Sunlight has high academic expectations for achievement.
Our instructions are based on Colorado State Standards.  To help our students engage in learning we plan active,
"hands on" lessons as part of our instructional strategies, which help make learning fun! Students will be given
opportunities to extend their learning through activities and projects. We hope to make connections within our
classes so that students will use their learning in meaningful ways.

  1. Treat EVERYONE with respect and courtesy. Be polite.
  2. Be honest. Rather than lie about being late or not having an assignment, tell the truth.
  3. Come to class on time.
  4. Do the assignments for class and meet all deadlines for projects. Be prepared for tests.
  5. If you're absent, arrange to get the homework so that you aren't behind when you return.
  6. Wait to be called on if you have a question. Be aware, however, that your teacher may have other preferences on how to participate or ask questions. Find out!
  7. Participate in class discussions and ask questions. Doing so shows the teacher that you're paying attention and are actively applying the information.
  8. Ask for extra help after or before class (or at some other prearranged time) if you're struggling with a concept or project. Doing so shows the teacher you're aware that you aren't doing as well as you want, that you need help, and that you're taking responsibility by asking for help.
