What's Happening

Principal's Message

Dear, Parents and Guardians,

We are so excited to welcome students back to school with anticipation of another successful school year. It is our mission to support our students as independent thinkers, engaging in excellence on their academic journey. Every student comes to us with unique needs. Our educators work collaboratively to support all learners through goal setting and progress monitoring. The Sundance Elementary vision is for all learners to be risk takers learning at high levels.

If you have not already done so, please log in to the Parent Portal to complete registration for any returning student. It is essential that all phone numbers, address, emergency contacts, and medical information are updated for your child to return to campus safely. If you have difficulty accessing your Parent Portal account, please contact our office staff at (505) 866-0185. When you log in to the Parent Portal, you will see your child’s assigned teacher. Please understand we worked to create balanced rosters based on several factors. Unless there are immediate concerns we failed to acknowledge, we will not make any classroom changes.

Families of new students may call or visit the school before the first day of school to register. Proof of residency will be required. PreK, Kindergarten, and any new students will need to bring a copy of current immunization records, a copy of the original birth certificate, and Social Security card.
Before school begins we will host an Open House on Thursday, July 28th from 5:00-6:30 PM in which all families can meet their child’s teacher and see our beautiful campus.

School begins on Monday, August 1st for students in grades 1-6. Students must be in uniform on this day. Our PreK and Kindergarten students begin on Wednesday, August 3rd. PreK and Kindergarten students will be contacted by their teacher for individual conferences scheduled for August 1st and 2nd.

Students are allowed on campus beginning at 9:00 AM. The first bell rings at 9:10, and all students who arrive after 9:15 will be marked tardy and must be signed in by a parent or guardian. The school day ends at 3:30 PM. We have a staggered dismissal beginning at 3:20 for our PreK and Kindergarten students. This year we are pleased to provide free breakfast and lunch for all students. Students should report directly to the cafeteria to pick up a breakfast in the morning.

Thank you in advance for all your support as we begin a new school year. It is truly a privilege to be part of this Sundance community where parents, students, and educators work together to build positive relationships. We look forward to seeing your child and hearing about all their summer adventures. If you have any questions, please contact us at (505) 866-0185.
