Welcome Message from Principal John Rechi
John Rechi, Principal
To the Ox Ridge School Community and to visitors to our website:
In the 2010-2011 school year, approximately 475 students in grades kindergarten through five will be in attendance at Ox Ridge. This year, we welcome a new assistant principal, Mr. Luke Forshaw, to our school, as well as some new teachers and aides. A number of our staff participated in professional development activities during the past summer, including literacy workshops at Teachers College, Columbia University. Our teachers continue to enhance their skills and knowledge through such activities throughout the school year. One focus this year will be the continuation of developing ways to better differentiate instruction for our students.
In addition to an outstanding staff, we have the good fortune of having a PTO that is comprised of supportive, energetic, and giving parents who enhance our program in a number of ways. The PTO provides wonderful enrichment experiences for our students, and parent volunteers assist throughout our school in many ways. Our enrichment theme this year will focus on the continued “greening” of our school environment.
I hope you take an opportunity to visit the various segments of our website and to get a glimpse at the high quality of education that exists at our school.
John F. Rechi, Principal
