Principal's Message

  • Ryan Atwood, PrincipalGreetings Falcon Family,

    I am excited for the opportunity to serve the Sunrise Middle School community.  For the past six years, I served as an Assistant Principal at Deerfield Beach Middle and prior to that, I taught Language Arts at Millennium Middle School for seven years.  I am originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, where I attended Grand Valley State University. My wife Tamara and I have made South Florida our home for the past thirteen years and we have been blessed with two beautiful daughters, Sara and Madison.
    I am committed to serve the Sunrise Middle School staff, families and community and I look forward to meeting each of you.  Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any concerns or if you are in need anything.  I encourage you to take an active role in our School Advisory Council (SAC) and to join our Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA).  This year, while it is certainly different than previous years, is an opportunity for our SMS students to thrive in a challenging situation, which will equip them for continued success.   I hope to see you soon!
