A Message from the Principal



    Dear Parents,

    On behalf of the staff at Tomas Rivera Elementary School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year! I am looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential.  This is my 15th year in administration at Tomas Rivera, and my 8th year as the building Principal.  I absolutely love my job, and love seeing the students' growth and development throughout each school year.
    I recognize that in order to be successful in school, children need support from both the home and school.  As partners, we all share the responsibility for the success of the Rivera students. At Rivera, we uphold high expectations for not only our students, but for staff also!  I personally invite you to join our school volunteer program as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations.  Additionally, if you have any questions or concerns, I have an open door policy.  

    Other ways you may provide input are through the Suggestion Box located in the Rivera front office, or by responding to the school Blog at https://www.dentonisd.org/Page/57539. We value your input and feedback!  Thank you in advance for entrusting your child(ren) to us.  We promise to do our very best to prepare him/her for life well beyond elementary school!  Tomas Rivera Elementary School is truly a school "Where Every Child is a STAR!"
    Best regards,
     Mrs. R.Thomas, M. Ed.
