From Our Principal



Welcome back to Richland Avenue Elementary, School of Advanced Studies! We hope you are rested and re-energized for the new and exciting 2012-2013 school year.  I am honored to be your new principal and to have the opportunity to serve the Richland community while working alongside such a talented and dedicated staff.

We recognize that parents are our students’ first and best teachers and encourage you to be active partners in the school.  As we strive for academic excellence, we value your partnership and feel that open communication will ensure the success of our children. We have numerous, fun and exciting events planned by our wonderful Booster Club as well as many other opportunities to volunteer. We look forward to strengthening the school/home partnership by getting to know all of you.

Please remember that your child’s daily attendance is critical in his or her academic success. Daily attendance, including arriving on time and remaining at school for the entire day, will result in increased student achievement.

We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to an amazing school year!
