At Sundown Elementary School, our positive school environment fosters mutual respect for one another. This requires parent, school, and student responsibility to assure academic success, the development of appropriate social skills, the enhancement of student self- esteem, and knowledge of the Anti-Bullying Policies. We look forward to your continued involvement in your child’s education and your participation in school events throughout the coming year. Our goal is to strengthen the home-school relationship by building a strong partnership with parents. Parents have an open invitation to volunteer, to participate, and to share in the setting and achievement of our school’s goals for our children through School Site Council (SSC), the PTA, English Learner’s Advisory Committee (ELAC), and District level committees.
Sundown, located in the northwest portion of the Antelope Valley, near the intersection of Avenue J and 60th Street West houses approximately 1050 students. While the student ethnic profile at Sundown includes representation from a broad spectrum of races, the majority of students are Hispanic and Caucasian. Our school site is composed of a main building built in 1994 and 18 permanent portables. We also have after school child care programs facilitated by the YMCA and one through the City of Lancaster.
Parents/Guardians, Education Code (EC) 48980 et seq. requires school districts to notify parents and guardians of their rights and responsibilities at the beginning of the academic year. Your signature on the Student Information - Annual Updates form sent home with your student is your acknowledgement that you've been informed of your rights. Please return the Annual Updates form to your child's school promptly.
The 2017-2018 calendar and the 2018-2019 calendar are now available. Please review the dates to familiarize yourself with the calendar. If you have any questions, please contact your child's school office.
