Future Leadership Changes at Detroit Cristo Rey
 
It is with mixed emotions that I share with you that Joellyn Valgoi, Principal of Detroit Cristo Rey High School, has decided that this will be her last year at our school after several years of dedicated service.  While I am happy for Ms. Valgoi as she enters this next chapter in her life, her presence, which started with the opening of the school back in 2008, will certainly be missed.
 
Ms. Valgoi's willingness to say "yes" to the role of Principal last year, during a time of unprecedented change and challenge, highlights her belief in, and love for, this school, its mission, its students, faculty and staff.  Her passion, hard work and dedication over many years has built the very solid foundation the school is currently blessed with.  Her spirit of continuous improvement and methodical planning has proven to be so beneficial.  She has continued to grow and develop a very talented team of passionate, mission driven educators.  Thank you, Ms. Valgoi, for all you do for Detroit Cristo Rey, and your commitment to ensure a smooth, seamless transition!
 
In that same spirit of continuous improvement, we are working with the Cristo Rey Network to ensure a thorough selection process to find the best candidates for this most critical role.  We will look for someone to continue to build on our solid foundation, and further the very positive trajectory of Detroit Cristo Rey.  In the meantime, as we look forward to the next several months, there are many activities that Ms. Valgoi and the entire Detroit Cristo Rey team will remain focused on as we continue our unwavering efforts to make our students COLLEGE READY and CAREER PREPARED.  We will continue to update the community of any major developments as we move forward.
 
¡Viva Cristo Rey!

Dear Parents and Students,
Although there has been no further decision from the Courts regarding the employer mandate on vaccines or testing, we do need to be prepared for whatever the outcome may be.  Therefore, we are requiring that if you are vaccinated you provide a copy of your vaccine card to the Principal's Office as soon as possible, but no later than December 17th.  Pictures of vaccine cards will not be accepted.  If you make the copy, it must be the full card and completely legible.  
 
We recognize that there are sensitivities surrounding this potential mandate. It is in our best interest as a school to be as well-prepared as possible to ensure that we are in compliance with whatever the outcome is.  We truly appreciate your help and support in this effort.
 
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Principal's Office, the CWS Office, or the President.
 
 
Joellyn Valgoi - Principal
Fred Lumpkin - CWS Director

Dear Detroit Cristo Rey Parents, Guardians and Families,

As we begin this Thanksgiving Holiday, I feel very blessed and grateful for you and all the things you do to support and encourage your child to grow and become all that Jesus designed them to be.

We at Detroit Cristo Rey join you in that endeavor knowing you are the first teacher of these beautiful young people.

We have had challenges this year as we have all adjusted to being together in person, but we know this is the way we teach and learn the best. For being together we are grateful.

One of our challenges has been a clear and predictable path for us to communicate with each other.

Working together with our Art Teacher Mrs. Murphy, we have designed a simple and clear image of our communication plan.

The three points of communication will be the Remind App., PowerSchool and Robo Calls for Urgent Information only. Please look over the graphic image and make sure you are connected, with up to date and correct information. This is very important.

This week you will receive information to help you determine if your connections are up to date.

Look for this information either by a letter from your child or a message from Remind App. from Ms. Gudino or Mr. Miller.

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving with your family and friends,

With love and gratitude,

Joellyn Valgoi

Principal Detroit Cristo Rey
