Welcome to Oak Ridge Elementary website. My name is Cindy Magnuson and I am proud to be the principal of an outstanding school where student success is at the heart of all of our work. This is my first year at Oak Ridge. I have spent nearly all of my educational career in Wisconsin where I was a classroom teacher, elementary principal, and program director in early childhood. I am thrilled to be a part of the Oak Ridge team and school community.
2015-16 will be an exciting year for Oak Ridge families, staff, and community. We will be planning for our transition to a Magnet School. Leadership, along with STEM areas of focus in environmental and health sciences, have been chosen as the themes for our magnet school. I am excited about the opportunities that this year of planning offers for collaboration between staff, parents and community. We need parents and community members to be a part of the planning process. This is our school and together we can achieve so much. Please watch for communication in August and September and let us know if you are willing to be a part of this very important planning year.
I look forward to meeting you during our Summer Assessment days on August 25th and 26th. Please stop by and introduce yourself and your family. In addition, I invite you to join our PTO at Oak Ridge. Our PTO works tirelessly to support the needs of our school and children. Please come and be a part of this fabulous group. You can witness some of the benefits of the work of PTO as you see new playground equipment being added to the Oak Ridge playground.
