• Welcome to East Rapids Elementary

    We have the privilege and responsibility of working with very important individuals -- your children. We feel certain that school will be exciting and challenging for all of us as we work toward the common goal of providing the best educational experiences for all students.

    Some of you may know me as the Assistant Principal for RJEMS and before that, I was the elementary principal at King Elementary in Deer River. Our administrative team will also include Bruce Goodwin as the Assistant Principal. Mr. Goodwin was recently the Interim Principal at Murphy Elementary and prior to that was also an Assistant Principal at RJEMS.

    We are welcoming you to a new school, but our commitment to students remains the same. Our goal is to provide a safe, accepting, and positive environment where students experience meaningful learning every day. We are proud of our school and the strong work we do with children every day.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
