last year, please email Leslie Lederman at ledermanl@issaquah.wednet.edu a picture and some basic information (name of family member, branch of service, name(s) of students associated with the family member) so the picture can be added. The deadline for pictures is today, November 5th @ 5:00 pm.


 PICTURE RETAKE DAY IS NOVEMBER 13TH

If  you were unhappy with your child's school picture and wish to  to have a picture retake, please send in your complete picture envelope on Nov. 13th. Your child will turn in the envelope to the photographer and have their picture retaken.

If your child was absent or is new to Sunny Hills they will have their picture taken for the yearbook. If you would like to order pictures, have your child stop by the office and pick up an order envelope.

You may sign up for conferences beginning Nov. 1st - Nov. 30th.
