Welcome to Masters Elementary School!

We hope you enjoy visiting our Website. Our school's number one focus is to see each student reach his or her highest potential. Our overall goal is to improve student achievement. To reach this goal, we follow strategies from our EXCELS school improvement plan. At Masters Elementary, the staff, parents, students, and community work together to increase student achievement. By keeping the lines of communication open, students will experience success at Masters.

Masters School provides many services to meet the needs of our students and community. Breakfast is provided before school for all students, and before and after school day care is available through OPS Kids Club. We have a hard working and active PTO that sponsors family activities, and of course, an outstanding staff teaching an excellent curriculum, supporting our goal of improving student achievement.

The Masters School Web site will provide important information about our school and events for the 2013-2014 school year. Please visit our Web site throughout the school year. We value your input. Let us know if you have suggestions, questions, or concerns. By working together, we can make a difference in the lives of our students.

PARENT/TEACHER ORGANIZATION

COORDINATORS/VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR 6TH GRADE DANCE! We are asking for helpers to make this a memorable day for our 6th graders. PTO is providing a DJ, cookies and punch for the dance. If you can volunteer or have ideas to plan this event contact us. The dance is Wednesday, May 21st from 1pm-3pm

Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who have volunteered in classrooms and PTO activities this school year. If you still have box tops to send to school please do so; every box top is worth $.10. We were able to purchase every student and staff member a field day shirt with the box top money we redeemed. Have a great summer and we look forward to seeing everyone next year.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Dear Monarch Family,

As the school year comes to a close, our minds and hearts are filled to the brim. It’s been a great year! What a school! Together we’ve learned much and shared experiences that will long remain with us in the years to come. The strength of our community and wholehearted passion to make our school a wonderful place of learning for our children primarily but for all of us makes Masters truly a special place.  Special thanks to all of you who have contributed in ways small, large and unimaginable!  Reading with your child every night, attending and participating on field trips, helping with school book fairs, providing food and/or organizing lunches for teachers, organizing events, working at these events, showing up to support your children, serving on committees, sharing your talents, helping with traffic, picking up trash, brainstorming the “what ifs”… supporting our work in countless ways and providing the resources to do what we dream and know is good for children. Thanks for getting your kids to school on time each day, for kind notes of encouragement that mean so much, for sending your kids with healthy lunches obviously packed with love, for making sure homework gets done… and turned in. Thank you for providing rich and engaging, well-rounded experiences for your children and knowing that education is about joy, wonder and fostering curiosity, along with the development of social skills so needed to succeed. For these, and a million other things, we are truly grateful!  For your calendaring pleasure, the first day of school begins on Wednesday, August  13! Safe Walk to School Night is Monday, August 11, 2014.  Until then, enjoy a restful and replenishing summer with your families!

Please feel free to e-mail your comments, suggestions, or questions to ledonna.york@ops.org I welcome your input.                                                                                   

   Sincerely,

Dr. LeDonna York, Principal
