Welcome to Elementary

Kindergarten- Fourth Grade

Greetings Eagle Families:

It is an honor to be the elementary principal at Traders Point Christian Schools. As our mission states, Traders Point Christian Academy is a school that challenges and educates students within a framework of a Biblical worldview while leading them to a personal faith and transformed life in Jesus Christ. Our parents and staff are dedicated to providing a quality education, while creating personal relationships with our Eagles, their families, and our surrounding community while leading others to a life dedicated to serving our Creator.

As a spiritual leader, it is my role to see that each student is provided with a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, socially, and spiritually. It is my desire as the K-4 principal to help students and teachers meet their fullest potential by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. My personal belief is that leadership consists of painting pictures of the future, creating goals as a team, listening to responses, and helping the community choose which pictures are the best for TPCA and our Eagles as individuals.

As an academic leader, I am actively involved in engaging our Eagles so that they become active participants in their own education. Research shows students learn best when involved in the learning process. When students are empowered to take charge of their own education, they learn how to work more efficiently than if they are simply told what to do. By developing relationships with our Eagles, their teachers and families, and through the data collection process, we are able to individualize instruction that best meets the needs of all learners.

Breaking down barriers through open communication is one of the most rewarding and effective, components to leadership. There is significant power in teams and partnerships; they bring the collective wisdom of the group to bear on a problem. When synergy is present, creative solutions emerge. Therefore, as a member of Traders Point Christian Schools and the surrounding community, I will model collaboration; I will facilitate teamwork with the staff and develop partnerships within the department of education.

My prayer each day is that with guidance from our Lord and Savior, we are able to help each Eagle maximize their academic and spiritual growth in a positive, respectful, and Christ-centered environment that promotes academic progress as well as develops personal relationship with Christ.

We will learn to “Walk in Wisdom” this year; we will seek God’s favor each day and we covet your prayers.

As always, if you have a question, concern, or would like to meet for prayer, do not hesitate to contact me.

In His service,

Angela Ruiz, Ed.S.
