I am reaching out this afternoon to share with you some bittersweet news. Friday afternoon I shared with Ridgeview staff that I have accepted another administrative position nearby at Eugene Christian School. This was a difficult decision as I have thoroughly enjoyed my years at Ridgeview with your students and this amazing staff.
I want you to know that I will be completing the school year here at Ridgeview and will provide insight into what a special community this school and its families are as the district identifies how the position will be filled. What I can tell you is that we are already putting together a great team to help choose the next principal to lead this amazing school.
I have been so fortunate to work with many of you and your students throughout these last three years. Much of what I have learned in this school will serve as a guide as I move into the future, and I will always be thankful to you for that. I will do my best over the next eight weeks to make sure the transition goes well for staff and students and that we are set up for success for next school year.
Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or input that may help guide the selection of the next principal of Ridgeview Elementary. Thank you again for sharing your students with me during the past three years. This is a very special community.
Once a Skyhawk, always a Skyhawk!
