Welcome to Ogden Elementary School!
It’s back-to-school time and we anticipate a great start thanks to an entire community, including teachers, parents, students and a host of employees and volunteers. Every job is important and great things happen when we work together for the success of the students. Ogden Elementary School was nominated this spring as a National Blue Ribbon School. We await the good news in Mid-September from the U.S. Department of Education confirming what we already believe to be true!
Research shows that regardless of race, educational level, or socio-economic status, if parents are active at school their children achieve at higher levels. We want to offer you some opportunities to be active at your child’s school:
We have an active Parent/Teacher Organization that has supported our school goals of improving reading, math, and parental involvement. We have a Site Council active in advising the school on numerous issues. Both are opportunities to serve the school and demonstrate to your children the value of parental involvement. Thanks to all who serve! We will have many family evenings and volunteer opportunities throughout the year. We look forward to working with you!
We will have one major change – Head Start will be joining us at Ogden Elementary! We will begin with a half day program, but hope to expand soon to full-day service. Please call the school if you have a qualifying student who can use a head start!
Thanks for doing all you can to help the school and your child be successful.
Your partner in education,
Mr. Jim Armendáriz
