By: Lee Allen, Pima Community College Tisha Cruz graduated from Sunnyside High School in 2015, a career in welding wasn’t on her radar when she graduated. Passionate about sculpture and drawing, she leaned toward a career in art, or maybe healthcare. But when she saw the “gorgeous’’ metalwork sculptures created by family members who worked as welders, she was hooked. When she graduates from Pima, she is going to further her education by getting a degree as a Welding Inspector. “I love knowing that I can make something that will last forever.” Though she’s too young to know about Rosie the Riveter, Tisha Cruz is on her way to the title of Tisha the Welder. She is leaning toward a future in the field of creative arts worked into the world of welding when she graduates next May. “Welding will be the right career choice for me because I’ve watched other family members make businesses and careers out of it,” Cruz said. “I‘m just amazed at what you can create when you combine the science of welding with an artistic flair.” Already employed in the industry as an apprentice welder, and the only woman in the shop creating metalwork for the mining industry, she also finds time to be creative with welding projects for herself like making a new table top. “Pima has treated me well. I’ve learned the world of welding, how to apply it in today’s world, and I’ve earned certificates in four different types of welding processes. I’m hopeful for a career in welding that will allow me time for some artistic expression on the side.”

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    
SCOTTSDALE — The coronation of Sunnyside as a state champion had a rocky start. But less than 30 minutes in, it seemed inevitable. Most did not believe the Blue Devils (24-0-2) would complete an undefeated season and win their first state soccer title, according to coach Casey O’Brien. “It’s a big chip; it is a big chip,” O’Brien said. “It’s not a little chip. Every single day we wake up, and it feels like something goes against us. Our season has been tough. On paper, it looks great. It looks like it was easy; we just cruised through. But absolutely not. The last 365 days have been trying.” It was all worth it Wednesday night at Coronado High School. The top-seeded Blue Devils scored three times in an 11-minute span of the first half and coasted to a 4-0 win over Gilbert Campo Verde for the 5A boys state title. It was Sunnyside’s first win in three trips to the final. “It means a lot to us,” said Fabian Mendoza, who scored the first two goals on Wednesday. “We’ve been working since the beginning of the year. It was our goal to go undefeated and to win a state championship.” With the defending state champion Coyotes (24-2-1) having to pay close attention to big Manuel Quiroz, who is second in the state with 39 goals, the Blue Devils had plenty of other ways to go. Sunnyside’s Fabian Mendoza celebrates his first of two goals. “There were a lot of people who doubted us. But we came together and made everything happen.”   “We all believed in each other,” Mendoza said. “There were a lot of people who doubted us. But we came together and made everything happen.” Seventeen minutes in, Quiroz put the ball on goal, and the rebound was punched in at close range by Mendoza. Less than four minutes later, Quiroz was going up the left wing, drawing Campo Verde goalkeeper Jacob Zimmerman out. Quiroz crossed to Mendoza, again in front of the goal, and Sunnyside led 2-0. In the 28th minute, the Coyotes were whistled for a foul just outside the box on the right side. Adrian Virgen took the free kick from 20 yards out, bending the ball to the right of the wall, and just inside the right post for the third score. Campo Verde didn’t have an answer. The Blue Devils defense did what it had to do, and keeper Jesus Gutierrez turned away the few shots on target. Quiroz got free for a capper in the 75th minute. “I don’t care about the goals, I just care about the win,” Quiroz said. “It’s our first final. We didn’t have any experience being here, but we started playing better toward the end.” The Blue Devils lost in their two other appearances in the state final, losing in the Class 5A-II title match in 2007 and the 4A final in 1992. Third-year coach O’Brien said Sunnyside’s run was not expected.   “Absolutely not,” he said. “I don’t know what our expectations were; maybe people just don’t know what we have down there. Maybe it’s just taken a long time to get it to click, but when you get everybody working in the right direction, we have a fantastic group of kids.” The group started to garner attention throughout the season, becoming nationally ranked by MaxPreps.com. The only blemishes on the season were ties to rival Desert View on Dec. 18 and 4A champion Salpointe Catholic on Jan. 10. “They work harder than I’ve seen anybody work because they wanted it more than anyone else,” O’Brien said. “Once you get them to realize how good they are, and open their eyes, we have a lot more than maybe they anticipated.” Sunnyside used superior passing skills and an aggressive offense to pepper the Coyotes all evening. The Blue Devils were eliminated by Chandler in the quarterfinals of the 6A tournament a year ago and went out in the play-in round a year before that. Campo Verde was in its third straight final, finishing as the runner up in 2017. It lost in the quarterfinals in 2016 Sunnyside completed a 4A-5A boys sweep for Tucson after Salpointe won the 4A title Tuesday night.

On Thursday, February 14th Desert View High School and Sunnyside High School seniors participated in the National Career and Technical Education (CTE) Signing Day at Pima Community College (PCC). This event mirrored the NCAA's National Signing Day for students who commit to playing sports in college, this is a unique opportunity for seniors to be recognized in front of their parents and others. As done with collegiate athletic signings, new students inked their intentions to complete a technical program at Pima Community College. Sunnyside School District had approximately 50 students from each high school scheduled to attend Pima College Signing Day, 16 students signed for study in Manufacturing, and 7 in Administrative Justice. Last year, more than 2,400 students signed commitments nationwide. http://www.tucsonnewsnow.com/video/2019/02/15/pcc-hosts-cte-letters-intent-signing-day/

Sunnyside High School, opened in 1955, is home to 2,400 students in Tucson, AZ. Sunnyside offers a wide variety of extracurricular programs, advanced placement courses, and specialized career and technical training programs. As a part of the Sunnyside Unifed School District, Sunnyside High School is a celebrated historical pillar of the Tucson community.

Sunnyside is fully accredited through the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. It is a comprehensive high school that offers a plethora of rigorous and challenging courses. The foundation of its success is based in its Freshman Academy. This school within a school serves as a foundational environment which prepares incoming 9th graders for their tenure as high school students.

Once students have advanced into the upper grade levels they are invited to join one of three College and Career Academies. Each academy focuses on a career pathway where students can earn college credit, industry certifications and take part in work experiences and internships. This combination of core and elective classes has evolved Sunnyside into a culture of college and career readiness.

Additionally, the use of AVID instructional strategies and ample enrollment in Honors and Advanced Placement courses has propelled graduation rates and record amounts of scholarship offerings. This focus on learning and real world experiences has prepared our students for life after Sunnyside.
