Please take a moment to congratulate our Star Teacher and Pride of Sunnyside honorees. Click here for more images from the event. 

The annual event was created to recognize the valuable contributions of teachers and staff. Schools select a Star Teacher and one out-of-classroom employee to represent
the Pride of Sunnyside. They are honored as they reflect the finest qualities: Caring, knowledge, enthusiasm and passion for excellence in serving our students, families and colleagues. 

We look forward to celebrating them in our schools and across the District. Individuals will be honored for their contributions to our learning community at a breakfast ceremony on
Wednesday, August 29, 2018 at Desert View High School.
