• May 2023

    As we begin Staff Appreciation Week from May 8-12, 2023, I wanted to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude and admiration for the incredible work each member of our staff contributes to our district each day. All staff, including clerical, transportation, maintenance, facilities, educators, nutrition, business, paraeducators and more are the backbone of RJUHSD. With your dedication, passion, and commitment to our students, we continue to fulfill our mission of igniting innovative and meaningful learning, inspiring powerful impact in our communities, and preparing all students for multiple paths to success.

    I am incredibly proud to work alongside such a committed and passionate group of educators and staff. Beyond your incredible work ethic and adaptability, what truly sets you apart is your unwavering dedication to our students. Day in and day out, you pour your heart and soul into your work, seeking to inspire and guide our students towards a brighter future. You are the ones who see the potential in every student, who go the extra mile to provide support and encouragement, and who create a safe and nurturing environment where our students can thrive.

    So, on behalf of the entire RJUHSD, thank you. Thank you for your tireless efforts, your passion for teaching, and your tenacious commitment to our students. Your work does not go unnoticed, and your impact on our community is immeasurable.

    As we celebrate Staff Appreciation Week, Raley’s and Bel Air have generously offered our staff 50% off all their hot or iced coffee and teas, any size, Monday-Friday, May 8-12 at participating locations*, just by showing your RJUHSD identification. In addition, the District has allocated additional funds for each site and department to recognize and celebrate your incredible work and dedication to our community.

    I hope you take a moment to reflect on the incredible work that you do, and the lives that you impact every day. You are truly heroes, and I feel honored and privileged to work alongside you.
