It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to an exciting school year at Charles E. Riley Elementary School (CER). We have a fun filled year of learning ahead of us, where students continue to learn, grow, and get back to school as we know it.

As the Principal of CER I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school community with amazing teachers, staff, and students! Our goal is to work together as partners to provide students with a rich learning environment. At CER, we pride ourselves on the strong home-school relationship that has been a tradition over many years.  Student success is attributed to the partnership and the relationships we build within our community.

My hope is that all children will LOVE school.  We will continue to nurture a learning environment that is positive, safe, caring, as well as an enjoyable place to learn and grow.

As I begin my last year here at Charles E. Riley School, it is important to me that everyone who walks through our doors--- teachers, students, parents, and staff---feel welcome! I look forward to 2022-2023 school year and the activities we have planned. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.
