    Dear Orr Families,

    I am so proud to be the principal at Orr Elementary.  This is my 3rd year here. We have made some great strides in developing our instructional program over the past two years by working as a Professional Learning Community. This work allowed us to receive a grant to participate in the Inclusive Practices PLC Project this school year. This work will focus on meeting the individualized needs of ALL of our students. Our mission at Orr Elementary is to ignite learning in a fun, safe, respectful, and accepting environment in which all students thrive. We intentionally work to make that mission a reality at Orr Elementary every day.  We appreciate our families and community and know that working together is the only way to make Orr a premier school. We believe that we are well on our way to making that vision come true. This year, our theme is T.E.A.M.- Together Everyone Achieves More. We developed this theme through a collaborative effort through engagement with our community on Facebook. We were excited to role this theme out this year! More than ever, we need to work together as a team for our students. We are dedicated to doing that!
