K2: From the Principal's Desk
August 2, 2021
Welcome to OVCA!
Summer is coming to an end, and the 2021-2022 school year will officially start on August 10th! I hope everyone had a fun and safe summer. This is such an exciting time of year as teachers prepare for welcoming a new group of students and as students receive materials, set up computers, their school space, and get ready to begin a new school year. We are thrilled to have you as a part of our school this year!
My name is Karin Campbell, and this year I will serve as the Kindergarten-2nd grade Principal for OVCA. This will be my 9th school year with OVCA. I have served as a teacher, interventionist, lead teacher, assistant principal, and now your principal.
Meet the teacher will be August 4th and 5th. Your child’s homeroom teacher will be hosting sessions these two days to build connections and community in their classrooms. Students will have the opportunity to get to know their classmates and their teacher. You will find the links to these sessions in your student’s class connect list.
The school calendar is below for reference. This website is the OVCA Hub. Much of the information you will need this year will be posted and updated throughout the school year. There is even a search feature, so if you know you are looking for a certain thing (such as the school calendar or the grading policy), then you can search for keywords to be taken to that information. This search feature is located at the very bottom of the OVCA Hub homepage.
Live class connects with the homeroom teacher will occur in the morning or afternoon for both Math and Reading. Please contact your homeroom teacher if you need to change from morning to afternoon, or from afternoon to morning.
2021-2022 is going to be an exciting school year! Thank you for choosing to spend it with OVCA.
Mrs. Karin Campbell

These are taken live in class with the teacher. As a public school-we are required to give the assessment three times a year.

The assessment results will be sent to the parent after each assessment window. Teachers will use the data to personalize learning for your student.
