A message from Principal Price
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to Rita M. Marquez Elementary and Anton Chico Middle School! It is an honor and privilege to serve as the principal of both schools. I am committed to continuing the wonderful traditions that bring out the best in every child and family while looking for new ways to celebrate who we are and what makes us so unique.
Strong schools are the foundation of a strong community. I believe in the potential of all of our students and am committed to helping them reach their potential. Our job here at school requires teamwork, dedication and collaboration, and that extends beyond our school and students to the entire community. Our collective goal is to make this a successful year that is challenging and rigorous, but success of the student cannot be fully achieved without the support of families and your diligence to ensure that students are responsible in meeting their obligations. If there’s one thing that is constant, it’s change! We at Anton Chico schools believe in, and are constantly working on, continuous improvement based on the latest research and information. It also means that we must raise the bar of expectation so our children can compete in a world that depends on highly educated constituents. I am very proud of the dedication of ALL our staff to make this a reality. It is my personal goal to be a positive, enthusiastic leader and work collaboratively with everyone to ensure our students benefit from the best educational experience possible.
If you have any questions, or if we can be of assistance, please feel free to call us at (575) 427-6038.
Mrs. Sumner Price, Principal
