Dear Alice Ott Families,
Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! I am honored to be the new AOMS principal. I have been an educator in DDSD for over 20 years; I have 12 years of middle school experience and have been a principal for the past 5 years. I look forward to getting to know Alice Ott students and their families! All AOMS staff are dedicated to providing your child(ren) a positive, interactive, and engaging learning experience and look forward to welcoming them back to school.
We are in a time not only of public health uncertainty but also of great social unrest. As a principal, I am committed to ensuring that AOMS is not complicit in perpetuating systemic racism. In solidarity with our community members, Alice Ott staff will promote social justice by listening, learning, growing and improving our educational practices to create an environment in which every child knows they have the same opportunity to flourish unhindered by prejudice or bias. This is the moment for everyone to be thoughtful allies, critical thinkers and problem solvers. Alice Ott community, we hear you and value every single student, individual and family.
Most AOMS communication will occur electronically via ParentSquare. To ensure that you are receiving school information, please ensure that your phone number and email address are current within our school information system. Please call the AOMS office if you need assistance with this. You may also find us online @ FaceBook: https://www.facebook.com/aliceottmiddleschool, and our school website: https://aoms.ddouglas.k12.or.us/. Families will receive a weekly electronic school newsletter beginning in October.
I look forward to welcoming all students and their families in September. Let’s work together to make this year a great year – ensuring all students learn, grow and thrive at AOMS! Go Huskies!
Alice Ott Middle School Principal
