What I love most about working at Rice Elementary: 
I am so thankful that our family was led to Wellington and Rice Elementary is one of the many reasons. Not only do I have the privilege of being on staff at Rice but all four of my own children attend Rice. I think of Rice as being a safe place that cares about the whole well being of the students that attend. It feels like the hub of the Wellington Community or like family. I am blessed to be a part of something so magical and unique.
