Mission & Vision

The Mission of kidsfirst at Sunset View is to enrich the educational experiences of the students at Sunset View Elementary through volunteerism and fundraising. Our vision is to create a community that provides the financial and human resources to support learning opportunities that enhance the kindergarten through fourth grade educational experience of every student.

We thrive on the altruistic support of parents, teachers, grandparents, friends and members of the business community who donate their time, talent and treasure. This generosity helps maintain and grow new opportunities for educational programs, technologies and events that directly support students at Sunset View Elementary.



Message from the Chairman & President
As we start another new school year, we couldn’t be more excited about where Sunset View is going.  Led by our wonderful principal, Jamey Jaramillo, we are hoping to make this our best year ever! Our entire team at kidsfirst is dedicated to maintaining the high standards and exceptional results of our predecessors. Last year the kidsfirst team volunteered countless hours in the classroom and on fundraising events.  Our fundraising dollars after expenses raised more than $250,000. We hope to continue that abundance of energetic, spirited, and vivacious volunteerism to truly enrich the educational experiences of our children.
