  • New Technology Use Charge for District Students

    In light of growing technology use and needs for students in the classroom, the District is implementing a $40 technology user charge for all students in levels K-12. We will be collecting this charge for each student at registration in July. The Technology Use Fund charge is to assist the District in acquiring, upgrading, maintaining the growth of technology in the schools. All students use technology in some way and the cost associated with this use has become more than the District can maintain on its own.

  • Summer 2015

    Dear Families of Sunset Ridge Students,                              

    We have had another great year together.  I thank all of our families for the trust they have placed in the Sunset Ridge Team.  We cherish the opportunity to get to work with your children.  I want to encourage parents to ensure that their children read throughout the summer.  It will be extremely beneficial for students to set aside at least 30 minutes each day to read.  Students should also practice their math facts and take time to write about the things they are doing over the summer months.

    Summer is a time to have fun, enjoy the outdoors and experience new things.    I hope everyone has a very safe and fun summer.  I look forward to seeing our students on August 19. 

    Please remember that school registration will be on August 4, 5, and 6.

    As always, feel free to contact me.  After July 29, you can phone me through the school office phone number
    (303-426-8907) or stop in at the front office. 


    Roger Vadeen, Principal

     Apreciadas familias de alumnos de Sunset Ridge,

     Ha sido otro año maravilloso en la Primaria Sunset Ridge.  Les doy las gracias a nuestras familias por la confianza que han depositado en el equipo de la Escuela Primaria Sunset Ridge.  Hemos disfrutado la oportunidad de trabajar con sus hijos.  Deseo estimular a los padres a asegurarse que sus hijos leen durante el verano.  Es extremadamente beneficioso que los niños lean al menos 30 minutos cada día. Además, los estudiantes también deben practicar las tablas matemáticas y escribir sobre varias cosas, durante los meses de verano.  

    El verano es una época de diversión, disfruten del aire libre y experimenten cosas nuevas.  Espero que tengan un verano sano y divertido. 

    Por favor, recuerde que las inscripciones son los días 4, 5, y 6 de  agosto.  Todas las familias que desean que sus hijos asistan a la Primaria Sunset Ridge el próximo año escolar, deben inscribir a sus hijos durante el periodo de inscripción. 

    Si usted tiene alguna pregunta, se puede comunicar conmigo a partir del 29 de julio, llamando al teléfono de la escuela (303-426-8907) o visite la oficina de la escuela después del 28 de julio.


    Roger Vadeen, Director
