It is both an honor and a privilege to serve as the first Principal in the history of Oak Grove High School.
Serving as your Principal is an opportunity and responsibility that I take very seriously. I am committed to establishing a positive and safe school environment, and to challenging and supporting teachers and students to reach their full potential in the classroom, in their extracurricular endeavors, and in the community.
As your Principal, I have enjoyed the opportunity to begin the process of establishing relationships with students, parents, teachers, and community members. I look forward to continuing to build upon those relationships, and to strengthening partnerships, in an effort to provide our students with the best educational experience possible.
At Oak Grove High School, we are committed to excellence and to setting the bar high in all areas. Our faculty and staff are focused on serving as positive role models and to providing students with a variety of challenges, resources, and leadership opportunities as they work together to prepare for college and careers. By setting high standards and expectations for all students, our goal is to cultivate well-rounded individuals who are committed to excellence, global relevance, and productive citizenship.
We are extremely proud of the efforts we have made as a school community in our first year at Oak Grove High School. Together, we have worked to build a solid foundation that will lead to programs of excellence in the classroom and in a wide variety of extracurricular areas. Already, we have begun to see the fruits of our labor, as our students have achieved in the classroom, represented our school in athletics, excelled in the Fine Arts, and taken on leadership roles through a variety of extracurricular opportunities. Already, we have experienced many firsts and many milestones. As we continue to grow and mature as a school, we are excited at those milestones that still lie ahead, and the customs and traditions that we will have the opportunity to build upon and establish.
As a school community, we are building something special. Working TOGETHER, we have established a culture and environment that is based upon excellence, achievement, and opportunity. Working TOGETHER, we have established customs and traditions that are unique to OGHS. Working TOGETHER, we have established a bond. We all share a sense of Grizzly Pride, and are honored to “BeOG”.
As a faculty and staff, we are excited about the possibilities that the 2018-2019 school year represents. We are excited about “Year Two” at Oak Grove High School, building upon an already strong foundation, and the continued journey that lies ahead. We embrace the challenge…and the opportunity. We look forward to working together with students to build upon the work that has already been done, and to continue to establish customs and traditions that are unique to OGHS. We look forward to the many “firsts” that continue to lie ahead. We look forward to strengthening the partnerships that have already been established with students, parents, and community members. And, we look forward to continuing to make history TOGETHER!
#BeOG…and Go Grizzlies!
