Principal's Page


It is a great honor to be the principal of Warrior Ridge Elementary School, where a dedicated staff and supportive parents work together to provide an array of positive experiences for children.  The Warrenton community is truly a special one, where neighbors help neighbors, and life-long friendships develop.  It is a community where parents send children to school eager to learn and grow.

I wanted to share a little information about myself.  I will be starting my 29th year at Warren County R-III. I have served the Warren County School District as a principal for the last 19 years. It was an honor to receive the Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce 2019 Educator of the Year Award.  I feel very privileged to have worked with thousands of students, parents, and staff.  My goal is to make a difference each and every day.  My favorite part of the day is being with the children. They never cease to amaze me with their take on life, their personal growth and their creativity.  They are fun to be with and teach me many “life” lessons.  Their growth and accomplishments are extremely rewarding. 

Our school’s culture and climate are predicated on the “BIG 3” – Being Safe, Being Responsible, and Being Respectful.  These guiding expectations govern every facet of school operations and interpersonal interactions.  Warrior Ridge Elementary earned the honor of being a National Model PLC School and a Gold Level PBS School.

We will provide research-based learning that is rooted in developmentally sound practices.  The social, emotional, and intellectual well-being of your children will be given utmost consideration. Our mission is to help each child achieve his or her full potential. 

On behalf of the Warrior Ridge Staff, I would like to thank you for the opportunity to work with you and your children.  Whenever the need arises, please feel free to contact me.  Your questions, concerns and/or suggestions and feedback are always welcome.  I know your family’s experiences at Warrior Ridge Elementary will be rewarding and hopefully these experiences will be cherished for many years to come.

Yours in Education,

Bobbie L. Russell
