Camarena Families and Friends,

I like you was horrified by the senseless and cruel death of George Floyd. As your principal and as a member of the black community I am committed to doing what I can to stamp out racism, educate others, and unite our Robogriffin community in love. I believe, we are a member of the human race and we all have the same value and worth. I often recite a poem in my morning messages that reinforces the importance of our connectedness.

No man is an island, no man stands alone, each man’s joy is joy to me, each man’s grief is my own. We need one another, so I will defend each man as my brother, each man as my friend. While I am your principal – Camarena will be NO PLACE for Hate!

Please note that a school calendar is going to the school board and once it is official, I will be notifying families of our start date and details if they are available. If you have any questions or anything I can do to assist you please feel free to send me an email at debra.mclaren@cvesd.org.
