Welcome Message from Principal Suppes,

As the new principal of Guernsey-Sunrise schools for the 2016-17 school year, I would like to officially welcome you to our school and the beginning of an “Excellent” school year.

I am humbled by this opportunity and look forward to serving the students, staff, school, and district. I am excited to meet each and everyone one of you. If you have the time please swing by and visit. As an active member of the community, it is my goal to maintain our status here as the center of activity and continue to serve as the hub of education in this part of Platte County.

Throughout this school year you will see and hear a single phrase in all that I do. That phrase is “Excellence in Everything. Every Student, Every Day”. This phrase guides my educational decisions and drives my leadership. Aristotle once said:

   “We are what we repeatedly do,

   Excellence therefore is not an act,

   But a Habit.”

I expect all staff and students at Guernsey-Sunrise to be excellent in all that they do, from the classroom to the hallways, the concert hall to the stage, the sports arena and throughout our community. This will mean hard work, and giving one hundred percent, but I truly believe that excellence can be achieved in all that we do in education, and it can be done in positive and engaging ways that bring out the best in us all.

Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or comments, or stop by and visit the school and see firsthand the Excellence of Guernsey-Sunrise schools.
