The Sunrise Drive Family Faculty Organization (FFO) are parents, teachers, and faculty that work together to support Sunrise Drive Elementary students. We help organize volunteers, coordinate special projects, and raise funds to help educate our children.
All parents with student(s) enrolled at Sunrise are automatically members and we encourage you to volunteer and attend school and FFO events.
ABOUT: Find out about us — with pictures and contact info!
MEETINGS: General meetings begin after student drop-off, at 8:05 AM, in the Learning Resource Center (our library, aka the LRC), and last about an hour.
EVENTS: See all events and FFO meetings on the Calendar.
VOLUNTEER: Check out the volunteer page for opportunities!
The funds we raise make academic and family events possible at Sunrise:
- Academic: Field trips, artists in residence, online computer programs for reading (RAZ Kids) and math (Reflex Math), subscriptions to Scholastic News and Time for Kids, supplemental art class supplies, and 5th grade Legacy Project materials.We budget over $30,000 for grants and teacher discretionary money for specific classroom items. This means that the teachers and school community have the biggest influence in how the money is spent – the FFO just facilitates and approves the spending.
- Family Events: Talent Show, Science Night, Fine Arts Gala, Chinese Festival, Sunrise Steppers Celebration, Family Clean-Up Days, Book Fairs, 5th Grade Promotion, and the Community Garden.
We welcome everyone and hope to see you at our FFO meetings, volunteering at events, and helping us continue to make Sunrise Drive Elementary a great experience for our kids!
