Sunnyside Fact Sheet

School History

Sunnyside was constructed in 1981 during a time when the District was rapidly growing. The school is located in Sobieski, which is very near to Little Suamico.

During the 1990s, the District saw an increase in students. In 1998, the District passed a referendum to build a new high school allowing the development of the Pulaski Community Middle School. Because of this, all of the elementary schools, including Sunnyside, became a K-5 school.
