Meet Our Principal
Ms. Melissa Bowdoin
It is an honor to introduce myself as the new principal of Roy Cloud School and to join this extraordinary school community. I hope that this note finds you enjoying the remaining days of summer and that you and your children are looking forward to beginning a wonderful school year together in just a few weeks.
I come to Roy Cloud School as a seasoned educator. Having spent my professional career in both the elementary and middle school sector, I am feeling eager and ready to lead Roy Cloud’s K-8th grade community. In addition to my role as an educator, I am first and foremost a person who cherishes relationships. I look forward to cultivating strong bonds with all stakeholders, and getting to know you and your children as valued members of this wonderful community. Roy Cloud is a stellar school. A school I am so proud to be a part of. I look forward to introducing myself and my family to the many wonderful people that call Roy Cloud “home.”
The 2022-2023 school year will mark my 17th year in education. I have served many communities in many different capacities. Some roles include: first grade teacher, fourth grade teacher, middle school teacher, Curriculum Specialist, Athletic Director, DesignThinking Specialist, Dean of Students, Teachers Union President, and most recently as Principal in the Woodside School District. Teaching holds a very special place in my heart, but it is in my position as a school leader where I have been most fulfilled in my life’s work. The role of principal provides me the chance to work collaboratively with teachers on a daily basis, while also remaining connected to the students, and their families. I firmly believe that the partnership between home and school helps to build confidence in our students to use their strengths and skills to shape their future and the future of our local and global community.
