Job Well Done...Be Safe

What a year! It's amazing to see that the end is actually here. As we bid each other farewell for the summer, I want to leave you with a few closing thoughts. To my students, I love you. I am so honored to be your principal. You have given me so much to smile about. You make me laugh, cry, and beam with pride. I am proud of the work we accomplished together this year.

To my parents, I am so appreciative of you. Thank you for allowing us to pour into the lives of your young people. Thank you for your partnership throughout the year, especially in the final stretch as we worked to continue with learning experiences while social distancing.

As a whole, our RPM family, students, staff, and parents did an exceptional job this year and I am excited about what the future holds. As we begin preparation for the 2020-2021 school year, not knowing what it will look like, one thing is for sure, I look forward to the opportunity to grow through it with each of you.

We are heading into summertime, a time for relaxation and fun; but I also want to encourage you to make wise decisions, and take all necessary precautions to remain safe. Stay tuned for the summer edition of the Parks Press for Parents published monthly, and watch for school year updates on the LancasterISD and RPM school websites.


Proud to be your Parks Principal,


Yvonne M. Thornton, M.Ed.

Parent Survey

Greetings Lancaster ISD Parents and Guardians,


We are making efforts to gather information from parents/guardians as we prepare for the upcoming school year. We believe the voices of our parents/guardians are extremely important. Therefore, we want to make sure your voice counts as we strategize for the upcoming school year.


We are asking all parents/guardians to participate in the following survey. The purpose of this survey is to gather parent/guardian input about online and in-person learning for the 2020-2021 school year. We would like to assess which learning setting you are most comfortable with for your child as we continue to practice social distancing protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will utilize the information as we plan for possible learning options for the upcoming school year to ensure your child’s safety. Thank you in advance for completing the survey.


Please CLICK HERE to complete the Survey. Take care and be well.


If you have already taken the survey, please disregard this message.
