Principal's Corner

Welcome to OES

I am excited about a new school year at Opp Elementary! This will be my fourth year as principal and I look forward to many great things for the 2019-20 school year. Teachers and staff have been busy preparing classrooms and school for an exciting year of learning and growth. We are looking forward to hearing about your summer adventures, connecting with returning families, and meeting our newest Bobcats. This will be our fourth full year of the implementation of The Leader in Me! Hopefully, your child will come home daily excited about this new journey and you as a parent can be part of this process too. If you would like more information on The Leader in Me, please visit  

We believe that open communication is vital to the educational process between school and home. I ask for your support and participation in this effort by sending your child to school every day, encouraging her/him to read for pleasure every night, monitoring homework and progress, and asking your child to share what they learned at school each day. Our school community is successful due to our highly qualified staff, talented students and caring, involved families and community members. I have an open door policy at OES and if you need to speak to me please feel free to come by or call at 334-493-6031.
