Meet Our Principal
Ms. Melissa Bowdoin
It is an honor to introduce myself as the principal of Roy Cloud School and a proud member of this extraordinary school community.
As a seasoned educator, having spent my professional career in both the elementary and middle school sector, I am eager and ready to continue to lead Roy Cloud’s TK-8th grade community and to welcome our new families each year. 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 community members, 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 2023-2024 school year will mark my 18th year in education. I have served many communities in many different capacities. Some roles include: first grade educator, fourth grade educator, middle school science and DesignThinking educator, Curriculum Specialist, Athletic Director, Dean of Students, Teachers Union President, and as Principal. Teaching holds a very special place in my heart, but it is the position of 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.
