Weekly Principal's Message10/13/2023
Hello Ockley Green Families & Partners -
We have added a critical component to our Where Everybody Belongs (WEB) program this year in having regular guidance sessions for our 6th Grade students, led by our Dragon Leaders. This week, our Dragon Leaders led their first direct guidance activity with their student groups during Advisory. These students showed our Ockley Green Core Values: Caring, Collaboration and Growth as they worked with their 6th Grade students. I am incredibly appreciative of how this important work is helping in the creation of a positive learning environment through supporting our 6th Grade students' transition.
Please see below for some important updates!
