Message from Our Prinicpal

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students, 

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year at Rowayton School. I can’t wait to hear about the students’ summer. For returning families, I look forward to seeing you all and continuing to serve you, your children and the entire Rowayton community in my new role as principal. For new families, I am excited to meet you and your child, and know that we are all here to support your child as they transition to a new school. I am truly honored to lead Rowayton and look forward to positively impacting every students’ performance and overall school experience.

I am very happy to introduce you to our new Curriculum and Instruction Site Director, Mrs. Nancy Caron. Mrs. Caron comes to us with 14 years of experience as a classroom teacher, math specialist, and mathematics professor. She is looking forward to working with the entire school community to support the academic and social growth of each Rowayton student. 

At Rowayton School, you will find an outstanding, exceptionally talented, and highly qualified group of dedicated professionals who are committed to working together to ensure that every child continues growing and learning. The faculty and staff of Rowayton School have high expectations for all students. This year, we will continue to strive for success as we implement the motto: “Every Child, Every Day, Whatever It Takes.” 

We invite you to share our vision of educational excellence by joining other parents as one of our volunteers, becoming a member of the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), participating on the School Governance Council (SGC), or other committees. Please visit our PTA website for more information. You may also visit our school website: Facebook page: Twitter account: @RowaytonElem for the most current information regarding events at our school.  

I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you, starting with the Popsicle Picnic on August 22. You will find that my door is always open and I am always here to support you in any possible way. Feel free to email me with any thoughts or concerns at

Sincerely,  Rob

Robert Pennington
