Hello, and welcome to Rio Grande website. My name is Susan Lewis and I’m Principal of Rio Grande. A bit about myself: I attended Indiana State University for my Bachelor’s of Science in Education, I then obtained a Gifted and Talented Endorsement from Indiana -University, after that I earned my Master’s in K- 12 Administration from Indiana State University. Before I began teaching I spent an entire summer in Evanston, Illinois studying the Montessori teaching style. As principal of Rio Grande, I am proud and eager to serve this outstanding school community.

Rio Grande has a strong academic program based on the Indiana Academic Standards. All of our teachers work hard to provide high quality learning experiences. Our reading series is based on the research of the National Reading Panel and our math program, Everyday Math, is from the University of Chicago and is researched based. We have a Reading Recovery Program that gives intensive reading help to those first grade students who are in need of extra help. We are accredited by the state of Indiana and Advanc-Ed, the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement.

Our parents are very valuable to us here at Rio Grande. They support us at home by monitoring homework, providing enrichment activities, and teaching their children about the value of a good education. Many of our parents are involved in our PTO, please consider joining. Please feel free to visit us anytime. You will be pleased with what you see here at our school. Should you have any questions regarding your child’s education, or our school, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Ms. Susan Lewis
