Welcome to the website of O. C. Johnson Elementary School, the proud home of the Jaguars. We believe that good communication between school and home is essential to our students (your child’s) success. Please look for our monthly newsletter, Jaguar News, at the beginning of each month. This will outline monthly events and news at OCJ. Working together, we can provide many opportunities for each child to achieve successful academic and social growth. We hope parents will want to visit our school often and volunteer their time and talents, which tell our students that they and their education are important.
Please remember that we are a uniform school. If you have any questions regarding the uniform policy, please visit the front office. Also, please remember that in order to keep students safe we ask that only employees and visitors with appointments use the parking lot. Please make sure to pick up and drop off your student in the designated area. Again, if you have any questions regarding our policies, please see the front office.
Our website will provide a list of our talented and dedicated staff, a school calendar of events, and a news page to highlight the great things going on at O. C. Johnson. We hope you will check out our page of frequently asked questions and, of course, if you need anything that you haven’t been able to find on our website, you are welcome to contact us directly.
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year. This is an exciting time to be a Jaguar! At O.C. Johnson we are committed to educating the whole child and strive to do our very best for each and every child at all times. We will continue the rich traditions of O.C. Johnson while enhancing the existing programs and focusing on school and community pride. Teachers will continue to utilize our digital learning programs as part of our personalized learning initiative, and we will be adding STEM clubs this year. All staff members will continually support students so that they feel safe, comfortable, and motivated.
As the principal of O.C. Johnson, I look forward to working with all members of the school community to provide the best educational environment for all students. We understand the importance of academic achievement, but also know that elementary school is a crucial time where we build social and emotional skills. We will focus our instruction on AZCCRS and will continue with our PBIS program to promote respect and responsibility school wide.
Our website is a great place to keep updated on the events and happenings at OCJ. Our Facebook page is also a wonderful place to see what is happening at our amazing school. Jaguar Pride is in full effect on our campus! Join us for the great things that 2016-2017 are going to bring. Go Jaguars!
Yours in Education,
