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
Dear PPS staff and families,
Summer has started, but we want to let you know that the PPS Task Force on the Superintendent Recruitment is continuing to meet on a regular basis and work is happening daily to advance our efforts to find and recruit our next superintendent. We have a final position description and are still actively recruiting candidates. We appreciate the feedback and candidate recommendations we have received from the community to date. Below are highlights of our last meeting. We will keep you informed as we go forward. Thank you.

Dear PPS Families,
Over the summer, crews will be working in schools throughout the district to address health and safety issues, using funds from the bond that voters approved in May. At the same time, planning is under way for bigger projects to rebuild three high schools and a middle school. We wanted to give you an update on what is coming up.
