Greetings everyone! As the new principal of the Orange Grove Elementary School, I would like to personally thank you for visiting our campus’ website. I trust that this technology tool will be user-friendly and will help keep all our educational stakeholders—that is, our students, parents, community members, and staff members, well informed in regards to the various aspects of our campus during the 2016-17 school year. If you cannot find the information that you are looking for on our campus website, I would like to encourage you to give us a courtesy phone call. Our friendly campus staff would be more than happy to answer any questions that you might have. And at the same time, your phone call will help us to continuously improve our website for future patrons. Having said that, I would like to share with everyone that our campus goal this 2016-17 school year is to continue to build on what our campus accomplished last school year—that is, in student achievement and all other aspects of the campus. Our campus vision is to be an educational setting in which: (1) teachers are able to teach to the level that will prepare our students for success during and after their elementary school years; (2) students are able to learn to the level of mastery needed to be successful during and after their elementary school years; (3) teachers and students respect and work well with each other; (4) students consistently behave appropriately and make good decisions; (5) students are consistently dressed according to our dress code; (6) students consistently attend school; and (7) students are successful in their extracurricular activities in and out of school. Please note that I do acknowledge that our campus vision is somewhat idealistic in nature. Nevertheless, if every educational stakeholder strives daily to realize such ideals, then together we can effectively educate our students and equip them with the knowledge and skills that they will need to be successful in their future educational endeavors way after their elementary school memories are the only echoes that can be heard in our hallways.
Proud To Be Your Child’s Principal,
Mr. Arnold Diaz
Orange Grove Elementary School
