Principal's Message

Dear Sunnyslope Families,


My name is Chance Whiteman, the proud principal for the Sunnyslope School Eagles! Welcome to the 2019/2020 school year! This is my 5th school year with Sunnyslope and I am excited to continue our journey of academic growth and success with the entire Sunnyslope community!

Sunnyslope School is also a Kids at Hope school that focuses on the whole-child. Simply stated, this means that adults on the Sunnyslope campus believe that all children are capable of success, no exceptions! Sunnyslope School is a National Model for this core belief in success for all kids! In the Kids at Hope ideology, adults are Treasure Hunters, which look for, and find, the hidden treasures that are present in every child on our campus. This school year parents/guardians, families, and our community will continue to be invited to our Four Destination Days. We believe these days will help with the academic, social and emotional growth of all our students. Parents and guardians are also invited to come to campus and be trained in the Kids at Hope philosophy. To find more information about Kids at Hope, please visit

This school year we will also continue our PBIS citizenship program for all students. PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. We believe this framework will help with our school mission of creating lifelong learners and building a successful future for all.

This summer our Meet the Teacher Night will be held on Thursday, August 1, 2019. More information will me mailed to families this summer. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the front office at (602) 347-4300 or email me at Also, please LIKE us on Facebook! Just search Sunnyslope School and look for our logo. Have a great rest of the summer and we will see you soon!
