Message from the Principal 

Dear Ojibwa Families,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year. We are looking forward to a wonderful year and want to challenge all of our students to demonstrate their personal best and strive for excellence.

I would like to take this opportunity to announce that our assistant principal will be Heather Batko. Heather is a fantastic addition to our staff, and I know you will enjoy working with her as much as we do. The 2016-2017 year is dedicated to setting the stage for excellence. As a parent, you can count on our staff to be committed to your child’s social, emotional and academic success. The Ojibwa Staff will continue to create a welcoming environment for our stakeholders, set high expectations for all learners and provide a high quality education. We look forward to partnering with you throughout the school year.

Our PTO plays a crucial role in making Ojibwa a wonderful place for all of our families. The PTO Back to School Bash is on Saturday, September 10th, from 12:OO PM – 3:00 PM. This event will provide a great opportunity for you to meet other families in the Ojibwa community while you play and have fun. There is no charge for this event. The PTO will once again sponsor a Walk for FUNds on Friday, September 30th to generate additional funds to support the extra activities at Ojibwa. The first PTO meeting is Tuesday, September 13th at 7:00 PM in the media center. This is an excellent opportunity for you to get involved.

If you drive your child to school, please review our parking lot procedures. Parents must park in the designated areas if they plan to walk their child to the entry doors. Please only use the curb side drop off lane if your child can quickly exit the car on the right side next to the curb. If your child requires extra assistance, we ask that you park in the lot and walk them to the doors. Keep in mind that the bus loop must remain safe for our students and cars are not permitted.

Together with our families and students, we are devoted to making this a fantastic school year.

Yours in Education,

Marina Licari
