Funding Our Future!

At the April Sunnyside Unified School District Governing Board meeting, The Sunnyside Foundation was recognized “for your extraordinary support of our health services programs.

This was recognition for our support of Nurses’ offices district wide in providing Back to Basics grants ($250.00 maximum) for purchase of Nutritional Snacks for intervention in diabetic episodes suffered by student’s with diabetes throughout the district.  Expansion of this concept will include Diabetic Kits for emergency use in classrooms and on school buses.  During the past 2 years, The Foundation has funded over six thousand dollars in Back to Basics, Emergency/Flexible funding grants.
