From Principal Ricky Bucher
Dear F.M. Day families, It is with a heavy heart and mixed feelings that I write to inform you that I am leaving the wonderful F.M. Day community to accept a job promotion to become an upper level administrator for the Greeley Public School District. I am so lucky to have had the privilege of meeting and working with so many of you over the past three years and it was a difficult decision. While I am excited that I have fulfilled a lifelong goal and dream of mine, I am also extremely sad to say goodbye. For me, this school has been like a second home and the students, the community, and the families have been such a pleasure to work with.
Rest assured that as I finish the school year, my promise to you is that I will continue to work extremely hard for our students, our staff, and of course our amazing parents. I can assure you that the Westminster Public School District and the F.M. Day staff members will always put your students first no matter who sits in the Principal’s office.
Our students are hard-working, capable learners, and you parents have always been so supportive, friendly, and caring. I will always cherish the time spent at this school learning with all of you!
The selection process for the new Principal is underway and our Westminster Public School Leaders are already working with our staff to initiate a collaborative process which will honor parent involvement in the selection. I trust that you will make the new Principal feel as welcome as I did when I arrived at F.M. Day three years ago.
Thank you for allowing me to help educate your children and for treating me with so much respect. I will miss you all so much, but I promise to visit and check on everyone next year.
Mr. Rick Bucher
F. M. Day Elementary School Principal
