At Riley, we believe that all students can achieve. Our goal is to provide a journey of exciting educational opportunities for our students, with our highly qualified professional staff. We strive to insure that all children have the opportunity to reach high standards of success. We provide an educational experience at Riley that will allow children to learn in a safe, caring, and understanding environment. This environment will encourage children to be moral citizens, responsible citizens, and life long learners.
One of our goals for this year is to strengthen communication between the home and the school. We encourage you to communicate openly and frequently with teachers. Our teachers have the most knowledge of what goes on in their classes and they are well qualified to address any questions or concerns that may arise. At this time, parents can communicate with a teacher at the school via phone, email and in person at scheduled conferences. We encourage parents to contact teachers to discuss any concerns and clarify information coming home at mutually agreeable meeting times.
Building community confidence is a significant component of being an effective school. We truly appreciate the tremendous parent support at Riley Elementary School. Your participation in our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) will strengthen this partnership and help to build a bridge for a better understanding of students and parent needs. We want parents and community members to visit our school and feel welcome. As parents and guardians, you are the first and most important educator in your child’s life. Your children bring life to our school each day, ready to participate with excitement and eagerness.
It is both a privilege and an honor to have this opportunity to be a partner in the education of your children. I am so proud to be the principal of Riley Elementary School! Please do not hesitate to call me or e-mail me.
Your Partner in Education,
Mr. Leo Whalen
