Dear Osgood Students and Families,
I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2018-2019 School Year! For those of you who are new to our school, I want you to know that you are coming to an absolutely wonderful place. Iam so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. Our teachers and staff are caring, innovative, and always learning something new for the benefit of your children. We are a collaborative and driven group of educators who strive to have our students reach their highest potential. I hope all of our students and families are enjoying a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children.
All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff is already planning and preparing for your child(ren). Our enthusiastic office team is registering new families, ordering needed materials and updating student files. Our hard working and conscientious custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning the facility. Also our much-appreciated PAT (parent organization) is gearing up to welcome families, provide
volunteer opportunities, and offer other exciting events and programs. We are indeed a joyous and caring community with the common goals of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting high-level learning.
We look forward to a very positive and productive year together! We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible. Please know that we highly value communication here at Osgood Elementary. It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school
activities, as well as other events and happenings. I believe that building strong relationships between home and school is a key factor in increasing student achievement. As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. I strongly believe that parental involvement is an essential component to student success, as research continues to show strong correlation between increased involvement and high student success.
Here are a few Key items to remember as we embark on the school year:
School Hours: 8:05 a.m. - 3:20 p.m.
In the interest of safety, please do not drop off your children before 7:30 a.m. as there is no supervision before that time. Also, please be sure to pick up your children by 3:40 p.m. in the afternoon.
Our school day begins at 8:05 a.m. every day. Please be sure to have your child/children here on time. Students who are consistently tardy are at a clear disadvantage and usually arrive feeling frantic and unprepared. All students who arrive after 8:10 am must sign in at the office with a parent. If your child will not be present, please call and inform the office at (308) 535-7144 .
All students will have the opportunity to receive FREE breakfast daily. Breakfast is served in the cafeteria starting at 7:35 -7:55 a.m. Breakfast is an important start to our students’ day.
School Supply List:
School supply lists for each grade level are available in the office and also posted on our school’s website: http://www.nppsd.org (under students & parents tab)
