Principal's Message

Welcome to Olive Elementary, home of the Ocelots! As the principal, I am honored to work with such a dedicated team of educators and families. At Olive Elementary, we strive to provide a rigorous academic program that challenges students to reach beyond their personal expectations, and where students are encouraged to take risks and accept new challenges every day. With the support of our families and community, Olive Elementary provides a well-rounded educational program for our students.

Here at Olive, students R.O.A.R. with pride! Our Ocelots pledge to be Respectful, On-task, and Act Safe and Responsible in everything they do. Our student leadership team, the Oceleaders, work with the school community to provide opportunities to recognize students for their decisions to ROAR. They also work as a team to plan spirit events and rallies that keep our school ROARing with pride!

I am excited to continue my work with the teachers and community to build on the college and career readiness that is already very present at Olive Elementary! As an AVID Elementary Showcase School, Olive’s goal is to prepare students for 21st Century learning and success, in the classroom and in life beyond their elementary school years. With our 1:1 device implementation, 21st Century STEAM lessons, our ever increasing use of instructional technology, and Olive's focus on the whole child, Olive teachers and support staff are committed to continued improvement for all students. This is just the beginning, and we are looking forward to watching our students grow into innovative, confident, and responsible learners and citizens.

Excellence! Every student! Every Day!

Go Ocelots!
