Welcome​

Dear Parents and Guardians. It is my hope that we will work together to continue to provide the students of Celia Cruz the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be outstanding musicians and academic students. We will continue to prepare all students for success in college and their careers. As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet! !
