Teacher Appreciation Week

  • Teacher Appreciation Week


    The Rialto 㽶Ƶ District proudly celebrates teachers throughout Teacher Appreciation Week (May 3-7, 2021). On behalf of the RUSD Board of Education and Superintendent Dr. Cuauhtémoc Avila, we proudly thank our dedicated teachers for your immeasurable service to our 㽶Ƶ and Rialto families. We value and appreciate your compassion throughout Bridge Academy. Despite the challenges of this past year and a half, it is because of your innovative thinking, adaptability, and continued commitment to improving student lives, that our District has continued to thrive. 

    We would like for you to meet a few of the RUSD faces of excellence. These teachers (see full list below) were nominated  by each of our 29 principals, as their site’s “Teacher of Year.” We also congratulate Ms. Noelle Krieder, from Dollahan Elementary 㽶Ƶ, who was selected as the RUSD “Teacher of the Year.” Ms. Kreider, along with RUSD’s “Classified Employee of the Year,” will be honored at a future RUSD school board meeting. More information will be shared toward the end of the school year.

    We thank ALL of our dedicated teachers for providing our 㽶Ƶ with a rigorous 㽶Ƶ through compassion and kindness.
