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.

Principal Teya Green

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras
Dear #RPSStrong Family, This evening, I’d like to preview the recommendation I’ll be making to the School Board on Monday regarding the second semester. Before doing so, I want to express my profound gratitude to the nearly 10,000 families and staff who responded to our surveys, as well as the hundreds of people who reached out to me personally to share their thoughts. I also want to thank our educators and support staff, our families, and most of all, our students, for showing each other so much grace over the past several months. Though our fall has been far from perfect, I do believe we managed to #ReopenWithLove and we should all be immensely proud of that. At Monday’s School Board meeting, I will recommend that we remain fully virtual for the second semester. I plan to do so for three reasons. First, given rapidly rising infection rates, I continue to be very concerned about the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. Just yesterday, the United States experienced the highest number of COVID deaths and hospitalizations ever. Here in Virginia, we also hit a new high for hospitalizations.
Dear #RPSStrong Family, Don't forget to tune in at 6 pm tonight on the RPS Facebook page for our Civic Voices Town Hall about retaining, developing, and recruiting male teachers of color. Please note that RPS Live! will return next Wednesday at 7 pm. Switching gears, we're looking for volunteers to help distribute Winter Break meal packs from Tuesday, December 15, through Thursday, December 17. If you can help, please sign up here. Thank you! Finally, in case you missed them, check out these two articles about our 2020 REB Winners and the Richmond Alternative School Turkey Giveaway. Thanks to Kenya Hunter from the RTD for covering these stories!
