Orcas island elementary PORTAL

Happy Summer to all! Thank you to the staff, students, parents and community for rallying to end this crazy year! We all did it, we persevered! Now leave technology for awhile, get outside, read a book, run some laps, work on your math facts and read some more! As we are all out and about this summer, I look forward to seeing you around town, at Island Market and at Cascade Lake! Enjoy!

To the 5th grade class - Today is YOUR day, you're off to great places! You're off and away! (Dr. Seuss) Oh the places you will go! The OIES staff are so proud of YOU! I am proud of YOU! You were the last class I had the pleasure to teach before becoming the principal of OIES. YOU all will ALWAYS hold a very special place in my heart!
