    Sunflower could be better. The bullying needs to be controlled and when a child goes and tells a teacher they are being bullied.....they need to take it seriously and not just tell them to "Quit being a tattle tail!!"

    I have the pleasure of sending my daughters to Sunflower Elementary. I would like for everyone to know how Great this school is!The staff are wonderful and caring. The staff works well with the children and the parents and always have time if you have a concern for your child. In my eyes they have gone above and beyond to assist my children. They have the students interest at heart. Thank you staff and especially all those who touch our children's mind and heart.
