Principal's Message

Welcome to Riverside Elementary School...
Where Excellence is the Expectation!   

 Kimberly Hankerson, Principal
Charisse Hurdle, Assistant Principal


Kimberly HankersonRiverside families and community members, I am honored to be entering my fourth year as principal of Riverside Elementary. Although making the right decision on your child’s mode of education may be difficult for your family this school year, I assure you that we at Riverside Elementary are doing everything we can to continue to be a community of learners including teachers, parents, students and staff; while ensuring safety measures are in place for everyone. 

Although the start to this school year is unconventional, we will continue to uphold high standards with a commitment to improving the educational process, using team strategies, working directly with and involving both the community and families, while centering on the whole child and student success.  Our school is committed to meeting the needs of every child.

We are committed to helping all students achieve not only academic success, but also becoming productive and responsible members of the community by creating a learning environment that fosters the social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth of all students. This school year we will begin implementing strategies from The Leader in Me to help students realize their full leadership potential, while providing training and workshops to help families further develop these skills at home.  

I look forward to working with you as we create a school where the staff is valued, parents are welcome, and students are engaged and excited about learning. There are many ways you can get involved at our school. You may choose to join our PTA or SAC, volunteer in the classroom, or attend field trips; just to name a few. If you have not already, I invite you to sign up as an ADDitions volunteer by clicking here.

I also encourage you to follow us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.

We will make this another great year…TOGETHER!

Wishing you well,

Kimberly Hankerson
