    Facilities Proposal Meeting
    For the first time in 18 years, the District is asking residents to consider a bond proposal to add room at all schools in response to rising enrollment and stressed capacity. What does this mean for Sunnyside Elementary School? You’re invited to attend a community meeting on October 3 at 6 p.m. at Sunnyside. A School Board member, District administration and our school principal will present information and answer questions about the Election Day bond proposal for Mounds View Public Schools. All are invited to attend this meeting or any of the other meetings scheduled this fall. Learn more at www.moundsviewschools.org/facilities

    Bev Zelinski, director of student services at Mounds View Public Schools, will provide an overview of District special education services. After this short presentation, the SEPPAC co-chairs will lead a parent-to-parent discussion group.

Donation examples include but are not limited to: student’s favorite book to the class collection, have a special “guest reader” read a book to the class, stickers, pencils, pens, markers, erasers, a board game to the class for indoor recess days, etc.

    Your child’s teacher will also help recognize your child’s special day.
