Dear Rigler Students and Families:
On behalf of the Rigler Elementary School staff, it is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year!
Educating students in its location since 1931, Rigler is a proud learning community, steeped in tradition and excellence.
With a year under my belt as Rigler's Principal, I can now say I've seen and experienced all that makes Rigler the wonderful place it is! To its core, the strength of Rigler is embodied in the dedicated educators who work daily to instill the knowledge and skills that prepare students for all that the 21st century has to offer, and in you, our parent community. We could not do this work without your support.
We expect EXCELLENCE, INNOVATION, EQUITY and COLLABORATION for our students. With a shared vision of education that esteems the needs of the individual learner in an environment of high expectations, we will nurture and challenge your child to THINK (creatively & critically), KNOW (master content), ACT (self-direct & collaborate), and GO (navigate locally & globally). I invite you to join us on this journey!
At Rigler Elementary School, The Road to College starts here!
TJ Fuller, Principal
