Popcorn Friday’s will start soon! And we need your help!
Popcorn Fridays is a tradition at Sunny Hills where our kid's (K-5) have the opportunity to purchase popcorn from our PTA every Friday during recess. We are currently seeking volunteers to help pop and serve. Popcorn Friday's are staffed with 2 PTA volunteers every Friday and the commitment is roughly 2-2 1/2 hours every 1-2 months, depending on the amount of volunteers we have. Training is provided. This is a great way to get involved outside of the classroom. Please contact Colleen O'Keefe at to sign up!

Yearbook Ordering is Now Available
Yearbook Ordering is Now Available
We've been working hard over the summer to get our yearbook ordering website online, and we're happy to announce it's ready to go. We have some great new upgrade options available for you this year, too! You can order our basic color yearbook in soft cover as in previous years, or you can upgrade from a soft cover to a hard cover book. Another popular upgrade allows you to have your students name printed in foil on the cover. Our other upgrades are an autograph insert, yearbook stickeys, or the Zoom year in review insert. You can take advantage of one or more of these upgrades, depending on your preferences, or you can stay with our base soft cover color yearbook. The choice is yours! Additionally, families of 5th graders have the option of purchasing a Love Line for their student. Love Lines consist of one small photo plus a single line of text and are a great way to wish your student well as they enter middle school and to congratulate them for a job well done.
Ready to order? Go to and enter in our school code which is 12225115. Have questions about what each option looks like? Hover your cursor over the option in the Additional Yearbook Options section at the bottom of the order page and you will see a pop-up with a photo and description of the option. Please note that if you purchase a Love Line for your 5th grade student, we will contact you later in the year to collect the photo and line of text. This information will not be collected during the ordering process.

Still have questions? Go to the Yearbook section on the PTA website or contact Cheryl Furey at and she'll answer any questions you may have.
