There is much to celebrate this holiday season, and I want to take this opportunity, as the year winds down, to review some of our important accomplishments over the last year and to underscore that even in these difficult budgetary times, we have achieved so much and have so much to be proud of.
I am proud of what we have done and want to thank everyone for her or his hard work this past year in making these accomplishments possible. In the face of the difficult circumstances imposed on us by the State, the Peralta Family – as it always does – has pulled together and given our students their best, and made all of us proud. As we end the year and get ready to ring in 2012, let me point out some of our achievements in 2011 and note the many accomplishments that we have to celebrate this year.
