Osage Beach Elementary
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to OBE! For some of you, Osage Beach Elementary School is the beginning of your child’s education. Our staff is thrilled to be building the educational foundation upon which your children grow. OBE is a happy, welcoming school in which your children will be nurtured as they embark on their academic careers. We welcome you as partners in your child’s learning and hope you will be a familiar face at OBE.
Our school services grades PreK-4. Our staff is talented and specifically trained at the early intervention and primary level. Best practices are implemented as we ensure that your children receive both the social and academic curricula they require to be successful. We are also implementing the 7 Habits process with all of our students to provide them with the social skills needed to help them thrive at home, school and in their community.
In addition to creating a welcome, thriving community for the students, we are beginning to incorporate the Missouri Learning State Standards which relate to the Common Core Standards to educate your children. The Missouri Learning Standards define what all students are expected to know and be able to do. OBE teachers and I have begun to assume responsibility of implementing the MLS's. We will continue to work collaboratively to implement these standards by creating and implementing skill-specific lessons, and using cutting-edge materials and assessments to monitor student progress. Our staff will be focusing on ensuring that we are a climate of professional learning, as we believe that it is best practice to be life-long learners.
Your child is our top priority and we look forward to continuing to work together. Please remember to encourage your child to read at home. By modeling good reading habits and getting excited about what you are reading and learning your child will be sure to follow.
We value your presence during all school events and hope to provide a variety of opportunities to help us connect with your child and family. Educational research shows that one of the most important characteristics of an effective school is building a strong home-school relationship. OBE welcomes your involvement and seeks to create strong home-school relationships. Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or me if you have questions. I am looking forward to a terrific year!
