Principal's Message

  • Principal Massenburg Dear Pharaohs,

    Thank you for another successful school year. I can’t thank everyone enough for your endless efforts, energy, support, skills, and devotion in making the best out of this school year. Your hard work and dedication is not unnoticed, and I sincerely thank you. Special thanks to our teachers who, as usual, went above and beyond the call of duty to provide whatever was necessary to add to our scholars’ virtual school experience. Thanks and well done to an incredible group of professionals. I am so proud and lucky to be your principal.

    A shout-out to the parents: You made your homes our school during this virtual year. You attended virtual PTSA meetings, plays, community meetings, and coffee-with-the-principal sessions to stay connected. You read weekly newsletters and checked ASPEN for grade updates countless times. You sent countless text messages, phone calls, and emails to ensure your scholars were logged in their Google links. We appreciate you holding us down and supporting our vision. We ARE because of YOU! Thank you!

    A final word to scholars: Thank you for all your hard work throughout this school year. I am so honored to be your principal; you make me proud to be a Pharaoh. Your resilience was on full display daily. I am grateful for your commitment, your pursuit of excellence, and your unwavering achievement. Best wishes to all of you. I can’t wait until we reunite this fall. Everyone have a safe and happy summer break.

    Until next school year, be kind and spread love and please remember: “We are Pharaohs, leading the way while standing firm in our excellence……… All In, All One, All Pharaohs,”


    Mrs. Kenya Massenburg

  • RPS Direct Update - June 21, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, My apologies for coming to you later than usual tonight – we just wrapped up John Marshall's graduation ceremony at The Diamond! That was our third one of the day: this morning was Huguenot HS and this afternoon was Open HS. All three were all absolutely fantastic (see below for some pix of our valedictorians). Big shout out to Principal Gilstrap, Principal Carleton, Principal Murray, and our Chief Schools Officer, Harry Hughes, for planning and executing beautiful ceremonies! And, of course, congratulations to our amazing, pandemic-defying graduates.
