Principal Message

My name is Joleen Kitt and as the new principal, I am honoured to have joined the students, staff, parents and community of Riverdale School. Riverdale is a vibrant community school and we are fortunate to have high levels of community and parental engagement.

At Riverdale School, we believe that educating our students is a collective responsibility, shared by students and their families, school staff and the entire community. Through a collaborative approach in working together with you as partners, we will maximize the potential of all students. We are committed to providing a positive learning environment that will foster and support high academic and behavioural expectations, capitalizing on the value of strong relationships.

As a school, we use SchoolZone as our primary mode of communication and we encourage our parents to check SchoolZone daily to receive timely information.

If you have children here, we are so thankful you have chosen Riverdale School.  We look forward to working with them each day. If you don't have children here, Riverdale School is a welcoming environment where we all work together to ensure that all of our students learn at high levels as responsible, productive and engaged citizens within the global community.


Yours in Partnership,

Joleen Kitt
