Letter from Principal Lucas

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students:

Hello! My name is Ms. Elizabeth Lucas, and I am the new principal of Riverside Academy. This is my 30th year in education. During those years I’ve been an English teacher, an instructional coach, a dean of students, and an assistant principal. I earned my bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Miami University. I received my principal’s license from Xavier University, and then went back to Miami for my superintendent’s license. All that work has brought me here to serve you as a Riverside Lion!

I love teaching and helping all students succeed. Even if school hasn’t been a great experience for students in the past, they will find some success at school this year. While students read, write, and share, they will learn responsibility for their classwork and for their behavior. Students will also prepare for the Ohio State Tests and leave as 8th graders who are prepared for high school. With the help of the dedicated Riverside Academy staff, students will become confident, successful members of the Riverside Academy learning community.

This year will be a time of excitement, change, and growth for you. I am so glad that I can be a part of this special time in your lives.

 

                                                                                    Sincerely,
Ms. Elizabeth Lucas
Principal
