Information from the Principal / Información de la Directora

Our leadership staff has been working hard to revise our Comprehensive Action Plan (CAP). Our CAP plan is what drives Rigler’s day-to-day efforts.  It is my belief that this plan is incomplete if parents and/or the community’s voice is not considered.  Therefore, I have scheduled a meeting to engage the community in a conversation to provide input as we draft the CAP update.  This meeting has been scheduled for February 3rd at 8:10 am in the staff room.  Please consider joining me for this conversation, coffee and pastries will be provided.  Read full message.
