Sunset PTO’s Fun Run fundraiser was a success and they exceeded their goal! The challenge to our students was that if our goal was exceeded Mr. McCarten will kiss a pig. Please meet Miss Bobby Sue. She is no ordinary pig, she is a Dark Cross and the 2023 Park County 4H Heavy Weight Grand Champion AND the Grand Champion Ultrasound, which is a way muscle vs. fat is measured. She loves bully rubs, snacks, and naps. Two good sports right there!

Sunset Families, The homecoming parade is on Friday, September 22nd at 2:30. In recent years, elementary schools have had a float with our students walking in the parade. We will NOT be doing that this year. We encourage our families to take their children to watch the parade as spectators. This gives our elementary students an opportunity to observe the homecoming parade and learn what it's all about. Dismissal on Friday will follow the normal Friday schedule. Go Broncs and Fillies! Jay McCarten, M.Ed. Principal, Sunset Elementary School
