Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians and Community Members,

Welcome to a brand new school year. It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction as the new principal of James H. Rodriguez Elementary.  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead this school.  My name is Veronica L. Dean.  I come to you with 17 years of educational experience.  As your principal, it is my role to facilitate the teaching and learning that take place at this beautiful school as well as provide a safe and respectful learning environment for all school community members.  I would like to create a welcoming friendly environment for everyone that walks through our doors, promote a culture of excellence, and unlock the potential of every student.  I would like for every child to be greeted with a smile and provide them with the support they need for educational excellence.  

Through collaboration and cooperation we can accomplish anything.  I invite you and encourage you to visit our school.   As a staff, we recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both home and school.  We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know I will do my very best to carry out the school’s responsibilities.  I ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

  • Attends school daily and arrives on time.
  • Completes all homework assignments given by teachers.
  • Reads daily to develop skills and a love of learning.
  • Join our school’s Parent Advisory Committee.

I look forward to a positive and productive year together.  Let us begin our journey to success.

Veronica L. Dean, Principal
