  • A Welcome From Our Principal
    Welcome to Sunflower Elementary school and community. We are striving to provide students a school experience that emphasizes academic excellence and social responsibility while providing a positive learning atmosphere.

    Sunflower serves approximately 500 students in grades kindergarten through Fifth. Each grade level has 3 or 4 classrooms staffed by dedicated and talented teachers and support staff. We have an English as a Second Language (ESL) program to support our students whose home language is not English. We provide a full range of Special Education programs to support our students with special needs.  Our partnership with the Lawrence Boys & Girls Club provides a high quality before and after school program for our families.

    Sunflower’s active PTO supports our educational programs through a variety of ways. PTO provides grants to our teaching staff for curriculum, supplies, and field trip opportunities. Our PTO supports our local families in need.  They provide fun opportunities for our families to get involved in school with activities including: School Carnival, Book Fair, Holiday celebrations and programs with our local business partners.

    Through our Positive Behavior Support and CI3T program Sunflower teaches our students clear expectations for behavior across the school setting. Our staff works hard to provide students positive reinforcement for meeting these expectations through our BEST Bucks program.  Our BEST motto is:

    Be – Responsible

    E – for Effort

    S – Show Respect and

    T – Try!

    Our staff also provides a comprehensive social skills curriculum; Positive Actions that emphasizes making positive choices that build students’ self esteem.

    Thanks for visiting our Website. Please call if you have any question we can help answer.
