Dear Alice Ott Student, Parent/Guardian:
Welcome to Alice Ott Middle School and the 2018-19 school year. I hope you are enjoying this warm and sunny summer weather while also looking forward to a new school year!
Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Duane Larson, principal of Alice Ott. This is my second year as principal here, after being the assistant principal for 15 years. I’m looking forward to continuing to be part of the great work our staff and students have been doing for so many years!
If you are new to Alice Ott, we would like to welcome you to the Husky family. Our goal is to make your transition as smooth as possible. If you are a returning student, welcome back! Please remember it is our desire to involve students’ families as partners in their child’s education. We know this increases academic achievement and creates a better atmosphere for learning and development of each student.
The beginning of the school year is quickly approaching. Your student may be experiencing a variety of emotions, including excitement about returning to school and seeing friends, along with nerves about being in a new school or grade. It is our goal to help your child start off smoothly and grow academically throughout their time here. At Alice Ott we know that every student has tremendous potential, and our goal is to help each one maximize that for a successful future!
