Meet the Principal


  • Be the Change

  • Inspire the Change

  • Implement the Change

Welcome to 2020-21! As we plan for a beginning like no other we have seen in the past, our focus will be to ensure that:

every child, every day is finding a way to become a self-directed learner, 

every child, every day is sharing their enthusiasm for learning, and 

every child, every day knows that their school is a safe, caring, and supportive environment

Spring of 2020 challenged staff and students to find a new normal for learning, connected us in new ways and required our scholars to learn in an atmosphere from afar. What I have most learned through this process is how much I appreciate the expertise our teachers and staff bring to Oliveira Elementary School, the ways in which our students continue to work hard to grow and overall, appreciation for the little things in life - giving a high five, a hug or being able to laugh out loud with many people around.  What I MOST appreciate about Oliveira is how even under circumstances we have never experienced, we are still a community that comes together and actively participates in our students' education.

Normal is such a simple word and it is our goal at Oliveira to not only find our new normal, but to use this time as a learning experience that will forever impact the learning environment of Oliveira.  Our fall may not be “normal,” but our learning will not only continue, it will thrive.  We can’t wait to move on to the next phase of learning under Covid-19 and we know, all returning and new students to Oliveira will be welcomed with open arms (from 6 feet away) to our community - we will continue to grow and be a school Where Young Minds Take Flight!
