"At the desk where I sit, I have learned one great truth. The answer for all our national problems - the answer for all the problems of the world - comes to a single word.
That word is education."
~ Lyndon B. Johnson
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Sunquam Elementary School, home of the Sunquam Stars. Sunquam offers children in grades K-5 stimulating and rigorous learning opportunities within a safe, nurturing and supportive setting. A partnership of teachers, staff, parents and the community at large works together to create an environment that fosters the intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of every child. By providing instruction that informs, inspires and challenges, we hope to instill a love of learning that continues throughout children’s lives. Our goal is to help each child develop an enthusiasm for learning, a respect for self and others and the skills to become a creative, independent thinker.
At Sunquam Elementary we embrace the challenges of the future while we continue to cherish and celebrate the traditions of the past. It is our remarkable staff, involved parents and eager children who come together to make Sunquam such a wonderful school.
I hope your visit to our website will give you a quick snapshot of life at our school. Please explore our links to find out more about Sunquam Elementary School and its programs.
