Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!

I am excited to return for my second year as the principal of Riverside Middle School. I anticipate another positive year partnering with the staff and community to ensure our students have a successful school year.

Riverside staff strives to provide high-quality instruction that supports the academic, social and emotional growth of all students. We are proud to continue project-based learning, an excellent After School Program, and several athletic organizations that offer something for everyone. Riverside encourages its students to get involved and stay involved. Students may participate in sports, band, choir, cheer, UIL Academics, and a variety of student clubs throughout the year.

Our staff recognizes the role they play in helping your children reach their full potential, and they do not take the responsibility lightly. We truly believe all students can be successful, and this belief drives the work we do on a daily basis. Teachers will continue to monitor student progress and prepare them for high stakes state testing by incorporating TEKS aligned lessons, use of technology, and offering tutoring opportunities before school, after school, and Saturday mornings.

Parent involvement is vital to your children’s success, and we ask that you continue to play an active role in their education. Please feel free to contact teachers for conferences at your convenience, volunteer with our campus Parental Involvement Center every Thursday morning, or visit our campus during our Open House events.

Last year, Riverside Middle School Met Standard and earned a Distinction in Science. This year, Riverside staff is prepared for the challenge to continue growing and succeeding. I am honored to lead such an outstanding school within our San Benito Consolidated Independent School District and, and I look forward to what I know will be a rewarding year for our students and staff.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at with questions, concerns, or input at any time.

Proud to be a Bulldog!
