Dear New River Families,
My name is Dr. Reanna Mendoza and I am excited to serve as your next principal. In my career, I have served as an elementary school teacher, administrative intern interim principal, technology specialist and principal. I am honored to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced to the New River community. Please allow me to be the first to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year at New River Elementary School - “A Great Place to Be!”. As I have been settling into my new role, I’ve had an opportunity to meet the staff and several parents. It is evident that the New River community takes great pride in the work being done to assist the students in becoming the best versions of themselves. It is my pleasure to be part of this wonderful community. I look forward to working alongside the staff and families to create a secure, safe, productive and highly functioning school environment for our Knights to thrive as they develop academically and socially.
The teaching and support staff are an extremely dedicated group that have already shown a deep commitment to learning. We will be working with the together to ensure all students are taught Common Core State Standards using technology to help students acquire the skills necessary for their future. As we prepare to do so, we understand the importance of partnering with our New River families. For that reason we will be sharing information weekly, monthly and through various social media channels. We hope this will help all families be active in our New River activities.
Having the opportunity to serve as the principal for New River Elementary School is a true honor. I am looking forward to building on the current accomplishments to continuously improve our school environment. I know our Knights deserve the best! With open communication, teamwork and a dedication to the New River community, I'm confident that we will give our Knights the tools they need to succeed as they prepare for college and career.
Reanna Mendoza, Ed. D.
