A Message from the Principal

It is with great pride and excitement that I welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year! As the new principal at Riverton Elementary School, I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of educational excellence and community involvement. Along with the faculty and staff at Riverton Elementary School, I commit to continuing the legacy of success by building strong relationships with our students, families, and community partners.


For the 2020-2021 school year, we will focus on the social-emotional well-being of our students, use data to drive instruction while providing consistent implementation of a rigorous and relevant curriculum, and ensure that all students experience personal growth and success.

All of us at Riverton Elementary School are eager and excited to have an amazing year! As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors- students, parents, and teachers – find our school to be an exciting and welcoming place to for children to learn and grow! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, engaging, and nurturing manner. My door is always open, and I value your input and feedback. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any questions or concerns you might have throughout the school year.


I look forward to working with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success!
