Welcome to another exciting year at Rorimer Elementary. It is an honor to continue serving the Rorimer community for this 2019-2020 school year. My staff and I are eager to begin the new school year! During the 2018-19 school year, our students made outstanding gains in both academics and social/emotional areas. My goal for this new year, is to continue to ensure that your child is provided with a rigorous and challenging education that will prepare him/her for a college and/or career. Together with my staff we: value and deeply care about the success of each student, ensure that every student is provided with rigorous and challenging academics, meet continually to create targeted lessons based on student need and ensure a safe and caring environment for all.
Rorimer School offers a Dual Language program that prepares students towards biliterate/bilingual in Spanish. Students in these classes are taught to master the state common core standards in both English and Spanish. In a global society where many already speak two languages, our students will be equipped with reading and writing academic English and Spanish.
I am proud to announce that last year our school was recognized with a BRONZE medal for the work around Positive Supports and Intervention Program (PBIS). This program introduced our students to the “The Royal Way” and reinforced the 3R’s: Respect, Responsible and Building Relationships. Through our PBIS program, our staff will continue to guide students as they are challenged to solve solutions to real-life problems.
Our RORIMER ROBOTICS program continues to flourish. At Rorimer we provide all students from TK-6 with programming and programming concepts classes during and after school. We understand that the STEM field is one of the fastest growing careers today, therefore, it is important for the Rorimer staff to prepare students for future endeavors.
We believe that a students education is a joint effort that involves the school, the parent/guardian and the students. At Rorimer, we have an active PTA who volunteer throughout the year to support field trips, school events and programs. Our PTA is happy to assist you with volunteer opportunities in our school. I look forward to seeing you and encourage you to join us at our PTA, School Site Council, Morning Break Club, Cafecito or ELAC meetings.
I look forward to another productive year,
Dr. Celia Munguia
Principal, Rorimer School
