Sunset Elementary School

Educating Students for Success in a Changing World!

Message from Dr. Josh Purvis, Principal

Dear Sunset Families,

I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to begin another school year at Sunset Elementary. We are blessed with a wonderful group of teachers and support staff that work tirelessly to meet the needs of all of our precious students. Our goal at Sunset is to provide the best possible education for our students. The foundation established in elementary school serves as the base for which all further educational pursuits will build upon.

As we strive to push students to reach their full potential, we know we need your help! Research overwhelmingly supports a strong relationship between parent involvement and student achievement. Please know you are not only welcome at Sunset, but we need your involvement. Our goal is to encourage your students to reach for the stars and grasp as many as they can hold. This will not happen without your support.

I am thankful for the privilege to serve your family as principal of Sunset School. I pledge to do everything I can to help, support, and encourage your children. With the wonderful faculty and staff of Sunset Elementary, brilliant students, and supportive parents, I can say with complete certainty...The Best is Yet to Come!
