News from Dr. Cruz: Happy Thanksgiving!

Team AISD,

Thanksgiving is a time that is dedicated to gratitude, but I am thankful for you all year long.

The Austin ISD team builds brighter futures for our students and our community. From the people who work in classrooms and on campuses to those who are behind the scenes, each one of you plays a critical role in helping students succeed.

We've accomplished great things together this year, and that strong momentum is continuing. Innovative ideas are brewing throughout our district, and when we face challenges, we meet them with resiliency and camaraderie

As you spend time with friends or family next week, know that you are a valued part of our team.

Thank you for putting your heart into this work. I hope you have a restful and relaxing holiday!

Paul Cruz, Ph.D.
