Ms. Charlotte Watkins

Welcome to a new school year at Riverdale Baptist Elementary School. I am honored to serve as your child’s principal as he/she embarks upon an amazing spiritual and academic journey that is purposefully designed to challenge, engage, and meet his/her needs.

Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” The elementary years often shape a child’s love for learning. At Riverdale Baptist Elementary School our faculty and staff create and nurture a safe and secure environment that is designed to celebrate each child’s unique God give gifts. We strive to meet the needs of each student by engaging them through self-discovery and higher order thinking skills through visual, kinesthetic, auditory, and tactile experiences.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” At Riverdale Baptist Elementary School we daily strive to guide our students to develop a firm relationship with Jesus Christ. Accepting and understanding that Jesus Christ is at the center of everything perfect and good, as a faculty and staff, it is our primary mission to lead our students to Christ. This is done through daily prayer, implementation of Christian doctrine, open communication, and studying God’s word.

Understanding that it takes a village to raise a child, I am excited to work cooperatively with you as we actively watch the beauty of God’s grace and favor through the children of Riverdale Baptist Elementary School.
