From the Principal
Greetings Staff, Parents, and Community,
I am truly honored and excited to serve you and the community as Principal of Arden Elementary School for the 2019 – 2020 school term. As Principal, it is an expectation that we will maintain the focus on learning for both students and staff. I believe that working together, we can establish equity and excellence within our school. My desire and goal is that students, staff, parents and the community will continue to be partners in the learning process.
Arden Elementary has a strength of being collaborative and sharing a common goal for the benefit of all students. I truly believe in focusing on the positive and redirecting the negative. We will work to make sure all staff, parents, and students are treated with the utmost respect. This will reveal high expectations and a standard of excellence within our school on a daily basis.
As we move into the 2019 – 2020 school year, let’s embrace it with the Richland School District One direction of transforming lives through education while ensuring that they are productive citizens within our changing world. My doors are always open and you are always welcome. As a team, we will work to ensure that every child reaches a high level of success.
Again, I am grateful to be a part of this awesome staff, school and community. We will continue to be “One Community…..Growing and Learning Together!”
Let’s have an awesome year!
Dr. Timothy Blackwell, Principal
We are Arden Elementary School, a leader in transforming lives through education, empowering all students to achieve their potential and dreams.
