Mrs. Spencer

Hi! I am so excited to be a part of the River Dell Family. We have a fun year ahead full of lots of new adventures. This will mark my nineteenth year of teaching. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a degree in Elementary Education. I believe that every child learns in his/her own way and has the opportunity to experience all of life’s adventures. My goal is to help your child reach his/her full potential and help instill a love for learning.


Welcome to Kindergarten and have great summer! 

Looking forward to a GREAT year 2021-2022 school year!

    We wanted to update all of our morning carpool families, as well as our morning walkers. All students will now enter at the main entrance in the very front of the school rather than at the glass hallways. At this time we do not have staff available to monitor the glass hallway entrances, and safety is our first priority. This will begin for all tomorrow, October 5th.

    Progress reports went home on Friday. Due to a variety of beginning of the year assessments and review, there were not as many grades listed on these progress reports; you will see more on the report cards.
