Principal's Message

  • Dear Students and Families,

    Welcome to Roadrunner! We are delighted to welcome you to another school year. As a team, we believe that every child can learn and achieve at high levels, and we are committed to providing the best possible educational experience for all of our students. Our teachers and staff members are dedicated to implementing high quality curriculum and instruction, while understanding the unique and individual needs of every student. As educators, we recognize the importance of fostering a positive and joyful learning environment, and our staff members work diligently to develop relationships with children based on trust and mutual respect. We know that the most powerful learning occurs when children feel safe, supported, encouraged, and empowered.

    This school year, we will be implementing positive behavior interventions and supports (PBIS) which is a highly effective framework to build children’s social-emotional-behavioral skills.  We explicitly teach all students how to be respectful, responsible, and be safe through common language, a supportive environment, and positive feedback.  As a staff, we believe in the importance of teaching children more than just academic skills; we teach the importance of teamwork, leadership, kindness, problem solving, and resiliency, recognizing that these “soft skills” contribute to a lifetime of success.      

    We also recognize that, as parents, you are your child’s first and most important teachers. We value your input and involvement in your child’s education. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us and share your thoughts on how we can continue to make Roadrunner an exceptional school for your child. We thank you for your patience and support as we navigate a new start to the school year, and we look forward to your partnership as we help every student to Rise Up, Reach Out, and Achieve More.
