Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2024-2025 school year!  Riverdale Elementary prides itself with working collaboratively with our parent community to ensure that students are supported academically, emotionally and are provided various opportunities to be college and career bound.  It is my pleasure to be recipient of the Bronze PBIS Implementation Award and to be an AVID certified school by the end of the school year.  I look forward to working with you to continue the great work at Riverdale.

This year we will continue to focus on our District's Goals: Goal 1 Academic Skills + Goal 2 Personal Skills = Goal 3 Lifelong Success!  Our academic program is rigorous, engaging, and aligned to the state standards.   Our amazing teachers use research based strategies to develop students’ critical thinking skills, including the meaningful use of technology in instruction,  learning how to collaborate, and help students develop scholarly habits and motivation. As a staff, we are committed to 21st Century Learning to best prepare students for a successful future. It is also a priority at Riverdale to support the social-emotional well-being of our students and families. 

I look forward to working together with students, staff, and parents to continue providing the best educational experience possible for our students.  Thank you for your continued support of our school and its programs. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the office at (714) 663-6563.
