Principal's Message

Welcome to JRES! I am honored to have the opportunity to be the principal of a wonderful group of students and families. Our school has been identified as a High Performing School from the KY Department of Education, ranking in the state's top 10% of schools.


We have a strong, dedicated staff that is committed to helping every child grow and develop their love for learning. We believe all of our students have the right to learn in a safe, caring atmosphere with a strong focus on a rigorous curriculum, which allows many opportunities for our students to excel. Our staff strives to make learning engaging, while remaining focused on intentional academic rigor. 


Along with our focus on academics, we are also striving to build strong citizenship by being a leadership school. We incorporate The Leader in Me philosophy to help our students internalize the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People developed by Dr. Stephen Covey. We also use Ron Clark's, 55 Essential Rules for Success. We are committed to helping our students develop important 21st century skills such as respect, responsibility, self-discipline, confidence, and communication skills that they need to succeed in school and in their future careers. 


The future of Jody Richards Elementary School is bright! I am confident the students will continue to grow and achieve as we work to maintain the high standard of excellence set forth by their teachers and parents. We are very proud of the Jody Richards’ school community! We welcome your participation as we prepare our future leaders!
Go Rockets!
