Mr. Loring's Message
Welcome to OES!!!
Welcome to another exciting school year at Ockerman Elementary School. As I enter in my ninth year as Ockerman's Principal, I am excited about the adventure we are about to continue for the 2013-2014 school year.
Ockerman Elementary is rich in tradition, academic focus, and community involvement, which makes me proud to be a part of this school. As your Principal, I will do my best to uphold the motto; "Looking beyond today, towards tomorrow." The faculty and staff continue to introduce new ideas and programs that are aimed at taking the the students at Ockerman into the 21st Century. The world around us is changing but that does not mean we have to abandon old values that have helped create the wonderful environment, rich in academics, that is established at Ockerman.
We continue to stress the essence of quality within our school and at the same time, reinvigorate the academics, fine arts, and extra-curricular activities. This cannot be done by just one person; it is the culmination of quality work by students, staff, parents, and the community.
Thank you in advance for your partnership for the 2013-2014 school year. Your child’s educational experience is very important to you and the staff at Ockerman Elementary take that responsibility very seriously. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.
