Greetings Parents, Students, and Community members,
The 2015-16 school year is engaging our teachers, support staff, and students in educational activities that foster 21st century learning. Our organization has turned towards the 5Cs; communication, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and caring as we develop basic literacy in reading, writing, math, and technology. Ultimately, our organizational focus aims to help children and staff thrive in the 21st century as learners, citizens, and family members. We look forward to the many activities that are planned for the 2015-16 school year.
Rio aims to help every student develop and sustain a growth mindset that focuses on setting and achieving personal improvement goals as we work together to improve our organization and community. Each child, family, educator and our community are challenged to guide our learners to become passionate, interested, and effective readers, writers, and speakers. These literacy practices are central to student performance in all academics and later in the world of work and career.
We’re excited to serve our students, families, and community in 2015-16 as we bring world class learning opportunities to every child. It is a great time in American public schools, a great time to be a student, and great time to be an educator.
Superintendent – Rio School District – Empowering Learners to Thrive in the 21st Century
