Dear Shenandoah Elementary!

Hello – Welcome to the 2020 – 2021 school year! My name is Mrs. Rivero and I am the newly assigned Principal of Shenandoah Elementary (SES!) I am thrilled to welcome you back to school even though this year we are not physically together, I want you all to know that we are all here for you. It is truly an honor for me to be the new Principal of Shenandoah Elementary (SES). I feel privileged to work with such motivated and compassionate teachers to make this a smooth transition for our students during this uncertain time.

Throughout my years as an Assistant Principal, I have learned that the best school’s value positive and caring relationships as a foundation for learning. At SES, our highly skilled teachers promote positive student-teacher relationships for student academic success. Even though this school year, we will begin a bit differently, please know that we are all here for our students and families. Virtual learning does not mean that we can’t create positive relationships, it just means we will have to work together! Our teachers and staff members will be available for all students and families alike.

As the new educational leader of Shenandoah Elementary, I value student learning and mental health. It is important that students feel welcomed and loved, but with the same token, I expect students to be challenged so they can achieve academic and social success. It is the goal of the SES community to encourage students to perform to their maximum potential, and exhibit school pride. I hope you become involved in the total school program and take advantage of all Shenandoah Elementary has to offer you.
It is my pleasure to serve this wonderful school community and I look forward to working with students, teachers, and SES families to provide a high-quality learning experience. I encourage families to stay connected and informed by visiting our new SES website and follow our social media platforms, for important update information.

Be the Energy you want to Attract!

Mrs. Maria Rivero
Principal
