Welcome to Ottawa Elementary School! We are the Ottawa TEAM, where Together Everyone Achieves More, and we are glad to have you join our team!
Ottawa has a solid tradition of strong academic achievement, and has been named a Reward School by the State of Michigan in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, and a Beating the Odds School in 2014 and 2015. Our staff is dedicated to helping each and every child succeed, and will do whatever it takes to reach that goal. We are improving our math and science curriculum, including the addition of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) activities to give students more hands-on learning opportunities. We have also added the Ottawa TEAM Garden, a growing laboratory for our students.
At Ottawa we are a part of the Full Value Agreement, in which all staff and students agree to:
· Work together as a team
· Be safe physically and emotionally
· Speak up and speak out
These skills will help all children be better citizens in the future.
I look forward to working with each and every one of you, as we blend together to make the Ottawa TEAM!
Carol Thola, Principal
