Mission

Sunnyside offers a developmentally appropriate curriculum, based on the Colorado Academic Standards, to all students in preschool through fifth grade.  Sunnyside strives to make a rewarding impact in each child's life by ensuring they all reach their highest potential.  Here at Sunnyside, we believe that the improved academic achievement of each student is a shared responsibility among all the adults in the child's life and the child.  By working together, we provide our students with a strong foundation for success.

Principal's Message

Wishing You a Safe & Happy Holiday Season!

Dear Sunnyside Families, Like many of you, in November I find myself contemplating the many things I am grateful for. This year, in addition to moving to Durango and starting a new life with my family, I am so grateful to have joined the Sunnyside community. Over the past few weeks, I have found Sunnyside’s members to be a dedicated, positive group of people who truly want a successful, effective school. So please feel free to stop by and discuss your vision for the school. If you have any observations, concerns, ideas, or insights, I would love to hear from you. Sincerely, Anita Walker - Sunnyside Elementary Principal
