Principal's message

Dear families and community members,

I am delighted to be leading this wonderful school. At Edward S. Rhodes Elementary, we value our partnerships with parents, families and the community, and we enjoy working with families to help students achieve their full potential. Together, we can make a positive difference. We take seriously the trust you place in us by sending your children here each day, and we work hard to make students and families feel safe and supported. Here at Rhodes we plan engaging, rigorous and rewarding learning experiences for all students. We believe that each and every student has a unique gift to share and that we can help nurture that gift. We have a “no excuses” attitude in addition to high expectations for students and ourselves. We aim to develop students’ leadership skills, social emotional skills and academic skills so that they are prepared to succeed in middle school, high school, career, relationships and lifelong learning. We are reminded to demonstrate compassion, loyalty, ability, work ethic and success everyday through our PBIS program, CLAWS. Together with dedicated staff and remarkable students, we are proud to be Rhodes Elementary School Horseshoe Crabs! 

If you have any questions or concerns, I encourage you to email me at garmstrong@cpsed.net.

My Best,

Gina Armstrong
