I am looking forward to partnering with you as we embark on an exciting new school year. I am very happy to be part of the Orrs Elementary family. This is my fourth year at Orrs and I am very excited about the new goals we have set for the year.
I am deeply committed to ensuring that we develop every child to his or her fullest potential in a safe, nurturing, and highly engaging learning environment. Orrs Elementary is a National School of Character and we want to instill in our students the morals and values that will help to make them a positive contribution to society. We will also instill the pursuit of excellence into our students so that they become leaders and responsible citizens of our community and world.
I want to make this year a great year and I know together we can make a difference in the lives of the students we serve each day. Let's work together to continue to make Orrs Elementary a leader in academic excellence.
At home, I urge you to be active in your child’s education. Encourage them to read outside of the scope of what is required of him/her throughout the school day. As we continue to teach the Common Core Standards, the amount, and rigor of outside reading will greatly contribute to your child’s success, not only in school, but in the world outside of the classroom.
