Principal's Message
It is truly an honor to serve as principal of Tomas Rivera Middle School, home of the Roadrunners! At Tomas Rivera, we take great pride in ensuring high levels of learning for ALL students! In fact we strive to ensure the Academic, Social and Emotional success for EVERY child.

Parents, we promise to provide a learning environment that is positive, safe, caring and a fun place to learn and grow! My message to you is to stay involved. This can be accomplished by staying in contact with your child’s teacher, volunteering to serve on our Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO), our English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC), our School Site Council (SSC) or serving as a volunteer on field-trips or in one of our classrooms.

Lastly, our expectations will be to consistently make you aware of your child’s progress, and answer any questions or concerns you have at any time. This form of two-way monitoring will help ensure the success of your student’s education and well-being. You may access your child’s progress at anytime on your Aeries Parent Portal (see the links above under “Information for Parents).
