It’s a great day to be a Bulldog!


Welcome to Okmulgee Primary!  This is a very exciting time in your child’s life. After fifteen years of teaching, I have become very aware of the impact teachers can have on the lives of their students.  As students enter school, they are turned over to the care of their teacher for nearly seven hours a day.  For this reason, I have always been a huge supporter of frequent home - school communication.  At Okmulgee Primary, it is our hope that we communicate together about your child, what's happening in class, ways you can support your child's learning at home, and ways that we can extend what you do at home in school.  We believe that when a parent and a teacher communicate regularly about a child, the child often has a happier, more successful school year.  The more we know about your child, the better we can effectively meet his/her needs in our school.  Our goal is to make this uyear the best it can be for each student in our school .

One of the most important things is for your child to be at school each day.  They will learn many new skills this year.  Our school day begins at 7:50A.M.  Please make every effort to have your child to school on time.  We will send home Weekly Folders on Tuesday of each week.  Always check this folder for your child’s graded papers, school notes, and other important papers that may need to be signed and returned.
