Final Day of the Annual Give Campaign

The Annual Give Campaign has been extended through Thursday, October 4th. We need your participation and generosity to meet our goal this year.
Sunset depends on parent donations to pay for our Outdoor Science, Art, Playworks, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) programming.  Your donations also help to support community-building events like Garden Days, School-wide Picnic, Science Night, and Movie Night. All donations are tax deductible and go directly to our school.
If you haven’t donated already, please make your donation by Thursday, October 4th. You can stop by the PTA table Thursday morning, or donate online here:

Next Wednesday is International Walk & Roll to School Day! It’s a great way to promote health and physical fitness and help our students get off to a great start in the morning. Join staff and parent station leaders by 8:20am at either of the meeting areas (37th @ Ortega or 44th @ Ortega), walk to school together and earn small prizes. You may also choose your own route! Please remember to cross streets safely, and have fun! See the attached flyer for more details, and for five more Walk & Roll dates over this school year.

The Sunset Auction is coming!

 Do you have season tickets, a vacation home or a valuable skill that you can donate? Are you willing to host a playdate, or to provide lessons or a unique experience? Let us know and submit a donation form to the Gala Box in the office by October 26th!

If you have questions or are looking for suggestions, contact Lisa Rockefeller at

School Tours Volunteer Request

Sunset school tours start next week on Thursday, October 18th! If you have about 10-15 minutes to spare after drop off on the 18th or on the next couple of Thursdays, consider stopping by the library to briefly speak with perspective parents as they wait for the 9am tour to begin. They always appreciate hearing from current parents. Thank you!
