Principal's Message

Dear Shoal Creek Family and Community,

It is my pleasure to welcome everyone back to an exciting year of learning opportunities! As the newly appointed principal of Shoal Creek Elementary School, I am deeply humbled to serve our school and community. I am a proud educator with over 20 years of educational experience. I began my career as an ESOL teacher in Alabama and then moved to Georgia to pursue my passion in teaching Spanish in Atlanta Public Schools. Later, I desired a change and became a classroom teacher where I have taught all grade levels in elementary school. My zeal for student growth led me to transition to leadership four years ago as an assistant principal in Rockdale County Public Schools. Now, I am ready to lead, what I consider, the best elementary school in Georgia!

Our teachers have worked diligently to prepare their rooms and lessons to ensure students have a safe and productive learning environment. Additionally, we aim to engage our students by using research-based instructional strategies to ensure they are learning at high levels. We believe that all students are at the helm of all we do; therefore, we pledge to support them and the community as we learn and grow collectively.

In that, parents, we are asking that you have regular check-ins with your child and his/her teachers continually. We will continue to use the Remind app to communicate with our stakeholders, but I also implore you to inform your teacher of additional ways to effectively communicate with you. In conjunction with Remind, you may also find pertinent information on our school’s website,, Facebook at Shoal Creek Elementary/RCPS, or Twitter @SCESTEAMAcademy. Also, do not forget to join us for Open House on July 27, 2023, from 5pm – 7pm. During Open House, you will have an opportunity to sign up for PTA membership, MORE (after school program), meet your child’s teacher, and more!

IMPORTANT UPDATES: Parents must complete their Annual Update for students to receive their school-issued laptop/device. Please CLICK HERE for information on setting up or accessing your Infinite Campus Parent Portal.

If you have not already done so, please complete your free/reduced lunch application soon. Additional information can be found on our RCPS website. School Meals - Rockdale County Public Schools (

RCPS students are required to carry clear bookbags only. For more information regarding our clear bookbag policy, CLICK HERE.

I am honored to serve Shoal Creek as principal where we are navigating the S.E.A.s (Serving in Excellence Always). It is a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers and students truly care for one another and strive to build relationships conducive to supporting academic and social growth. Please feel free to contact me via email: [email protected] or 770-929-1430.


Here to serve,

Keyaneshia Richmond
