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 email@example.com or 804-780-5048.
Yours in service,
Principal Teya Green

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras
Dear #RPSStrong Family, I am devastated to share that we lost two RPS students last night – one from Franklin Military Academy and one from Richmond Alternative School – in two separate tragedies. The students had connections to a number of other schools, including Henderson Middle School, Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School, Chimborazo Elementary School, and Huguenot High School. All of these communities are grieving this evening; please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. On behalf of RPS, I want to extend my deepest condolences to both students' families. As a parent, I can't bear to imagine the pain they are experiencing right now. I pray that the RPS family will do whatever is necessary to provide them with a glimmer of light amidst the darkness they now face. With great appreciation, Jason
Dear #RPSStrong Family, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Quick reminder that we have a School Board meeting this evening at 6 pm, which you can watch on our Facebook page. We'll be discussing a number of topics, including draft proposals for adjusted schedules (see pages 9-16 here). We crafted these proposals based on all the feedback we received over the past week or so. I personally read hundreds of your emails (thank you for sending them!) and tried to guide our team by synthesizing everything I heard. Please note that they are, by no means, final. I humbly ask for your grace as we continue to refine these drafts with additional feedback. (Dr. Epp, our Chief Academic Officer, will share more tonight about the ways we're hoping to get additional input.) Click above to read more!
