Marcel Dean ends remarkable Cholla High School career

Cholla Basketball (copy)

Cholla's coach Masai Dean, above, is 143-52 in seven seasons, while his son Marcel has 1,314 career points to help the Chargers to an 81-24 record in his own high school career.

When UCLA was in Tucson a week ago, the Bruins’ top recruiter, David Grace, went to Salpointe Catholic High School to evaluate sophomore point guard Evan Nelson, who is popping up on the recruiting radar of top-25 teams.

But because Nelson missed the first half of the Lancers’ season, gaining eligibility after a transfer from Mountain View, the player-of-the-year race in Tucson might be a one-man contest: Cholla senior point guard Marcel Dean.

Dean completed his high school career last week with a 21-point scoring average. More importantly, he helped the Chargers to an 81-24 record in his high school career, scoring 1,314 points.

A better story might be that he played for his father, Cholla coach Masai Dean, who has gone 143-52 in just seven seasons, establishing Cholla as one of Southern Arizona’s leading basketball schools.

Cholla Students Take Charge Over the Weekend!

On Saturday, 8 Cholla students competed at the National History Day regional competition in Chandler. Two students, Rosie Melendez and Alyssa Ochoa, won for their project: an excellent, well-researched website on the changing status of women's rights in Afghanistan. They will represent Cholla at the Arizona state competition.

This weekend the Law and Public Safety CTSO went to Regional Competition where we competed against other Law and Public Safety CTSO’s from Marana, JTED, Walden Grove, and Rio Rico.


There were two different categories for competition- Crime Scene Investigation and Criminal Justice. Cholla competed in the Criminal Justice portion which consisted of traffic stops, field interviews, and an oral board.


Nina Soto won 2nd place for the entire Criminal Justice portion of the competition and was only 1 point away from 1st place. If you have her in class, please congratulate her on the skills she presented during the competition.

Congratulations CTE Student Roderick Bullock!

The Graphic/Web CTE students are working a series of online design challenges called “Quick Fires”.

Quick Fires are series of industry based graphic design projects that challenge and push the students talents to their limit. VERY STRESSFUL.

The students are given a realistic design scenario and are only given two class periods to complete the project and digitally submit.


*Quick Fire #1 was a logo for a band called “THE CHAOS”.

-8 high schools participate in this online challenge and only the top five designs from each school will get posted on the ADEN (Arizona Design Education Network)website.

-The top five designs from each school get voted on by the public and their peers.

-Votes get tallied and the winning design will be used in the next Quick Fire challenge.



Cholla’s Roderick Bullock won Quick Fire #1

Group 4 Project Another Success!

A huge thank you to our IB Science teachers for the completion of the Group 4 project! 


This is a big undertaking:  Juniors and seniors have to be grouped (mixed with other IB science course students), come up with an experiement to be completed, collect data and observations and then write it up for IB.  They traveled to Sabino Canyon on Saturday to complete their experiments. 


Awesome job Ms. Frazier, Ms. Kalal, Mr. Shafer, Mr. Mitsak and Mr. Martin!
