Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to Reskin Elementary School.  My name is David Rojas, and I am the new principal. I am very excited to be at Reskin School and look forward to getting to know you.  I have been a principal for the last six years, and I plan to use that experience here at Reskin School.  I graduated from the Moody Bible Institute with a double major (Radio Broadcasting and Education), then I went to Columbia College Chicago for my Masters of Arts in Teaching.  Later on, I went to Olivet Nazarene University for my Masters in Educational Leadership.  My experiences in the classroom include teaching English as a Second Language for students with diverse backgrounds, and Bilingual Kindergarten.  I truly enjoyed working closely with little ones.

Here at Reskin School, we expect another year of academic growth and proficiency in reading and math for all students, as well as creating student-centered and engaging classrooms.  I am very encouraged by the progress students have shown in previous years, and look forward to working with teachers, students, and parents to continue their academic success. We want to encourage all students to complete 800 total reading steps this year by reading 2 steps (30 Min.) every night. So let’s keep reading, keep reading, and keep reading. 

Please remind your student of the importance of being respectful, responsible, and safe at school. Our Positive Behavioral Intervention System (PBIS) will continue to be implemented to empower students to make positive choices, which positively impacts learning. As with every year, our school is committed to providing a comfortable learning environment for all students.

You are a vital partner in your child’s academic growth. So we are counting on you to make sure your child is at school every day, they are here on time, and they are ready to learn!  Your support is vital and know that if you have any questions, you can always contact the school office to talk to us. 

If you have questions or concerns during the year, please feel free to contact me. The staff and I look forward to working in partnership with you and your child during the upcoming school year.

Let’s have a great school year!


David Rojas, Principal
