Principal's Message


  • Principal Dear Families of G. H. Reid Elementary School,

    It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the G. H. Reid Family! As your principal, I am delighted to work with our dedicated staff and community to help provide an excellent educational experience for our students. We are committed to ensuring that your child(ren) receive the best support to learn and grow.

    My vision for G. H. Reid is to provide students with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the world around them. Our goal is to provide a nurturing environment that meets the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially.

    Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. There are numerous opportunities for parental involvement at Reid. Parents are invited to participate in our Annual Back To School Night, Family Nights, STEM Fair, Career Day, Parent Teacher Conferences, student performances, fieldtrips, celebrations, etc. Monthly G. H. Reid updates will be posted on our website as well as sent home with our students. We encourage our parents to take advantage of every opportunity to support our students by continuous communication with teachers and staff. Our partnership is so important to the success of our students.

    We thank you for the opportunity to work with you and your child. It is our goal to provide a safe and productive learning environment. 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.

    Sincerely,

    Angela Delaney, M.Ed.
    Principal

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, One more day to go! Tonight's updates: 2021 Retirees – Today, we're honoring staff who are retiring with 20-39 years of service at RPS! Thank you so much for all those decades of teaching, leading, and serving with love. Tomorrow, we'll close out by honoring those with 40+ years of service!

The Liaisons working in the Cardinal Hub are bilingual and able to assist English and Spanish-speaking families.
