FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Three Sunnyside Unified Educators Receive Top Honor TUCSON, AZ. October 23, 2019 — Three Sunnyside Unified School District (SUSD) teachers have been named 2019 Raytheon Leaders in Education. The awards honor exceptional K-12 teachers in Pima County who demonstrate excellence in teaching, leadership and support for their peers. “This honor is a direct reflection of the significant work being done in Sunnyside classrooms. Our honorees represent the many exceptional educators in our district who are dedicated to ensuring that our students receive the very best educational experiences,” said SUSD Superintendent Steve Holmes. Winners include Zachary Kadera, 3rd grade teacher at Elvira Elementary, Jacki Nichols, 6th-8th grade teacher at Billy Lane Lauffer Middle School and Larissa Peru, 11th-12th grade teacher at Desert View High School. Steve Holmes said, “We are so proud of these amazing professionals. I commend each of them for their commitment to ensuring that every student they make contact with is equipped with the tools necessary to be successful and make a difference in our community." This is the fourth year Tucson Values Teachers coordinates this celebration of education champions. Raytheon will award the winners $5,000 in gifts – half of which they keep for themselves and the other half goes to their respective school. All winners will be honored at the Stand Up 4 Teachers celebration on November 7, 2019 at Loews Ventana Canyon at 5:30 pm.

A Message from our Superintendent As I addressed our outgoing senior class on graduation night, I found myself looking back-and-forth between the faces of our graduates and their younger siblings in the audience with a mix of nostalgia and disbelief. In the blink of an eye—our elementary students became middle schoolers, only to finish high school right in front of our eyes. I think about this through line each day I come to work. I returned to the District that raised me because of a deep sense of responsibility and a need to give back. I’m guessing many of you flipping through this magazine are graduates of the District or have a connection to one of our nearly 2,000 employees. I’m even willing to guess that many of you are serving our District as teachers, bus drivers, librarians, cafeteria staff, or as volunteers. Like Raytheon, Intuit, Pima County and other large employers in our backyard, Sunnyside is investing in its people, because together we create economic prosperity. We’ve redesigned the high school experience through our College and Career Academies; we’ve stayed the course, thanks to a Coherence Framework focused on enhancing the relationship between the student and teacher in the presence of the work; we’ve launched a Graduate Profile to drive our strategic plan; and we’ve invested millions in Bond Projects, thanks to taxpayers who trust us as good stewards of public dollars. As I enter my fifth year as Superintendent it’s become clearer to me that our District plays a critical role in creating better communities. So as you learn about our work over the last year, I invite you to imagine Sunnyside as a destination District where together we invest in our students and our people. Sincerely, Steve Holmes Superintendent Click here for a Spanish version of our Generations Magazine. Printed copies in Spanish are also available at any SUSD school.  
UA SAID "YES!" 135 Sunnyside High School Seniors received their acceptance letters to The University of Arizona this morning at a surprise assembly. Special guests Dr. Kasey Urquidez, Dean of UA Undergraduate Admissions and Blue Devil Alumni and now UA Freshman, Patrick Robles, helped us deliver the exciting news to students and their families. Congratulations Class of 2020!! 
The Sunnyside Alumni Association will host the 2019 Hall of Fame dinner. This year's event will take place on November 16th at Gallego Intermediate Fine Arts Magnet School at 5:00 p.m. The annual dinner is the signature fundraiser for the Alumni Association/Dollars for Scholars, which last year awarded close to $70,000 in college scholarships to graduates from Sunnyside, Desert View and Star Academic High School.  The Hall of Fame awards were established to honor individuals or groups who have made notable contributions to the Sunnyside educational system, the community, or their chosen profession. The awards also honor those who have exhibited leadership and innovations that have contributed to academic success and the quality of life for the Sunnyside community. Congratulations to the 2019 Sunnyside Alumni Association Hall of Fame Inductees:  Pam Betten Debbie Dimmett Fred Hambly Rudy McCormick Chris Suarez Sgt. Wil Corrales

Our Vision: Every child... College, Career and Community Ready. Our Mission: Our mission is to develop students with a strong sense of identity, purpose and agency, so that they leave our system as effective learners who act with purpose to achieve the conditions they desire in their own and others’ lives. Since the release of the 1983 report “A Nation at Risk” our public school systems have been challenged with the task of improving public perception regarding how we prepare students for the future. This issue of a quality of education was compounded with the accountability requirements under the No Child Left Behind of 2001, which focused primarily on one assessment.  This narrow focus on one metric as the definitive measure of school quality misrepresents the complexity of educating students and diminishes the great work of educators across this nation who make a difference in the lives of students every day, in every classroom. And though aggregate performance is a key variable for measuring success, it simply fails to tell a bigger picture of what our students have and will be able to do in the future.  For this reason we felt it critical to recast our PROFILE OF A GRADUATE within a broader narrative of student success. This new framework provides an unparalleled level of clarity that aligns our mission, vision, and the work.  This new iteration of our graduate profile picks up where our Strategic Plan left off in 2015 and drives the work forward through five competencies, key to each student’s journey towards graduation: 1). Knowledge for Learning, 2). Knowledge for Impact, 3). Creative Confidence, 4). Critical Consciousness, and 5). Self and Systems Awareness.  In addition to college and career readiness, Community Ready was added to this iteration of the work thanks to feedback we received from community members, as well as industry and higher education professionals who expressed certain intangibles that Sunnyside students brought to their organizations. Attributing to our students traits like, “community-minded”, “a sense of social justice”, “respectfulness” we felt strongly that Community Ready also provided us with a framework to bridge the gap between knowledge and agency. This framework allows our District to capture the summative experiences that mark each child’s learning journey so that personalizing the classroom is less about technology, and more about each student’s ecology.  