The Sunnyside Unified School District is proud to announce the return of Maestro Roberto Martinez as the new director of Mariachi Los Diablitos de Sunnyside. A graduate of Sunnyside High School, Roberto will roam the halls once again as he begin his contract on July 1, 2018.  Martinez, a Tucson native and renowned master of the vihuela, most recently served as music instructor at the Calmeca Academy of Fine Arts and Dual Language in Chicago and as director of Mariachi curriculum at the Mariachi Heritage Foundation. Like many notable Mariachi performers of the American Southwest, Roberto Martinez traces his roots to Los Changuitos Feos de Tucson and is perhaps best known for his 33 year residency with Mariachi Cobre at Walt Disney World.  Roberto, a graduate of the University of Arizona "is an icon in the Mariachi world,” said Sunnyside Superintendent, Steve Holmes in a recent interview with the Arizona Daily Star's Neto Portillo, Jr. The story, which was published in this morning's Sunday newspaper quickly made the rounds. By midday, the news had made its way back to the Midwest. "My phone has been chiming with 'welcome back home' and other congratulatory wishes. It is an exciting time for all of us," said Martinez over e-mail.  Martinez takes over the program after the sudden passing of Refugio "Cuco" Del Cid, whose memory will be honored on Monday, May 14th at 6:00 p.m. as Sunnyside High School formally dedicates the "Cuco" Del Cid Auditorium.  Can't wait for Roberto to strike up the compás?

The results from Sunnyside’s 2017 AzMERIT scorecard show significant growth in the District’s aggregate math scores. Sunnyside was the only district in Southern Arizona that posted significant increases in math scores from 2016 to 2017 (+7%); and double digit increases from 2015 to 2017 (11%) when compared to TUSD, Amphi, Flowing Wells and Vail. Last year, Sunnyside implemented new math curriculum throughout the district; the bump in test results suggest the District is starting to see early signs of the curriculum taking effect. Whereas other area school districts are showing single digit gains throughout the last three testing years, Sunnyside’s scores suggest that not only the District is experiencing improvement, but that improvement is coming at a rate faster than its peer districts despite flat aggregate English Language Arts (ELA) growth between last year and this year.
