Diana ThumbDear Rupley Elementary School Community,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! My name is Diana O’Donnell and I am honored to be your new principal. Most recently, I was the principal at Kilmer Elementary School in Wheeling School District 21 for four years and bring over 17 years of educational experience in both elementary and middle level education. I have a strong passion for my students and will provide a safe and engaging school environment at Rupley School. My primary goal is to work collaboratively with all students, parents, and staff to create a school that believes in preparing students for success in life!

Dan Allaway, previously at Clearmont Elementary School, will be joining me as assistant principal. Together we will be the new administrative team at Rupley. We will be working hard to support, encourage, and foster a school climate that allows for creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and reflection, so that our students experience the best conditions for learning.

Our school theme this year is “Journey to Success!”. We are creating learning experiences to help develop student understanding of the characteristics required to be a life long learner. The Rupley community will strive to help comfort and guide our students as they explore engaging and instructive life lessons.

We look forward to meeting all of our families and ensuring that our parents and community members know they are vital to our school’s success. We invite and encourage all parents and community members to partner with us to promote and support the health, well-being, and education of all our students.

We are very proud of our school and plan on communicating each month through the Rupley Review, an email focused on communicating our successes and future events. Please connect via FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram or feel free to call or email me with any questions or concerns. We are looking forward to providing leadership to ensure Rupley School is making a positive impact on all.

Sincerely,

Diana O’Donnell – Principal                                     Dan Allaway- Assistant Principal
