Principal's message

Ms. Zipprich

At Roadrunner School our focus is on the social & emotional development of our students through social skills instruction and corrective teaching. Our teachers are all trained in the Specialized Classroom Management model, and imbed social skills instruction and positive behavior support throughout the school day. In addition to a high level of individualized academic instruction, our students also receive additional supports from our community partners.  Currently, we have monthly “readers” who visit our elementary classrooms and read to individual students. We also have monthly visits from a group of highly trained “Therapy Dogs” and their trainers. These partners are an important part of our Roadrunner School community, which includes our staff, students, parents and the many community organizations that support our mission here at Roadrunner School.  As we begin the 2014/15 school year, I’d like to welcome all of you back, and sincerely look forward to working with all of you this year.
