A Message from Our Principal

Welcome to Otto-Eldred Elementary School! 

It is my honor to work with the students, staff, parents, and community of the Otto-Eldred Elementary School. As I look at our accomplishments over the years, it is my goal to continue the tradition of academic excellence and take full advantage of the new and innovative teaching research that our teachers are embracing. Doing so will move us forward in an already rich academic environment.

Here at Otto-Eldred Elementary, we encourage and welcome parental involvement in everything we do. Children whose parents are active in their education tend to grow into more successful adults. There are many opportunities—just ask! As partners in education, we share the responsibility for our children’s success, and we ask that you help guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring he/she:

  • attends school daily and arrives on time
  • completes all homework assignments
  • reads every day
  • shares experiences and asks for help when needed
  • knows that you expect him/her to succeed

We promise to do our part to guide your children towards academic mastery and responsible citizenship and to communicate with you in a timely, effective manner so that our partnership (and our children) succeed!

My door is always open to you should you have any questions or concerns.
