Sunrise Dancers Earn Gold!



From our Sunrise Elementary principal. Kyle Fletcher:

Congratulations to our 5th grade students for taking home the top prize at this year's Dancing Classroom's - Colors of the Rainbow Grand Final. On Saturday afternoon at Todd Beamer high school in Federal Way, twelve of our 5th grade students represented Sunrise Elementary and competed against four other schools in a final competition for this year's Dancing Classrooms ballroom dancing championship. The kids did an amazing job and earned every bit of the top reward. I'm very proud of these students and all the 5th graders that worked so hard this year to learn their ballroom dancing routines, and more importantly, the art and importance of respect, courtesy, and determination.

I'd like to specifically thank the 5th grade teachers who, with Mr. John, our dance instructor, dedicated a lot of time and energy to help make this year a success for our 5th grade dancers. Thank you also to the other teachers and students that made their way to Todd Beamer high school on Saturday to witness our students take home gold. It was a great day and an amazing event.

If you get a chance, congratulate our students and teachers on a job well done.

Great job... Go Sunrise Eagles!
