Principal's Message

The Ritter staff continually strives to facilitate high levels of academic learning and the social and emotional growth of all students.  We have a wonderful community that is committed to the growth of all learners.  We pride ourselves on being part of a unified community, working hard to ensure the safety and well-being of all children.  You can see this throughout the building with the implementation of our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS).  It is also my hope that we will work TOGETHER to provide the students of Ritter opportunities that prepare them to be world class citizens ready to master the challenges of the 21st century. Parent involvement is a key to a well-rounded learning community.  As parents, you play an integral role in learning. Involvement in your child’s education will help them achieve faster and create a love of learning.  My door is always open and I look forward to getting to know each of you. I am honored to be at Ritter and look forward to serving this incredible community.
