Dear Sunset Hills Family, 

As we conclude the 2022-2023 school year, I would like to thank our entire school community for a fantastic year. We have so much to celebrate and be proud of as a school community! Our staff has worked hard all year to ensure that our students are learning at the highest levels and as a result, our students have shown tremendous growth!

We successfully completed the state testing in April. Thank you to parents and staff for your support and encouragement of our students during the testing time frame and throughout the year! We should have your child’s results by August and will send them home when we receive them.

Teacher and staff appreciation is the week of May 1-5. Thank you to our extraordinary teachers and staff for their commitment to our students and families throughout the year. Their dedication to the growth of all students is appreciated each and every day! This newsletter contains our teacher and staff appreciation days. Thank you for your continued appreciation and support of our SHES staff!

We will be concluding the school year with several culminating events. We have our NJHS induction in May. Our girls basketball, boys soccer and girls soccer made the playoffs; which begin the week of May 8th. Our outstanding band and choir students will have their final concerts this month as well. We will celebrate all students involved in athletics and their accomplishments at the sports banquet on May 18th. Kindergarten Celebration and 8th Grade Promotion will take place during the last week of school. These are just a few of the events taking place this month. Please review the calendar of events for all of our May events.

During the summer, please keep an eye out for the summer letter that will be sent out to families in mid July. This will notify you of your child’s teacher for the 2023-2024 school year. This will also contain the beginning of the year events and important dates for the start of the year.

Sunset Hills, Home of the Bobcats, and an “A” rated school, is an amazing place to be! As always, it is an honor to be a partner in your child’s education. I wish you all a very safe and healthy summer! We look forward to seeing you next school year! Have a wonderful summer!
