Welcome Newtown Elementary parents, students, and community partners!  My name is Heidi Rinehart-Richardson and I am honored to be the principal of Newtown Elementary School.   I have enjoyed a variety of educational experiences which include classroom teacher and reading and math instructional specialist.  I have served as the Assistant Principal of Birdneck Elementary and most recently Windsor Oaks Elementary.  We will be following the VBCPS Compass to 2020 Strategic Framework for teaching and learning, with the focus of ensuring that every child is challenged and supported to reach his or her full potential.  This school year we will concentrate on the processes that spur continuing advancement; evaluating what we have, determining what we can do to improve, and identifying what we need to make those improvements.

It is my sincere desire to build collaborative relationships with teachers, parents, students, colleagues, and community partners to enhance the learning experience for all.  Our students’ academic progress, social and emotional growth, as well as their safety and welfare are our priorities as we achieve excellence in a personalized way.
