On behalf of myself and the entire staff at the Ouchi- O'Donovan 6-12 complex, I would like to welcome you and your children to what we hope will be another amazing and enriching school year!
Our complex's excellent teaching staff and support personnel want to ensure that every child succeeds. Our goal is to support and encourage each child in achieving his/her optimum potential by instilling in them an intrinsic sense of worth, curiosity and love of learning. If there is something going on that you feel
may impact your child's success or focus at school, please communicate with your child's teacher, myself, or any other staff member. We are all here to support you and your student in the pursuit of excellence.
Being actively involved in your child's education is essential in developing a strong partnership between home and school. Whether you are working full-time or stay at home, make sure you take time everyday to connect and be present with your child. Talk to your child about what they are doing in school, have your child read to you, provide a quiet place to do homework everyday, and help your child stay organized! We are a school where everyone shares in the responsibility for the success of every one of our students. We cannot do it alone!
O’Donovan's vision is to provide “enriching, meaningful learning experiences in a safe and supportive learning environment.” We are truly excited to offer our students this year the opportunity to be part of our new after-school All Stars Program. This outstanding program is essential in supporting our school.
Their efforts provide many after school activities and support our academic programs.
As your principal, I am truly excited to be a part of such a rich and diverse educational community. I am proud with the quality of education that occurs at this school and I am confident that it will continue throughout this exciting 2016-2017 school year! I look forward to working with each of you and creating partnerships that will last for many years to come. Here's to a strong year of teamwork, community building, inclusion, and a commitment to do our best and be our best for Ouchi-O'Donovan 6-12 complex's amazing student population.
