Welcome to El Rito Elementary! You can find us in El Rito, New Mexico, approximately 50 miles north of Santa Fe. We’re a brand new elementary school in the Mesa Vista Consolidated School District. It is exciting to be a part of a growing school district and we look forward to providing our students with a superb education. 

Our school offers Kindergarten through 6th grade. We are 116 students strong, with a small teacher to student ratio. This allows us to focus on providing an outstanding education for all! Whether you need to contact us, check the school calendar, or want to know about the latest news on campus, we know our Web site will be helpful to you.

We encourage and welcome open communication between home and school. If you ever have any questions, feel free to call or stop by our office. We are always happy to talk to you!

a message from our principal
Dear Parents,

Welcome back to the 2013-2014 school year. I am pleased to announce that I have accepted the appointment of principal of El Rito Elementary. With every new year comes new responsibility and accountability to do the very best for our students. With the changes in education, it is very important that we work as a team to empower our children to reach their potential. Parents, teachers, educational staff, students, administrators, and community members must work together to ensure that all students succeed and are prepared for life outside of the school setting.

I am excited and look forward to a new and exciting year. I promise to give 110% to the children of our school district, and I will do my best to make sure they experience academic, social, and emotional growth. My staff and I have high expectations for your children, and together we will reach our goals. With your help and cooperation, this should be an excellent year.

Please be an active participant in the education of your child/ren, and feel free to drop in anytime; we welcome your ideas and suggestions. We have a PTO that meets once a month to discuss topics and ideas. 

I will do my best to keep you informed of everything that is taking place at our school via our website, school newsletter, and memos. If you have any questions, concerns, or would just like to come by, please do not hesitate to call me at 575-581-4723 ext. 252 or send me an e-mail.

Looking forward to a rewarding and productive school year!

Educationally Yours,
Gina's signiture
Mrs. Gina Terrazas
