Hello Parents/Guardians! My name is Deanna Narcisse, and I am thrilled to be the principal at Leo A. Rizzuto Elementary where we Soar Above and Beyond the Expectation! For those of you who are new to Leo A. Rizzuto Elementary, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our campus. This is my seventh year as the principal at Rizzuto, and I was the assistant principal for two years. I am starting my 30th year working in an elementary setting and still love what I do. Leo A. Rizzuto Elementary is a great campus where we have high expectations for every child. I want to assure you that we have a talented group of educators working with your child(ren), and that Leo A. Rizzuto Elementary is a great place to be! Last year, our campus was recognized as a 2017-2018 Texas Honor School for consistent student progress/achievement over time, an honor given to only 8% of campuses in the state of Texas. ChildrenatRisk.org also recognized our campus for being a Grade A school and ranked Leo A. Rizzuto 71st out 892 elementary schools in the Houston area. Our 2018 State Accountability ratings were also high. We were rated an “A” and met standard. Plus, we earned six distinctions on the 2018 STAAR Test in all possible areas which is a challenging feat. We are very proud of these accomplishments and the students and staff responsible. We are looking forward to another successful year with your child(ren).
