Principal's Message

  • Mr. Mitchem Dear Boulder Ridge Parents/Guardians:

    I want to start by welcoming each and every one of you to the 2019/20 school year here at Boulder Ridge Elementary School! I am excited to be back in my 4th year as principal at the greatest school in all of Riverside! I am hopeful that this year we will continue to learn, grow, and strive to meet the needs of all of our learners together. 

    We will continue working with and implimenting the 7 habits of highly effective kids at Boulder Ridge, and will be offering multiple opportunities for our parents/ guardians, as well as community members to come learn, and be a part of this process as well. This year, our focus is on integrating the 7 habits into the academic aspect of our school! Our staff is dedicated and excited to start sharing with our students how these 7 habits can translate from our social interactions, into the academic portion of our school day!

    We will also be spending a lot of time as grade level teams this year analyzing student performance data and putting clear, concise, and effective plans in place to ensure that each student at Boulder Ridge is given the extra time and support that they need in order to learn at a high level! 

    At Boulder Ridge, we are a team, a family, and a support system! We will strive to provide a safe, fun, educational environment where students are not only educated in the core subject areas, but given opportunties to experience STEAM, Art, Music, PE, and a myriad of clubs and activities in and outside of the school day! I am hopeful that this school year we will continue to see a decrease in negative student behaviors, and an increase in academic performance as we have seen over the last couple of years! 

    Again, welcome to the 2019/20 school year, and I am grateful to be able to serve the community that is Boulder Ridge. As always, my office door is open and do not hesitate to stop by, say hello, ask questions, or share your concerns with me. My goal is to create the best possible learning experience for your students, and I cannot do it alone!

    I appreciate all that you do, and look forward to working togehter this year to make Boulder an even better place!
