A Message from Dr. Hicks

Dr. Davina Hicks



May 9th, 2022

We are in the last quarter and the final month of this school year! Time has gone by very quickly but before we end the school year, I would like to acknowledge you, Parents and Guardians, for your tremendous support throughout. Special thanks to all Faculty and Staff persons during this Teacher Appreciation week—we thank you for the selfless sacrifice you offer to the students and parents of Sonshine each day. My heart is full of gratitude for ALL that the Lord has wonderfully orchestrated to bring this school year to a successful close—thank you all for extending me your kind cooperation as your Superintendent over the course of this school year. I pray that the Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you His peace (Numbers 6:24-26).
