|Grants at Work!|
Each year, family and faculty work together to disburse grants to meet students’ educational needs through programs like field trips, artists-in-residence, guest authors, and the Sunrise Garden. Teachers, staff, family members and students may submit grant proposals to the Grants Chair for review by the FFO Executive Board. Executive-approved proposals are discussed and voted on at General FFO Meetings. Visit sunriseffo.org/grants or email email@example.com for info.

On September 29, Sunrise Drive immersion students participated in Chinese Language and Culture Day, an academic competition sponsored by the University of Arizona Confucius Institute.
Led by Ning He, Sunrise Drive’s Chinese Culture and Literacy teacher, four teams of students spent hours practicing to compete with students from other Tucson-area Mandarin immersion programs. Each team performed a five-minute skit and participated in a question and answer session — all entirely in Mandarin! All of the teams placed in the competition. Congratulations to all of the participants!
