Arrival time – Please enter the driveway from the upper Moseley Complex entrance (this is a one way). Pull up alongside the fire lane as close to the school as possible (almost up to the playground).

Sensation Station - Once each week the classrooms visit Sensation Station in the Hayward St complex for an hour. This program fosters cooperation, social and emotional development and provides an additional opportunity for the children to work on their small and gross motor skills.
Snack – Sunrise requests that students bring their own snack to school each day (items such as fruits, veggies, yogurt, cheese, muffins, crackers, etc... are recommended). To help teachers and students distinguish what items are for lunch and/or snack, please label accordingly. Or you may wish to have a separate snack pouch along with a lunch box. Sunrise provides fresh fruits and vegetables weekly for the classroom Practical Life activities (i.e., orange juicing, apple cutting, banana cutting, carrot peeling and cutting, etc.)
