Thank you for visiting the Sunrise Elementary website. We are so happy to have you and your students at our school. My name is Robyn Elswood and I am the principal here at Sunrise. The 2020-21 school year celebrates my 24th year in education. Most of that has been in the K-6 setting. I love working with and supporting elementary students. They truly are our foundation for a better and brighter future generation.

I believe that all students can learn at high levels. Everything we do at Sunrise Elementary supports that mission.

My Door is always open. If you have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached by phone at (208)357-7688 or at my email address


Information for Parents

The concept of MINDSET has proven to be indeed a valuable one to understand so that quite possibly we can work on changing some of those fixed mindsets within our children to GROWTH mindsets. There are a number of books available through bookstores and of course online. If interested in learning more about growth mindset check out Mindset by Carol Dweck.
