Principal's Welcome




Dear RES families,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! It is with great pleasure that I begin my sixth year in Greene County Public Schools as the principal here at Ruckersville Elementary School. This year marks my 24th year in elementary education with 18 years of teaching and four years as an assistant principal, and now I look forward to continuing to grow and learn alongside the students and staff here again at RES as principal for a second year. If you are new to our community or school, it will not take you long to realize that this is a special place to be!
We have gotten the 2023-2024 school year off to a grand start with the theme of HERE WE GROW AGAIN!  Each day, students, faculty and staff are encouraged to try new things, take a chance on a new friend and see opportunities as an adventure. Watch for ways that families can get involved with our year-long theme with events with our PTA and also classroom communications.
At RES, everyone wants to see your children reach their full potential in a safe and nurturing environment. I personally look forward to building partnerships with parents and the community. I hope we can work as a team for the best interest of your children. We encourage active parent involvement, so please reach out to your child's teacher via email, call the school if you have any questions, or arrange a parent/teacher conference with faculty. Together we can make this year a success!
Please feel free to contact me any time at 434-939-9006 or by email at

My best,

Mrs. Regina Hissong, M. Ed.
