Principal's Message

  • Principal Faulkner It is a pleasure and a privilege for me to serve the Ross Valley School District and be a member our wonderful Wade Thomas community. Our school is a caring, respectful, and loving place with a reputation for academic excellence. Our outstanding staff is committed to getting to know each child as an individual and supporting them socially, emotionally and academically in the way they learn best.

    Community involvement is a hallmark of Wade Thomas School; we encourage families to become active members of our school community. There are many ways to become involved: helping out in your child’s classroom, volunteering for the many community building events and enrichment activities sponsored by the Wade Thomas Parent Association, and supporting the YES Foundation which brings the Art, Music and Library programs to our students.


    We look forward to getting to know you and your children and working together to help them develop a love of learning, confidence in their abilities, wonder and respect of the world around them, and become responsible citizens and independent life-long learners. To that end, our door is always open for you to share concerns, ideas, or just to say hello.

    With warm regards,
    Donna Faulkner
