Back to School Letter

Raider Families,

It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to welcome you to Richmond County Elementary/Middle School.  Whether you are joining us for the first time or you have been a part of the Raider family for years, we encourage you to make the most of your time with us. RCEMS will continue its commitment to academic excellence and place a renewed focus on “Be A Raider” 


I am excited to work in this outstanding community and serve as the principal Richmond County Elementary/Middle School.  Prior to this appointment, I have served Isle of Wight, Newport News and Suffolk as an administrator.  Becoming a principal has always been a dream of mine and I could not have asked for a better opportunity than to serve this great community.  I am looking forward to the new opportunities and rewards that the 2022-2023 academic year will bring as we work together to ensure that all students are provided the best possible experience.   


The school administration will strive to be visible and accessible at all times to meet your needs.  Please do not hesitate to call and schedule an appointment if you have a specific concern or question about the progress of your child.


We hope that our commitment to you and your child(ren) is evident the moment you walk through the front door and I would like to thank you for allowing us the opportunity to work with you and your family.


Please join us on August 11th any time from 2:00PM-6:00PM for our Open House!
