Interim Principal Nick LeReche Assistant Principal Ketia Singleton
Dear Families of Lois Harrison-Jones Elementary School,
Words cannot explain how excited I am to introduce myself as the Interim Principal of Lois Harrison Jones Elementary School! My name is Nick LeReche, and I am beyond thrilled to join this outstanding team and community.
Let me share a bit about myself. Back in 1997, I arrived in Richmond to pursue my education at VCU, and this city has held a special place in my heart ever since. When I'm not immersed in the world of education, you can find me embracing the great outdoors, camping, hiking, and fishing. My family is my biggest joy, and I am blessed with two amazing children, Jackson, who is 9 years old, and Susie, who is 13. For almost 17 wonderful years, I have been happily married to my wife Corinne, who happens to be an Elementary School Counselor.
In my 23 years as an educator, I have had the privilege of serving in various roles, including 10 years as a Special Education Teacher, 10 years as an Assistant Principal (6 of them in RPS), and this will be my third year as a Principal (interim). Throughout my career, I have come to firmly believe in the power of doing the little things right, embracing hard work, and most importantly, having fun. It is my goal that we work together to provide amazing learning experiences for our scholars. Together, as a team, I am confident that we will create an environment where every child thrives and finds joy in their educational journey.
As we embark on this exciting chapter together, I am eager to collaborate with each of you, drawing upon our collective knowledge, experiences, and innovative ideas. I am confident that our dedication and unwavering commitment will enable us to continue our school community where we foster growth, curiosity, and a genuine love for learning. Together, we will make a lasting impact on the lives of our students, inspiring them to reach for the stars. This is why our theme for the 2023-2024 School Year will be “Growing Together, Shaping Futures”
I am immensely grateful for the warm welcome I have already received, and I cannot wait to welcome your scholars back to school on August 21st! Let's make this year an extraordinary one, filled with laughter, growth, and incredible memories!
