  • Principal’s Message

    Dear Students, Staff and Parents:

    Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! River Oaks Middle School is committed to meeting the needs of each individual student. It is our school’s mission to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and experiences that enable them to reach their fullest potential as independent thinkers as well as responsible and productive citizens. High standards and expectations for each student in regards to academic performance, extra-curricular participation, and responsible citizenship are the foundation of our school.

    Our school wide theme for the 2018-19 school year is “Nobody Rises to Low Expectations”. Our three main school goals for the 2018-19 school year is to improve student achievement, improve our climate and to improve parent/community involvement. We are excited to continue implementing STEAM activities in all content to better engage students in the learning process. We are also excited to implement the Capturing Kids Hearts model campus wide to improve our overall school culture.

    River Oaks Middle School is committed to improving and increasing parent/community involvement. It is very important that students, teachers, parents, and administrators communicate openly and frequently concerning the progress of students. Parents count! Come to school, meet us, talk to us, join the PTA and volunteer your time and energy. Let’s work together!

    In conclusion, I wish you all a wonderful school year. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me and know that my door is always open. I am honored to serve as your principal.
