A Message from Our Principal

Best High Schools Silver 2013 Award

Dear Parents,

I cannot believe we are almost to the end of the 2013-2014 school year. As I reflect on finishing my third year as principal, I feel so blessed to be part of this high school. In my 22 years in education, I have never been in a district with more supportive parents and caring students. As graduation approaches, I want to thank you for your perseverance in raising your children to be respectful, trustworthy, and hardworking young men and women. Thank you for being dedicated to them, for nurturing them, and for the many sacrifices you have made for them over the past twelve years. Thank you also for allowing me be to be part of their lives as they completed their education at Rio Rico High School. As you enjoy all the festivities of graduation, please take time to remember that you, as parents, have been a very important part of their success.

Thank you for your support.
