Thank you and goodbye.

Dear Riverside Families, 

Every day I am grateful to be part of a progressive community that wants the best for their children. Today is no different except I am chasing one more dream, and that is to influence our youngest learners as a principal in an elementary school setting.  

I have been named the Principal of Dr. Freda Miller School and will be transitioning to my new role following the Family Day weekend. My last day at Riverside school will be February 15, 2023. This means I will get to celebrate the Science Olympics and pass the torch to the staff to do what they do best, which is providing exceptional care and programming for students. 

Thank you to parents for supporting your children, staff, the science program, and how we come together as a community. Your dedication is immeasurable. Thank you to the staff at Riverside for your love of children and this important work. The way you engage students in deep scientific thinking and respond to the academic, physical, social, and emotional needs of all students is inspiring. To the students, what a privilege to watch you all grow to meet your full potential. Thank you for showing great compassion for one another and for bringing a love of learning.  

Riverside school families make an enormous difference in our community. Thank you for your support in navigating our way back after a health crisis and for working together as a community to build a beautiful path for Truth and Reconciliation. 

Riverside parents and guardians will soon receive a survey from the Area 3 office to gather input about the attributes desired in the next principal, who will be hired to begin the 2023-24 school year. In the interim, an Acting Principal will be assigned for the remainder of the current school year. 

Thank you, with deepest gratitude for the opportunity to be a part of this incredibly special school community.
