Tara Rolle named principal of St. Raymond School

Tara Rolle, formerly the assistant principal and director of admissions at Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward, is the new principal of St. Raymond, the K-8 Catholic school in Menlo Park.

She took the post Aug. 1, succeeding Sister Ann Bernard, who was principal at St. Raymond for 16 years.

Born and raised in Atherton, Ms. Rolle received a doctorate in educational leadership, administration and policy from Pepperdine University in June 2011, a master's degree in educational leadership from Santa Clara University, and a bachelor of arts degree in theater education from UCLA.

Among her challenges this year is to further integrate technology into classrooms and increase professional development of teachers, the school said in announcing her appointment.

"Catholic education is fundamentally important because it aims to educate the whole student — heart and mind," Ms. Rolle said in the announcement. "In a world where our children are being inundated with messages that may or may not align with our values, creating a community where we call ourselves back to compassion, kindness and service is imperative."

St. Raymond School, which has 245 students enrolled, is located at 1211 Arbor Road in Menlo Park.
