Welcome to Charles E. Riley School where we are more than just a school; we are an extension of our students’ families. As principal, I take great pride in the sense of community we have built within our school and the warm, welcoming environment we have created for both current and future families that walk through our doors. My goal, and the goal of my staff, is to provide a safe, supportive and cooperative place of learning for all of our students. An environment where we celebrate our student diversity and develop a climate of respect, while encouraging our students to continuously strive for their personal best. Charles E. Riley students have SWAG, they are:  Students With Awesome Goals!

I am a firm believer that the parents and guardians of our students play an equally important role in every child’s learning experience. I encourage parents and guardians to be active participants in the daily learning activities and school experiences of their children. An open, two-way path of communication is vital to the success of our students.

The faculty and staff of Charles E. Riley Elementary School (CER) are passionate about providing our students with the very best education possible. Our commitment to providing outstanding educational opportunities extends beyond the walls of the classroom, as we work together to ensure all students are “Fully Prepared and Life Ready.”  Our children are the leaders of tomorrow and every moment of learning only makes them stronger!

Our school prides itself in caring for the unique needs of individual students and it is our vision to maintain a safe and enriched learning environment that promotes Self-control, Respect, Organization, and Problem-solving. Teamwork is our strategy for success. We believe that through parents, teachers, students, administrators, and community members working together and supporting one another our student and school will achieve amazing things!

Please know it is our goal to always do what is best for our students at CER. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office at 315-341-2800.

Thank you,
Dr. Linda R. Doty
