Dear Rutherford Community,
Welcome to Rutherford Elementary. It is a privilege and honor to be the
principal at such a wonderful and exciting place for learning. I am
the warm, friendly face that you will see bright and early as I greet
all who enter the building. As children enter the building, we want
you to know that they are valued and surrounded by dedicated staff
members that go far and beyond to instill enriched learning
opportunities as well as social skills to enhance their educational
experience.Our primary focus is to work together with our families to
ensure that all children are successful. Read more...
Rutherford is a true melting pot of the world's cultures. Our students don't just attend classes with children from around the world but we all participate and celebrate in this diversity. All students are included and there is a daily respect and appreciation throughout our population of students and staff for all cultures. Everyday is a learning experience that brings with it new ideas and new understandings that teach students to accept themselves and others for who they are. A large portion of our cultural diversity comes from the continent of Asia. Every year, Rutherford has a school-wide celebration of the Asian New Year. It is always great fun! Students of all races, ethnicities, backgrounds, and cultural differences participate and learn many traditions and aspects of Asian culture. Celebrations and activities for African American, Hispanic, and other cultures can be found throughout the year as well.
