Principal's Welcome

Greetings Glenwood Elementary Community,


I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year.

My name is Jason Richardson, and I am thrilled to be your new principal. It is with great excitement that I am returning to San Rafael City Schools. It was within the San Rafael City Schools district that I began my career as an educator 17 years ago, teaching at Coleman and then at Davidson. For the past 4 years I have served as Principal of Bolinas-Stinson School. Prior to that I was Principal of Manor Elementary School in Fairfax, where I live with my wife and two daughters. I feel a strong sense of homecoming as your new principal, even though I am new and unknown to the Glenwood community, and I feel tremendous gratitude for the warm welcome that I have already received.


I am really enthusiastic about this terrific opportunity to serve your beautiful community. Within these words that I write, I pledge to you my full attention, energy and willingness to help you and the children of the Glenwood community in whatever way that I am able.

I firmly believe that all of us as educators have the duty to serve the needs of all the children in our community in a way that improves our local community and the greater society in which we are all members.  When we foster in our children the capacity to think, feel and communicate in ways that are productive, positive, and peaceful, our local community and our greater society improve.  We all benefit when we teach our children to care for themselves and others and to respect the learning, growth and development of each one of us while respecting our environment.


With great joy and enthusiasm I am looking forward to the coming school year. I wish to communicate to you that my office door is open and I want to get to know you. You can always call the school office at 485-2430 or email me at  

We have an amazing school. I look forward to collaboratively supporting the excellent teaching and programs already in place and pursuing the community and district goals for continuous improvement to meet the academic and social-emotional needs of all of our students. I am counting on your participation in this process. This is going to be a year full of positive growth and learning for us all.
