Roberto Cruz Leadership Academy

**Weekly Update** 12/11/20 Vol. 19

Welcome December!


Hi Jaguar Parents and Families!


Thank you for supporting our school and encouraging our students to keep education their number 1 priority! I am thankful as a Principal to have you as our parents re-emphasizing at home the value of an education.


As we are wrapping up our 1st semester, I wanted to let you know that we are in the final stretch of what has been a “challenging” year. Remote Learning has required all of us to approach school and life with a positive attitude. Almost every Jaguar has been able to meet this challenge and has done so with leadership and grace. We are very close to finishing our 1st semester and I want to remind students to FOCUS on what is important right now.


Our Final exams give you an opportunity to demonstrate what you have learned throughout the entire Semester. Please study and prepare in advance to ensure that you are successful. Life is about preparation and perseverance. This will be expected of you as you continue to move forward into higher education. Good Luck and please let me know if you need to talk or chat for any type of support. I am here as your Principal to support you.
