Principal's Message

  • Principal Green

    Welcome to Broad Rock Elementary School, the home of the Rams! Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our school community, including our amazing students, our loving staff, our supporting families, partners, and our exciting programs. 

    As your principal, I am honored to lead our school community to help provide an exciting and rigorous educational experience for our students. Our team is committed to ensuring that our students receive the best possible support to learn and grow. 

    The mission of Broad Rock Elementary School, the gateway to success, is to empower students to become respectful, high achieving, life-long learners who are prepared to accomplish their goals. Our students will engage in diverse learning experiences and creative expression guided by the collaborative efforts of educators, families, and communities.

    Our skilled and devoted staff are committed to making a difference. They want to have a positive impact on your child and above all, they want to provide them with an engaging and joyful learning experience that supports them in becoming independent learners.  Our teachers are always working to get better at what they do through personal self-development and participation in a wide variety of professional development activities. They model life-long learning for our students and never settle for anything less than their best! Thank you to our incredible staff for their amazing professionalism and incredible energy and their commitment to our students.

    I believe that a collaborative school environment is a key to creating successful teachers and students. Partnerships with parents and community partners are essential to enriching the experience at Broad Rock Elementary. Be sure and find ways to engage yourself in school life – your child will notice and respond. There are numerous opportunities for parental involvement. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. May we all be present for the joy of learning, the satisfaction of a job well done, and the comfort that comes from belonging to a community. 

    To my students, staff, families, and community; I am so honored to be your servant leader. Thank you for the opportunity to work with such an amazing school community. I encourage you to stop in or call me to share ideas, concerns, or questions. I wish your family, and especially your student, great success this school year.

    If you have any questions, concerns, or just want to say hi, please feel free to contact me via at tbrown7@rvaschools.net or 804-780-5048.

    Yours in service,

    Principal Teya Green

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - November 24, 2020 (PM)

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Well, I said "flood" my inbox with shout outs – and flood you did! Thank you for sharing more than 100 beautiful messages of appreciation for our teachers, administrators, support staff, partners, families, and students. (I encourage you to read all the way to the end, as the last one is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.) I can't express how much these words of support, encouragement, and gratitude mean to the recipients. On behalf of RPS, thank you to everyone who wrote in! Before I sign off for the holiday break, I also want to express my profound gratitude to our principals, teachers, and support staff. Since March 13, you have delivered more than 2 million meals, purchased and distributed over 20,000 Chromebooks, facilitated more than 30,000 community circles, and literally reinvented what it means to be a teacher – all with boundless love for our students and families. In short, you have demonstrated that RPS is capable of doing truly extraordinary things. This Thanksgiving, I'm grateful for you. With the deepest appreciation, Jason

  • RPS Direct Update - November 24, 2020

    Dear #RPS Strong Family, I'm reaching out with this special RPS Direct to share that three staff members and two students have tested positive for COVID-19. The staff are from the Belt Boulevard Transportation Office (last there on 11-23), Armstrong High School (last there on 11-17), and the Academic Office in City Hall (last there in October). The student cases are from Ginter Park Elementary School and Thomas Jefferson High School (neither has been on campus this year). We encourage everyone to monitor their symptoms and reach out to their primary care provider if they have any concerns. They can also contact the Richmond City Health District’s COVID-19 hotline at (804) 205-3501. Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. We will continue to work in close collaboration with RCHD to ensure the well-being of the entire RPS community. If you have any questions, as always, please don't hesitate to contact me. Best, Jason
