Sunburst had a very special visitor today: Mrs. Gray - the principal of Desert Foothills Junior High. She talked with all sixth grade classes about the exciting opportunities that DF has to offer. This will be the first step in our 6th grade students transition to middle school. She also got a chance to meet some of our youngest Blazers/future Scorpions and see learning in action.

Want to know more about DF? Check out their Facebook to see a snapshot of their academics, clubs, sports, and more! Click on the school tag above to visit their FB page.
