PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Welcome Rapids!

As your new principal, I am eager to meet with each of you as I believe we are successful only when we work together in partnership. For some of you, I was your child’s principal at both Chalkley Elementary School and Providence Middle School. I am excited to have the opportunity to transition with these students to James River, the place where I got my start in administration from 2005-2012. It’s true when they say, “once a Rapid, always a Rapid”, as I am thrilled to be coming back home!

It is important for you to know that I believe in maintaining a learning environment where everyone’s voice is valued and heard. As a mother of a recent high school graduate, and an educator for over twenty years, I think you should know that I have and will always continue to treat each and every student as if they are my own. To that end, I have very high expectations for every James River High School student. I expect them to come to school every day, work hard, be kind, and seek the interests they wish to pursue as adults. I expect our staff to maintain and exceed our Blue Ribbon School of Excellence standards and provide exceptional instruction every single day. I expect parents to reach out to me when needed and partner with their children’s teachers.

What can you expect from me? You can expect me to be a visible, daily presence in the classroom and at school events. You can expect an open door policy for you, students, staff, and the community. It is only through clear, targeted, expectations and collaboration that we will move forward in the path of excellence for each and every student.

We are ALL JR. All are welcome.
Amanda Voelker Ed. D.
Principal
James RIver High School
