  • 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.
