Principal's Message

September 2021

Welcome to Richmond  PS - where we are Stronger Together!

I am very proud to be the principal of this dynamic community school, where student achievement and well-being is our top priority. We strive to create an inclusive school community, where our students and families feel respected, represented and appreciated. We believe in a team approach, so please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns to share. Open communication is key to the success of our students and school as a whole.

During Covid-19, we are working especially hard each day to ensure RPS is a safe and welcoming place for students. We achieved great success with this last year, and continue to have many safety protocols and procedures in place this year to ensure the utmost safety of both our staff and students.

Personally, I strongly believe that relationships between staff, students and families are the key to successful schools. By creating the conditions for learning,  where students feel safe and valued, we ensure they can achieve success; not only academically, but socially and emotionally as well. I also understand that success is unique and defined differently for each and every one of our students. It is therefore our role to meet our students where they are, and differentiate their learning based on their strengths and goals. I work alongside staff to ensure equitable practices within the school, and we take every opportunity to celebrate our community and diversity!

I have worked as an educator for over 20 years, as a teacher, an Instructional Coach, and Vice-Principal, but now greatly enjoy my role as Principal.  I have lived in the Stittsville area my entire life, and attended many local schools as a student -  including South Carleton HS, where my 2 teenage daughters now attend!

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to connect.

All the best,

Laura Ladouceur
Principal of RPS
