Dear Ánimo Leadership Families,

I am pleased to be serving as the next principal of Ánimo Leadership Charter High School.  I am thrilled to serve our community in a greater capacity and to continue the great work of all of the past and present teachers and leaders here at Ánimo. I have been a member of the Green Dot and Ánimo community since 2007, when I joined the staff of Ánimo Pat Brown as an English, ESL and History teacher.  I taught a variety of classes at all grade levels for eight years, before becoming an assistant principal for Ánimo Leadership five years ago.

Although I am new to the role, the mission and focus of Ánimo Leadership will remain the same.  We will continue to operate a safe campus and provide rigorous instruction to ensure that all of our students are prepared for college, leadership, and life.  Year after year, our students continue to raise the bar for academic achievement.  I look forward to continuing to share in your pride of their successes.

I also wish to acknowledge and thank Dr. Alyce Prentice, who led this school for the past five years.  She has been a great mentor and educator.  Although she has transitioned out of the role as principal, we can continue to count on her as a part of the Aztec family, since she will serve as our area superintendent for the 2017-2018 school year.

I have enjoyed meeting and speaking with many of you, the parents and families of Ánimo, over the past five years.  I look forward to getting to know even more of you in the future.  Please join me at any of the upcoming parent events at school.  I look forward to hearing about your hopes and needs for our students and community.

 

Sincerely,

Catherine Perez-Morales, Principal

Estimadas familias de Ánimo Leadership,

Tengo el placer de servir como la próxima directora de Ánimo Leadership Charter High School. Estoy encantada de servir a nuestra comunidad en una capacidad mayor y de continuar el gran trabajo de todos los maestros y líderes del pasado y del presente en Ánimo. He sido miembro de la comunidad Green Dot y Ánimo desde 2007, cuando me uní la escuela de Ánimo Pat Brown como maestra de inglés, ESL e historia. He enseñado una variedad de clases en todos los grados por ocho años, antes de convertirme en subdirectora para Ánimo Leadership hace cinco años.

Aunque soy nueva en el papel, la misión y el enfoque de Ánimo Leadership seguirá siendo lo mismo. Continuaremos operando una escuela segura con instrucción rigurosa para asegurar que todos nuestros estudiantes estén preparados para el colegio, liderazgo y vida. Año tras año, nuestros estudiantes continúan elevando la barra de logros académicos. Espero seguir participando en su orgullo de sus éxitos.

También deseo agradecer y dar las gracias a la Dra. Alyce Prentice, quien ha dirigido esta escuela durante los últimos cinco años. Ella ha sido una gran mentora y educadora. Aunque ha hecho la transición fuera del papel como directora, podemos seguir contando con ella como parte de la familia azteca, dado que servirá como superintendente de nuestra escuela para el año escolar 2017-2018.

He disfrutado de conocer y hablar con muchos de ustedes, los padres y las familias de Ánimo, durante los últimos cinco años. Espero conocer a aún más de ustedes en el futuro. Por favor, vengan a los próximos eventos para padres en la escuela conmigo. Espero escuchar sus esperanzas y necesidades para nuestros estudiantes y para nuestra comunidad.

 

Sinceramente,

Catherine Perez-Morales, directora
