About Sunnyside Elementary School (8388)


Sunnyside Elementary School


Sunnyside Elementary School (SSE) is a Title I campus located in rural southwest Colorado and serves preschool through fifth-grade students. It is one of eight elementary schools in Durango School District 9-R. Sunnyside offers a developmentally appropriate curriculum based on the Colorado Academic Standards to all students. Sunnyside strives to make a rewarding impact in each child's life by ensuring they all reach their highest potential. Sunnyside is a small rural school with all of the servi ces offered in the larger schools while providing a ''family'' environment. Sunnyside partners with the local community in many ways and this is highlighted in our thriving branch of the Southwest LaPlata Public Library housed inside the school. In addition, the school works together to help promote a lifelong love of reading and books through community and school-sponsored events like our school-wide reading incentive program, ''Books & Blankets'', ''Rock & Read'' and ''Edible Books.'' At Sunnyside, we exist to inspire, equip, and empower our students to make a powerful impact on their world, both now and in the future, by explicitly teaching them how to become ''Bulldog Scholars'': through our Portrait of a Graduate (P.O.G) . Our scholars actively learn by opening their minds, taking educational risks, persevering through struggles, and reflecting on their knowledge and themselves. During the 2022-23 school year, Sunnyside Elementary joined the Early Literacy Grant funded by Colorado Department of Education to ensure our students are reading proficiently.
