Principal's Message

  • Principal Wharton Carey

    Welcome to ED Redd Elementary School, home of the Redd Lions! Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our school community, including our amazing students, our loving staff, our supporting families and 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. 

    Our theme this year is our mission: to create students who can dream! We have high expectations of all our students and this year we will be focused on student achievement and development of good character.  

    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.

    Great schools always come back to the relationship between the child and the teacher. 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 swharton@rvaschools.net or 804.780.5061.

    Yours in service,

    Dr. Sherry Wharton-Carey, Principal

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - September 25, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Happy Friday! Make sure to read all the amazing shout outs today; there are nearly three dozen! To close out the week, see below for a few pictures of our students' "classrooms" that families have shared with me. They've put a huge smile on my face, and I hope they do the same for you. With great appreciation, Jason

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

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I'd like to begin this evening by acknowledging the pain coursing through our community yet again in the wake of the decision yesterday by a Kentucky grand jury not to charge any of the officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor with homicide or manslaughter. Outcomes like this only tear at the unhealed wounds borne by so many within the RPS family. Please check on your colleagues, friends, and loved ones this evening. Please recognize that they may need extra time and space to process this latest injustice. And please be there for them, in whatever capacity they need. Thank you. I also want to take a moment tonight to express my profound gratitude to Karla Ramos (Manager, Office of Multicultural Affairs for the City of Richmond), Fernando Rodriguez (Communications Director, Richmond & Henrico Health Districts), Jannette Duhart (RPS Bilingual and EL Coordinator), and Yahusef Medina (RPS Bilingual Family Liaison) for a candid, insightful, and educational discussion on RPS Live! yesterday about the Hispanic/Latin-American/Latino/a/x community in Richmond and RPS. A big thank you as well to Carlos Hernandez, our interpreter for the evening. If you missed this episode, I strongly encourage you to check it out here. With great appreciation, Jason
