Information from the Principal / Información de la Directora

Dear Rigler families,

With mixed emotions, I’m letting you know that I won’t be returning to Rigler next year, as I will become principal at Whitman school starting July 1st. I have been honored to serve the Rigler community for the past six years and I will forever treasure the memories and relationships we have built together. Have a wonderful summer, I'll be thinking of you.

Queridas familias de Rigler,

Me gustaría compartir con ustedes que no regresaré a Rigler el próximo curso escolar ya que empiezo mi puesto como directora en Whitman el 1 de julio. Ha sido un honor servir a la comunidad de Rigler durante estos seis años, y les agradezco las memorias y amistades que hemos construido juntos. Que tengan un buen verano, estaré pensando en ustedes.

Ruth Tucker
Asst. Principal 2013-2015
