Welcome Message

Greetings Officer Elementary Family,

Together with our teachers, staff, and assistant principal ,it is our honor and a pleasure to welcome you to the 2023 – 2024 school year! We hope you all have had a relaxing and fun summer break. I am extremely proud to return  as the Principal of this amazing learning community. I am excited about all that this new school year has to offer and look forward to working collectively as a family to ensure that our students are provided with the best educational experience possible to be critical thinkers, responsible citizens , and prepared to be successful in all their future endeavors.

This year we will renew our commitment to excellence in all that we do, with a resolute expectation that all students can learn and succeed. We will continue to provide our students with opportunities to address academic deficiencies, to build numeracy and literacy skills.  We will continue to implement initiatives to promote teaching and learning, and to engage all our stakeholders in the process of educating our students.

Our enthusiastic and committed teachers have been working during the summer in planning sessions, attending professional development, and getting our classrooms ready.  I am confident that together we will have a productive and enriching 2023-2024 school year!

Our school will be stronger with the support of its community. We invite you to take advantage of the opportunities to support our students’ learning and experiences. We look forward to meeting and working with you this academic school year. One of our first events will be our Open House Thursday, August 10, 2023, from 3:00-5:00 pm. We will keep you updated on  any additional information and events. 

Please continue to navigate through the district and school website weekly for return school information.
