Principal Ruiz

Class of 2020!


Congratulations on being the first class ever to be able to have success with Distance Learning.  You have so much to be proud of.  You are the pioneers of Arroyo.  The class with the firsts...first Conga Kids participants, first class for distance learning, first class to be celebrated virtually.  Although I know this is a difficult time for many, it is important to remember that you are in for something greater.  Don’t let what is going on with our current pandemic define you, instead the definition of you will be how you have responded to it. You have shown grace through challenges. Embrace your new responsibilities to how the world has changed. This is a time where parents and families are so important.  Value what they have taught you. Look upon this time as new opportunities for continued learning and growing.  The opportunities are endless.  I wish you the best of luck in middle school and look forward to seeing you walk across the stage as you graduate from High School. Always remember once a Panther, always a Panther. 


Arroyo loves you!
