Principal Kim Marks

Dear RideOut Elementary Community,

I am excited and honored to serve as the principal of RideOut Elementary School.  My passion for education and the success of all students has been shaped over the past 26 years serving as a teacher of elementary and middle school, a math coach, and an assistant principal.

We have a wonderful school community. Our caring staff members work hard to help all students learn and want what is best for them. Our goal is to ensure that all students become critical thinkers, active problem-solvers, inquisitive readers, and prolific writers. We strive to create rich learning experiences for all students.

Our students are eager to learn and we strive to help them follow our Roadrunner expectations of being positive role models to each other. The five principles we work to instill are based on the question, “What would ROEdy do?”

I sincerely care about all our children and their families.  Ensuring a safe, positive learning environment is a top priority for me. Together as a school community, we will build on the traditions of the past and meet the challenges of the future.   Please feel free to contact me with questions, comments, or concerns.  Thank you for supporting our school.
