Dear Tomas Rivera Families,

I am honored to be a part of a learning community that is committed to establishing a school culture which recognizes no limitations in the achievement and success of each student. With your support I’m confident that our students will continue to excel in their academic and social endeavors. 

We will continue with our motto Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe. We are excited as Tomas Rivera Roadrunners to show our character through our motto!  

Our mission at Tomas Rivera is to focus on student learning. The staff is dedicated, collaboratively, in achieving student learning by answering these four critical questions:
     1) What are students learning?
     2) How do we know they learned it?
     3) What do we do if they didn’t learn it?
     4) What do we do if they did learn it?
This will ensure that all students can achieve academic success at Tomas Rivera Middle School.  


Working together we can support student learning and celebrate student achievements! Tomas Rivera is very fortunate to have a staff of dedicated and committed teachers.  

We thank you for your continued support and cooperation regarding your child’s/children’s education. I look forward to seeing you at school functions, meetings, and activities.  


Esteban Lizarraga (Principal)
