Principal's Message

My name is Stephanie Paynter and I am both honored and proud to serve alongside the families and teachers of Richardsville Elementary during the 2022-2023 school year.  Partnering together, we can help foster positive relationships to build the most successful student leaders in our district. As we go through this time of uncertainty, I can assure you that we are working hard to stay connected and deliver the best possible instruction while students are learning either from home or here in-person at school. Our teachers and staff are dedicated to helping students become college and/career ready leaders. 

This is the start of my 25th year in education all of which have been with Warren County Public Schools. It is a privilege to get to lead in such an amazing school which values safety, achievement, and opportunities for all students.  When not at school, I am the proud wife of Chris, as well as, mom to two amazing daughters, Audrey and Avery.  Our family loves to travel to new places, enjoy time outside, and be with our friends and family! 

I look forward to meeting your family soon as we begin this next adventure together! Open communication and a home-school connection are very important and I encourage you to reach out to me or one of our staff members when you have a question or an idea to share. We will always be a welcoming school where students learn and continue to grow as Bobcat leaders.   Together, we can make this the best school year ever!


Best wishes,


Stephanie Paynter
