Welcome to the Riddle Elementary School web page.   This site has several areas and information for you to know what Riddle School is all about.  As the principal of Riddle Elementary School, I am excited to get to know your child and your family as the school year progresses.  The mission of Rochester School Corporation is to “Inspire individuals to …..learn, grow, and give.”

LEARN – The teachers at Riddle Elementary School spend time meeting the needs of all of their students.  The staff is continuously learning through Professional Development and collaboration with colleagues.  We are an inclusive school that provides standards based instruction, hands on projects, and opportunities for learning outside of the building.

GROW – As students here at Riddle Elementary School, all students are expected to develop good manners and character throughout their years.  We provide character education for all grade levels and provide opportunities for students to be in various student groups to learn collaboration skills.  We are a 1:1 school providing iPads for all students as an instructional tool for learning.  Students learn proper online usage and we provide ways for all to become 21st Century Learners.

GIVE – Riddle Elementary School provides students with a sense of caring, respectfulness, and responsibility.  The students and staff will be there for others to help with needs and promote a positive climate and culture.  Our students have opportunities for service learning projects, promoting a sense of community, and giving to others.

I am excited to spend this year with you.  Don’t hesitate to stop by the school and introduce yourself.  Please let me know if you need assistance or have questions.  It is a great day to be a Zebra!!
