Principal's Message

    Dear Friends,

    Welcome to River Woods Elementary School! Our desire is to provide all River Woods children with an excellent education in a warm and supportive school community. We are committed to graduating students who think critically, solve problems, make decisions, and have the skills necessary for productive citizenship and life-long learning by providing excellent comprehensive programs and services. At River Woods, our goals are for every family to feel welcomed and each child to be the best he/she can be. 

    As a guide for sustaining River Woods School’s positive community environment, we exhibit PRIDE.

    Decision Making

    We celebrate our PRIDE filled successes each day. Our students and staff demonstrate the PRIDE attributes as we work together in promotion of each other’s learning. 
    Strong parental and community support elevates the high quality of education at River Woods. Please join us as we partner to create a bright and successful future for every student. During the 2023-24 school year, we hope that you will participate in Home & School, Family and Community Partnership activities, and volunteer your time and energy to the many wonderful River Woods programs. We know that your involvement, combined with the efforts of our outstanding staff, will make learning at River Woods a rich and rewarding experience. Please call me at 630-420-6630 or email me at and let me know how we can further collaborate to enhance our school community. 
    Wishing you PRIDE filled days,

    Gina Baumgartner,

    Mrs. Baumgartner
