Principal's Message

Mr. Dueñas

I am so happy to be joining the James Whitman Riley Elementary School community.  Riley is starting two new programs, the Dual Immersion Spanish program and the Visual and Performing Arts program.   We will continue to expand the Collaborative Co-Teaching program.  Therefore, I feel so fortunate and privileged to have been selected to join the Riley learning community as these programs grow in the years to come. 

I have held many roles throughout my years in the district and in a variety of assignments and positions. The most important takeaway or lesson learned throughout my years has been, working together for a common goal while putting students first will lead towards results. 

I am confident that the Riley learning community will live up to its vision and mission making our school a dynamic learning community for all students, staff, and parents/guardians.   I look forward to working alongside students, staff, and parents/guardians as we unite towards our common goal of supporting all or our Riley scholars.  Together, let’s embrace the belief that all students can achieve given the right support.  My commitment is to all students, staff, and parents/guardians that I will do my best to provide all students with the right support. 

Mr. Dueñas
Proud Principal
James Whitcomb Riley Elementary School
