Dear ChangeMakers Families,
I has been my greatest joy to serve as a founding leader of ChangeMakers Academy! I vividly remember meeting many of you at the Vallejo Community Center over three years ago before we even opened. It was then that I knew what an honor it would be to partner with you all to build a school that provides our students with an excellent education. Due to your partnership, ChangeMakers has become a place where students are cared for, challenged, and empowered to be their best selves social-emotionally and academically. I could not be more proud of all the work our staff, students, and families have put into building a school where students are strong in Heart, Smart, Think, and Act.
It is with this pride and confidence in the community we have built to announce that I, Ms. Yilpet, will not be returning as Co-Principal to ChangeMakers Academy next school year. I have loved every minute of learning and growing alongside our ChangeMakers staff, students, and families. I will deeply miss serving this community. It has been life-changing to build this school with you and I will forever be grateful for this privilege. Thank you for taking the leap of faith to join ChangeMakers Academy. Thank you for trusting us with your most precious gifts - your children. Thank you for the endless love and support you have given me over the years. ChangeMakers Academy has been an absolute dream - thus I will certainly come back to visit as often as I can.
Please know that Mrs. Weingarten and the rest of our leadership team will be returning. I will be working to ensure that my transition at the end of the school year is smooth and that our team is set up for success for the next school year. I would love to stay in touch with you and hear about your child's journey in the years to come. If you would like my personal contact information, don't hesitate to ask. I will be around till the last day of school in June.
Again, I thank you, thank you, thank you, for the amazing journey it has been to lead and educate your children!
With Gratitude & Love,
Co-Principal, ChangeMakers Academy
