Academy 5th Grade Tours (Juniata County)



Greetings from East Juniata Elementary School!
It is an honor to serve as principal at East Juniata Elementary School, and I am excited about our adventure together as our new school builds new friendships and educational opportunities.  Having served in several buildings in the district over the years, I look forward to continuing to build relationships with our wonderful students, families, teachers, and talented staff.    
As the practice has been in all of the schools, at EJES we will continue our commitment to helping all of our students develop their academic and social skills so they will be prepared to meet the demands associated with living in our ever-changing global society.  
At EJES, our qualified and dedicated staff will provide a safe and nurturing student-centered atmosphere which fosters respect for individual differences.  We strive to make the learning process positive and rewarding while instilling a desire for lifelong learning and excellence.  
I am also very excited about working with the parents who make EJES a wonderful place for our students to learn and grow.  I look forward to doing whatever I can to support their efforts and encourage you to become a member of the Home and School Association.  Volunteering and participating at various events throughout the school year will benefit not only your child, but all of the children of EJES.
Please know that I am available to discuss any questions or concerns related to serving you and the children of East Juniata Elementary School.  
Everyone at East Juniata Elementary School is looking forward to a productive and rewarding remainder of the school year as we work with your child and family.
Valerie Ricedorf, Principal
