From The Principal

Greetings, from Rice Lake Elementary!

Thank you for visiting our website. At Rice Lake Elementary, we build strong connections with our students, families, and community. These relationships serve as the foundation for our ever changing learning environment…..focused on student growth, student choice, and student success.

At Rice Lake, we are committed to our District’s mission;

Our mission is to inspire and prepare all students with the
confidence, courage and competence to achieve their dreams;
contribute to community; and engage in a lifetime of learning.

Our talented staff works tirelessly, to bring our mission to fruition. Rice Lake provides support through numerous programs; gifted education, special education and English Learner. Instructional Education Support Professionals (ESPs) assist teachers and students in the classroom, and we have a myriad of licensed support professionals that also support students, families, and teachers.

Our school theme is “Rice Lake Roadrunners Model Respect, Learning and Responsibility,” or RLR2. We incorporate these three expectations into our entire K-5 curriculum sequence, both social and academic. We recognize over 250 students each year as Citizens of the Month, and students earn “Right on Track” coupons when they are recognized for modeling RLR. You can see our Citizens of the Month and our Right on Track honorees displayed in our hallways.

I invite you to visit Rice Lake Elementary, and experience our wonderful school community. If I can help you, or answer any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.


With care,
Margo Kleven, Principal
