– From The Phoenix Rising School’s January 27th Newsletter:
We would like to keep you informed of a shift that is happening at The Phoenix Rising School. Our Board has been working diligently this past year on identifying the way forward to a brilliant, academically sound, sustainable school. After much consideration, we have decided that the school must have an experienced Principal and Educator as The Head of School. This addition to our team will insure programs are rigorous, educationally relevant and that all children are appropriately challenged to bring out their greatest potential. Our school’s C.R.E.A.T.E program will be further supported with a school wide, cohesive curriculum. Our children’s bright minds and their future are of utmost importance and the reason this school exists.
We are pleased to announce that we have hired as our new Head of school, Ms. Jorge-Ayn Riley (Ms. Jay), a Principal/Educator with over 30 years’ experience (please click here for her resume). She has recently moved to the area and has been introduced to our community by her niece Cozette Fyrst. Her first day with us in this position was Monday January 23rd. We have been blessed to have her the past few months working with members of the Board and on campus mentoring staff. She has already seen our children in action and notes their high level of capability. We are confident in Ms. Jay’s ability and commitment to strengthen our school’s culture and academic programs, continuing to make our school a place where our outstanding children’s minds can shine.
We are excited to be able to share with you, our community, this next chapter in the life of The Phoenix Rising School!
Additionally, we will be holding an early spring appreciation event for all of our community to come and meet Ms. Jay and see what the children have been up to (details coming soon). The Board and Staff look forward to seeing you there. We want you to know that we would not be here without you. If you have any questions, please reach out, our Board is always happy to connect with you. We have all been touched by the incredible amount of support and talent that has been offered to our school. We thank you and look forward to the future together.
