    Dear Oak Ridge Faculty, Staff, Parents, and Students:

    I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Principal of Oak Ridge Elementary and to let you know how honored I am to officially join the Eagle Family. I come to Oak Ridge having served as the Assistant Principal for Curriculum at Gilchrist Elementary School for the past five years. Prior to that, I had the pleasure of serving as a Teacher, Assistant Principal, and Principal respectively in the DeKalb County School System in Georgia for a combined sixteen years. 

    My ultimate goal as your new Principal is to work with you to ensure that all Oak Ridge students achieve their highest potential. I have learned through experience that children can only reach their greatest potential through partnership and collaboration amongst committed and supportive administrators, teachers, parents, support staff, and students. Over that past few weeks, I have had the opportunity to have both informal meetings and discussions with various stakeholders in the Oak Ridge Community.  Through these opportunities it has become quickly apparent to me that this is a shared belief at Oak Ridge Elementary School.

    I’m certain that many of you have questions about the ramifications of our most current school grade and the work that lies ahead.  I  want you to know that I firmly believe that a school and community are so much more than a grade. However;  I enthusiastically embrace the challenge of working together to provide differentiated learning opportunities for each student and inspiring and challenging our students through engaging experiences. 

     I am confident, that together, we can make Oak Ridge an even better place for our students to learn and grow.   I look forward to meeting you and working together towards continued success at Oak Ridge.

    Sincerely,

    Jasmine C. Smith, Ed.D.

Solar Eclipse August 21st 3:30 dismissal for students

  • Solar Eclipse August 21st 3:30 dismissal for students

    Dear Oak Ridge Parents and Community Members: 

    The eclipse in Tallahassee is expected to begin around 1:10pm and come to its fullest around 2:42pm. Since Tallahassee is not in the path of “totality”, we will experience a “partial” solar eclipse, but the moon will be covering 90% of the sun - it will be dark!

    Due to safety concerns, Leon County Schools is altering dismissal times for all schools. Pre-K hours will remain the same. We will excuse all early pick ups on that day. However: cut off for pick ups will be 1:00.

     

    Students at Oak Ridge Elementary School will be dismissed at 3:30 pm.
