    Mr. Jimmy Bruhl, School Principal

    June 10, 2020

    Dear Santiago Family and Friends,

    I would like to take this opportunity to let you know that I will be leaving my position at Santiago and will be continuing my administrative tenure in SAUSD at Carver Elementary School.  I am currently working side by side with your new site leader, Mrs. Kimberly Ahvari, to ensure that we experience a smooth transition this new upcoming year.

    I would like all of you to know that working alongside you was very rewarding and I really appreciate all the help you have extended to me these last two years.  I would like to thank each of you for every experience shared, and the good memories made. I will miss the many events we experienced together, conversations had with you, and for the ongoing support you provide to Santiago Elementary School.

    As you enjoy your moments at home with your loved ones, I ask that you extend my thanks and best wishes to your wonderful Santiago Student(s).  As I depart, I am continuing to encourage Santiago teachers to remember their “Why”.  Why they chose a profession in education, and reminding them not forget the Human Element in their daily routine to ensure that students feel:

    • Loved
    • Respected
    • Sheltered
    • Appreciated
    • Connected
    • at Home

    To our Santiago Scholars:

    Remember that whatever we face in the future, we must face it head on and together.  Remember that you are not alone.  Remember our motto “We Care”.  Stay the course in a direction of progress as a Santiago Scholar and as an important member of our community. 

    Remember to continue your level of involvement:

    • Get connected
    • Be creative
    • Be innovative
    • Be giving
    • Be kind
    • Be extraordinary
    • Have empathy for others
    • Live life happy and to the fullest

    Remember that difficult times come and go, and should never hinder you nor stop you from reaching your goals in life.  What’s most important is that you continue to make the right choices and stay healthy.  We will have an opportunity to see each other once again.

    In short words, I challenge you to make it your mission to always strive to become the best person imaginable.  Finally, I will leave you with this inspirational quote written by Eleanor Roosevelt.

    “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”

    ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

    Never forget that WE, as Santiago Scholars, are always READY, RESPONSIBLE, and RESPECTFUL!

    Once again, I thank you all for the wonderful memories you gave me during my administrative years at Santiago Elementary School.
