Welcome to Odessa Elementary School, home of the Wildcats! We are very proud of our school and our students. We are grateful for the parent and community support offered each day. We encourage all our families to be involved in our school events and the numerous activities in which our students are involved.
We are looking forward to an exciting year of learning opportunities with our students. Teachers and students work together in various team structures, and develop strong bonds in a family oriented culture. Teams provide an environment of continuous learning that enables, encourages and supports each student in the learning process. We believe that learning is the shared responsibility of the school staff, the students, the home, and the community. It takes all of us working together to educate our children and to provide an atmosphere of equity and excellence.
We sincerely hope that you will take the opportunity to be active in our school community, visit our school often, and attend the many activities we have planned for this year. We have prepared this handbook to help you better understand the policies and operations of our school. We hope you will find the following information convenient and informative. Please read this handbook to become familiar with our school and district and refer to it during the school year.
