• Class of 2020:

    Congratulations! On behalf of the Gilbert Unified School District Governing Board, it is a distinct privilege to express our best wishes for a bright and successful future. None of us expected to bid you farewell without the usual ceremony and fanfare that has regaled so many graduates before you. Our hearts ache for you but you have proven to the world that you are creative, driven, tenacious, and resourceful. Your ability to persevere in spite of seemingly insurmountable challenges has set you apart from scores of graduates who have attended Gilbert Public Schools.

    You, the Class of 2020, fill us with hope and optimism that our future will be in good hands. You are the leaders, educators, doctors, lawyers, scientists, inventors, entrepreneurs, technicians, engineers, journalists, architects, and artists who will move us forward.  You will excel in jobs and professions that are yet to be created. As you assume your place in the community, the state, the country, and the world, we are encouraged that you will transform our society into one that is inclusive, prosperous, safe, healthy, and strong.

    We wish you only the best as you begin the next chapter of your life. We have appreciated the opportunity to make a contribution to your academic development and growth. Our final thought for the journey ahead is this:

    “Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop the picture.  Do not build up obstacles in your imagination. Do not be awestruck by other people and try to copy them. Nobody can be you as efficiently as you can.” – Norman Vincent Peale

    Again, Congratulations Class of 2020! You have met the challenge and conquered!  

    With Warm Regards,

    Gilbert Unified School District Governing Board
    J. Charles Santa Cruz, Ed.D., Governing Board President
    Lori Wood, Governing Board Clerk
    Reed Carr, Board Member
    Jill Humpherys, Board Member
