Welcome to Occoquan Elementary School. Let me start by saying that itis an honor and privilege to be the Assistant Principal at OES! My goalis to serve as a positive role model demonstrating respect for therights of all people, as well as to promote the value of an education.
My vision is to continue to value education by providing all of ourstudents with the best opportunity to learn and develop their totalselves. To accomplish this, we will establish a climate that sets highstandards not only for academics, but for behavior and respect forothers, as well.
Research is now proving what educators have always known, and that isthat students whose parents are actively involved in their education atschool and at home, do significantly better academically. With thisthought in mind, I encourage every parent to get involved in yourchild's education in any way possible. Joining the PTA, serving as achaperone on field trips, volunteering for class projects, attendingschool sponsored activities are just some of the ways you candemonstrate to your child that their education is important to you.
I welcome the opportunity to meet parents and community members todiscuss the various programs and strategies utilized here at OES. Yourchildren and our students are the future; by working together we canensure that they are well prepared to thrive in this constantly changingtechnological world.
