Letter from Our Principal

On behalf of the students, their families, and the staff of Sunset Elementary School I would like to welcome you to the Home of the Eagles. At Sunset Elementary School we believe it is our job to ensure all of our students have options! We want our Sunset students to not only dream big when it comes to what they want their life to be like when they grow up, but to have the skills needed to make these dreams come true.

In order to ensure this happens we as a staff have high expectations for our students and team with families to ensure success. We believe very strongly in the statement, “It takes a village to raise and educate a child”. It is for this reason that we work hard to communicate with families what is expected, where their child falls in the area of academic achievement. We look at what steps need to be taken so that together we can ensure positive options for each child in his / her future. At Sunset you are not alone in making sure your child masters what is needed to be successful – we are a team and together we will do what is needed for all students have the skills they need to reach their dreams / options they choose.

If you are presently a part of the Sunset Eagle Family then thank you for making Sunset your home and being part of the village that makes our school a such a great place! If you are looking for a school that has high academic expectations and where your child will gain the skills needed to make their dreams a reality then Sunset Elementary is waiting for you and your child to become a part of the Eagle Family, because, “When You are SOARing with the Eagles – You are SOARing with the Best!”

A Message from the Superintendent's Office about Prop 206

The Minimum Wage and Paid Time Off Initiative, also known as Proposition 206, was approved on November 8, 2016.

Proposition 206 is designed to increase the minimum wage to $10 in 2017, $10.50 in 2018, $11.00 in 2019, and $12 in 2020. Starting in 2021, the measure will increase the minimum wage based on the cost of living index for Arizona. Effective July 1st, the initiative also guarantees 40 hours of annual paid sick time to employees of businesses with 15 or more employees and 24 hours to those of businesses with less than 15 employees. The measure entitles employees to accrue one hour of paid sick time for every 30 hours worked. The measure permits earned paid sick time to be utilized for an employee's medical care, an employee's need to care for a family member, a public health emergency or addressing domestic violence.

For Cartwright School District, more than 700 employees will be impacted, with a recurring annual cost in excess of $650,000.
