It is my pleasure to serve as the new Principal of the Thomas Richards Elementary School. As we prepare to begin the 2016-2017 school year, I am excited to work with the wonderful TR staff, and welcome back our returning students, as well as our new students. Our staff seeks to create an environment where students feel supported and encouraged. Every student should be able to enjoy coming to school each day to engage in meaningful learning experiences that enable them to grow as learners.
As the Principal, my goal is to support students, parents, teachers and other staff members as they work collaboratively to create a strong culture of learning within our building. It is our goal to ensure that our students walk out of TR each day, not just as better learners, but as better individuals. We understand that if students are to be successful at learning, they must feel safe, cared for, and supported in their daily interactions. We will work every day to create a positive environment where students are able to grow socially, emotionally, and academically.
Everyone who serves in the life of a child has a very important role. Here at TR, our teachers, support staff, administrators, and any others who interact with students on a daily basis strive to create an environment where students can become their best. We also recognize families play an important role as partners in the educational process. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to communicate frequently with staff members, ask questions, and share in the educational journey of your child.
I look forward to working with all of you as we embark on another terrific school year! Any time you have any questions or concerns regarding your child, please do not hesitate to contact me.
