Welcome to Oak Ridge Elementary School of Leadership, Environmental and Health Sciences. I am privileged to work with our students, staff, and families in my second year in District 196. The 2016-17 school year is one of both honoring our past as we celebrate 25 years of excellence, and embracing our future as we begin operating as a magnet school at the start of the school year. Our magnet focus areas allow us to provide a unique experience to learners over their K-5 tenure with us. We strive to provide unique learning experiences that enhance our regular curriculum by adding the lenses of our magnet themes. As you come to know Oak Ridge you will see that we view all of our students as leaders and make it our mission to develop the leadership potential in every learner. We embrace and live our motto each day.
