Patricia Dienz Leaving Pueblo [Updated]

It was announced on Monday, March 1st that Carlos Armendariz would serve as interim Principal until the end of the school year. Mr. Armendariz is the Assistant Principal for Activities.

Letter From Mrs. Dienz to Pueblo Families:

Dear Pueblo Families,

I am writing to share some news about myself and about Pueblo. On Tuesday, February 9, I was named as the new Director of High Schools for Tucson Unified School District. I am very excited about this new opportunity to work, not only with Pueblo, but with all of our other TUSD high schools. But, I am also very sad to leave Pueblo and I want all of you to know how much I have loved working with all of you and your wonderful children.

Just to fill you in on the past few days, on Wednesday I announced my appointment to the director position to our faculty and staff, and then to your children on Thursday, and I am again speaking to them via our television station today. Your children’s response to my announcement has been overwhelming. They have shown me such great support and affection and have brought me to tears many times in the last couple of days.

Beginning on February 15, Mr. Michael Beck, Assistant Principal for Security and Student Services, will be my designee until the arrival of the interim principal, Dr. Lorraine Richardson. Dr. Richardson will begin on February 22nd. Some of you may be familiar with Dr. Richardson as she was principal of Pueblo for 8 years, retiring from our school in 2002.

As I leave Pueblo, I know I leave your children in good hands. Our faculty and staff care deeply for your children and I know they will carry on in their work to lead your children to even greater success. I will return for the graduation of the Class of 2010 and will take great joy with you, as we watch them cross the stage to receive their diploma.

Thank you for all you have done to support your children and Pueblo!

Patricia J. Dienz

  2. Wow… I am so proud of you Mrs. Dienz I have the best memories of you. It has been about 4 years now since this happened, but I remember the day that I told you I got into ASU and the Cronkite School and how my parents surprised me and that you were so touched that you got teary eyed. It meant so much to have a principal who cared and who was so supportive of me and my goals. I would like to thank you for everything you did for me and wish you luck in your new position. I know you will do an amazing job.
