Dear Canutillo Familia,

As I reflect on the past year, I find myself filled with immense gratitude and a profound sense of accomplishment. It has been my distinct honor and privilege to serve as the President of our School Board. As my term ends, I want to express my heartfelt thanks to each member of our wonderful community for the trust and confidence you placed in me.

Representing the children and employees of our district has been a responsibility I have cherished, and I am thankful for the opportunity to have been a part of shaping the educational landscape for our students. The journey has been both challenging and rewarding, but it is with great pride that I can say we faced these challenges head-on and emerged stronger and more united than ever. Together, we have accomplished much, and I am deeply grateful for the collective efforts that have made these successes possible.

Serving as your Board President has been a truly fulfilling experience, and I want to extend my sincere appreciation to the entire community for your unwavering support. Your dedication to the betterment of our schools and the well-being of our students has been a driving force, and I am confident that, with continued collaboration, we will overcome any obstacles that lie ahead.

As I transition from the role of President, I am excited to announce that Armando Rodriguez will be stepping into this leadership position. Armando has been a valuable member of our Board, and I am confident that his passion, dedication, and skills will translate into numerous successes for both the Board and our district. I have complete faith that under Armando's leadership, the Board will continue to thrive and achieve new heights. I extend my heartfelt congratulations to Armando and wish him the very best in this important role.

While my term as President concludes, my commitment to serving our community remains steadfast. I will continue to be an active member of the Board, and you can be assured that I am ready to roll up my sleeves and continue the important work that lies ahead. The challenges in education are ever-evolving, but with the support of this incredible community, I am confident that we will navigate these waters successfully.

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to each and every one of you. Our community's strength lies in its unity and resilience, and I am thankful for the collaborative spirit that defines us. May this Thanksgiving be a time of joy, reflection, and shared moments with loved ones. I extend my warmest wishes to you and your families for a happy and fulfilling Thanksgiving.

Thank you once again for the honor of serving as your Board President. Together, we have achieved much, and I am excited about the bright future that lies ahead for our community and our schools.

¡Un fuerte abrazo!
