Principal's Message



Principal RPS
Welcome Warriors!


I am beyond excited to be selected as Principal of Rochester Primary School. 


I was hired as the assistant principal for RPS in 2021. Prior to that, I worked as an instructional facilitator and first grade teacher at Edison Elementary School in Centralia.


At RPS, we are committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and inclusive environment where every child can thrive. Our dedicated staff is here to support your child academically, socially, and emotionally, ensuring they become lifelong learners and productive citizens.


I look ahead to building strong relationships with our students, our staff, our families and our community. On our Preschool-Second Grade campus I believe in having fun with learning, instilling a love of reading in our students and spreading joy across our campus.

As your principal, I encourage open communication and collaboration between home and school. Together, we can create a strong partnership that fosters success for your child. I also deeply value being present for our students and our staff. This often means I am in classrooms, on the playground or walking our hallways. If you need to connect with me, our front office staff will happily schedule a time for us to meet or take a message so that I can return your call. Thank you for your understanding and thank you for entrusting us with the education of your children.  

Your Friendly Principal,

Ms. Dani Cearns
