Lawrence Public Schools has partnered with the KU Child Behavior Lab to conduct a student climate survey. We are asking parents of youth in Lawrence Public Schools to allow their children to participate. If you say yes, your child will be asked to answer a series of questions while at school. This information will help professionals and the school district to identify ways to improve the school environment by reducing bullying and other negative behaviors. You can provide consent in one of 3 ways: online via at http://bit.ly/KULPS, by emailing a signed copy to firstname.lastname@example.org or turning in a signed consent form to the office. Thanks for your support.
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.
