Principal's Message

  • Melissa Ortiz

    Dear Sunrise Families,

    It is an honor and privilege to serve as Sunrise Elementary’s principal.  I have had a life-long passion for working with children and feel very grateful for the opportunity to serve in this role.  I have 18 years of experience teaching various grade levels in Osceola County. Additionally, I had the privilege of serving as an assistant principal the last 6 years.

    I am very proud to be the principal of this wonderful school. It is an honor for me to work with our students, our staff, and our families to help us achieve our greatest potential. My aim is to lead our school community to enable us to work together to achieve our goals.

    As your principal, I promise to keep students at the forefront of every decision we make as a school. Your dedication to learning, growth, and support for one another is what makes our school special. I encourage you to continue pushing the boundaries of your potential and explore new avenues of knowledge and personal development. Embrace every challenge as an opportunity to learn, and let your curiosity lead the way. Let’s go Seastars!

    I look forward to an amazing school year! 

    Proud Principal,

    Melissa Ortiz
