Principal's Message

Hello, Lil Pickers,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. My name is Rachel Neff and I am the proud, new principal at Robert Driscoll, Jr. Elementary School in Robstown ISD. I am entering my 16th year in education.
Let me start by saying thank you for your support and understanding as we continue to navigate these unexpected times. I am so proud of the way RDE staff, students, parents, and community have handled the demands we are faced with to protect everyone as we continue to educate our students.
I am privileged to have the opportunity to work in Robstown ISD.  I feel honored to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful students, and all of the supportive parents. The elementary years are critical times of development for students & families, and I look forward to working with all of you to make this school year successful.
Our theme for the 2020-2021 school year is "I Believe…I will succeed despite challenges.” We know we will get though all challenges, learn and grow, and be college ready. Our staff has planned activities around our theme to promote more student engagement, increase school spirit and improve our overall climate and morale. Our campus team wants to make these activities wonderful learning experiences for everyone because we are so excited that you are here!
We want to make sure that all of our students and parents feel connected to our school so please continue to check for updates on this website as well as our social media pages on Facebook.
