Greetings, Ravenswood!

It is with great excitement that I introduce myself as the newly selected interim principal of Ravenswood Elementary School. There has been much anticipation around the new principal selection, and I can assure you that I am committed to wholeheartedly serving the Ravenswood students, staff, and families as we navigate this time of transition. Change is hard, but change is also necessary to grow. I’m excited about the path ahead. 

 I have heard many wonderful stories about Ravenswood–the diversity and wit of the students, the amazing teacher leadership, and the robust parent involvement. I can’t wait to meet each of you. I am eager to bring my passion and skills as an educational leader to Ravenswood, and to partner with you to ensure the success of our children.

I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than sixteen years. My most recent administrative experience has been shaped by seven years of successful leadership as the assistant principal at Belding Elementary School. I was also a school principal for three years in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I value relationships, academic excellence for all, the arts, and social and emotional learning and well-being. JOY is also very important to me. 

I am in the process of creating an entry plan for my first 30, 60, and 90 days at Ravenswood. The plan will include gathering information and building relationships with various stakeholders. 

Please feel free to contact me at psingleton@cps.edu with questions, comments, or concerns. E-mail is the best mode of communication for me during the summer. Let's set up a time to talk by phone or meet in person. Your feedback is valuable.

 Thank you for the opportunity to serve in this role. I am thrilled to be at Ravenswood. I commit to partnering with you. Enjoy your summer!


Patrina Singleton, Ravenswood Interim Principal
