Welcome to Orange Avenue School!

Grades PK-5

It is with excitement that I begin my work as the new principal of Orange Avenue School.  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition that has produced so many outstanding students.

We are so excited for the first day of school on August  29th! Over the summer the custodial staff has been working hard to get our school looking great. Over the past few days, teachers have been engaged in professional learning to prepare for the upcoming school year. 

Over the course of this year, to work to gain a deeper understanding of the school community.  It is clear that there is a strong partnership between all stakeholders to provide the best possible academic experience for our students.  I look forward to fostering these relationships and working with teachers and staff to provide an exceptional educational experience for each child.

My door is always open and I welcome your input.  Please feel free to stop in, call or email me to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!

Can't wait to see all our our Lions on August 29th!
