Principal's Message

  • Maurice Burton November is Native American Heritage Month.

    America is a vast land of many cultures dating back thousands of years to the original inhabitants of the land. History, heritage, or culture of Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians are part of every national park and communities across the country today. Every November during Native American Heritage Month and throughout the year, the National Park Service and its partners share history and the continuing culture of America's indigenous peoples.

    Please take a moment to explore the site below to discover the richness and contributions of Native Americans.

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - January 26 (PM), 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Please forgive me for the delay tonight! It's late so I'll cut to the chase: thank you for sharing so many wonderful shout-outs for our school leaders! On my weekly principal call this afternoon, we took a group photo (see below) with everyone making the heart sign. This is now one of my all-time favorite RPS photos, as it so beautifully represents our motto: Teach with Love, Lead with Love, and Serve with Love. These incredible leaders give their entire souls to the students, families, and staff of RPS, and I couldn't be more honored to work alongside them every day. Before signing off, I want to give my principal when I was a teacher in DC – Mr. William Lipscomb – a shout out. Thank you for picking me up from the Minnesota Avenue metro stop that first day and for all your support ever since. I'm forever in your debt.