Thank you for being a part of our journey.      COMPETENCY #1: KNOWLEDGE FOR LEARNING Our students are knowledge creators. We look to them to not only master the content, but also to transfer knowledge across disciplines: From science to the humanities, from mathematics to the social sciences—Sunnyside students are deep thinkers and well-rounded learners with a strong sense of academic identity.  We trust our students as knowledge co-creators who share their expertise with peers and teachers as part of an intentional process of collaboration. Sunnyside students understand that learning is a social and shared responsibility. By listening respectfully, students value learning from one another as they begin to develop transferable skills like responding positively and constructively, which are important skills to employers as they are assembling their teams.   COMPETENCY #2: KNOWLEDGE FOR IMPACT When Hurricane Harvey crippled the Texas coast in 2018, Sunnyside students in our JTED Construction program rolled up their sleeves, gave up their spring break, and traveled across the country to rebuild homes. When faced with the opportunity to speak at the state capitol demanding an increase in teacher pay, one Sunnyside student took to the microphone, took a deep breath and pumped up a crowd of tens of thousands.    Our students are engaged participants in their future, not merely bystanders. Equipped with deep knowledge of history and a sense of what is fair, our students are adept at using social media and student organizations to drive change. Sunnyside students are aware of community issues and possess real-world knowledge gained from internships and other experiences that put global issues into a local context.   COMPETENCY #3: CREATIVE CONFIDENCE All students are creative, and it’s our responsibility to nurture that creativity. Borrowing from the work of Tom and David Kelley (IDEO, Stanford d.School) we define creative confidence as the natural human ability to come up with great ideas and the courage to act on those ideas.  Sunnyside students take part in human-centric experiences that use empathy, systems thinking, and design thinking to unlock their creativity. Through building prototypes, using causal loops, challenging assumptions, and acknowledging that all ideas are worthy, our students learn how to take risks. More importantly, creative confidence relies on human collaboration, which is embodied in the performing arts. Sunnyside's tradition of excellence in the fine arts provides a first point of entry for students into a world of creativity that gives them opportunities to gain confidence and succeed.    COMPETENCY #4: CRITICAL CONSCIOUSNESS Workplaces, schools and colleges, and other social environments are defined by internal cultures and norms that are not always visible from the outside. Some environments are built to nurture and empower, while other systems have internal cultures that hinder upward mobility. This is why we give students the tools to identify systems that perpetuate inequality so they’re prepared to take action.  In collaboration with League of Women Voters of Greater Tucson and the YWCA Southern Arizona we host workshops that help high school students learn about running for office while deconstructing issues such as racism, discrimination, and LGBTQ rights. Fostering critical consciousness through debate empowers our students to keep up with important issues and to demand a seat at the table.    COMPETENCY #5: SELF AND SOCIAL AWARENESS Students who are self-aware have strong intrapersonal skills such as self-regulation, which develops in the early years and aids in problem solving and supports volitional behavior. Social awareness (or social intelligence) is part of an important skill set that, later in life, is what sets a transformational leader apart from an everyday boss. This profile of a graduate takes into account our students’ social and emotional development and values traits such as assertiveness, conflict resolution, positive self-talk (to name a few)—as important indicators—of self- and social awareness, which is key to our students’ ability to thrive after high school.   NEXT STEPS 1. Create a graphic representation of the Graduate Profile 2. Introduce the Graduate Profile at the 2018 Administrative Summit 3. Develop indicators for each of the Graduate Profile competency areas 4. Establish a continuum or rubrics by grade band for each indicator that will be used to support internal accountability metrics with the desired outcome of establishing our own school label system    
TEENAGE PARENT PROGRAM SUNNYSIDE INFANT CENTER Sunnyside High School 1725 E. Bilby Road Tucson, Arizona 85706 520-545-5355 Philosophy The Sunnyside Infant Center is set up for the convenience of parenting students enrolled in the Sunnyside Unified School District. We believe that an important function of the center is to provide seNices, support, and quality care for the infants of teen parents while they attend school. We strive to establish an atmosphere in which infants are safe to explore their environment, and provide daily experiences in all areas of development, including gross motor, fine motor, sensory, social, emotional and intellectual development. We use the Arizona Infant Toddler Developmental Guidelines as a guide for lesson planning. Hours of Operation The Sunnyside Infant Center is open from 6:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday. We are open each day that school is in session. As a parent, you have access to the center any time it is open. The center does not provide transportation. Administration The Sunnyside Infant Center is regulated by the Arizona Department of Health Services and is a child care center within the Teenage Parent Program in the Sunnyside Unified School District #12, located on the campus of Sunnyside High School. The center is covered by liability insurance as required by the Arizona Department of Health Services. Inspection reports are located on site and available upon request. Enrollment Information Eligibility - Infants 2 weeks to one year of age are eligible for enrollment. If the infant is walking when he/she turns 1 year old, their last day of enrollment in the center will be the Friday of that week. If the infant is not yet walking when they turn 1 year old, they will remain enrolled until they are "steady on their feet." This means they can take several steps without falling down or holding onto anything, and/or can stand unassisted from a sitting position. However, if the one-year-old presents a safety issue for the younger infants, your child's enrollment will need to be evaluated. Infants of mothers and fathers in the TAPP program are eligible for enrollment as well as district staff, faculty, and the local community, space providing. DES is accepted. The Sunnyside Infant Center does not take drop-ins. The special needs of any infant will be evaluated on a case by case basis.  Fees - $39.00 per full day (6 hours or more) and $28.00 per part day (less than 6 hours). There is a non-refundable $30.00 fee at the time of registration.
