Dear Parents and Students:
On behalf of the entire staff at Oakridge High School, I would like to welcome you and your student to the 2012-2013 school year. On a personal note, it is both an honor and a privilege to begin this year as the Principal of Oakridge High School. I was excited to come to Oakridge for many of the same reasons that you may have been. The Oakridge community truly is a tight-knit family that is focused on doing whatever it takes to make both the students and school successful.
The dedication of the entire Oakridge school community has most recently been shown by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) findings, which recognized Oakridge High School as a “Reward School”. This distinction places Oakridge High School among “the top 5 percent of schools in the state making the greatest gains in student achievement” (MDE, 2012). I look forward to working with the staff and students to continue their efforts to reach the highest levels of academic success.
OHS truly appreciates the continued support provided so unselfishly by our parents, community members, and local businesses. We pledge to continue to work hard to make our academic and extracurricular programs even stronger to ensure our students are successful and prepared for the future. We hope you enjoy learning more about Oakridge High School as you visit our website. If you have any questions, or if there is any way that we can make this a better year for you or your student, please don’t hesitate to contact me at: email@example.com.
