Dear Otsego Families,
It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year! Otsego is a wonderful place where students can learn and grow in a safe, supportive, and caring atmosphere. Our dedicated and talented staff strives to ensure that all our children receive an exemplary education that will prepare them to be contributing members of our global society.
Our New York State standards-based programs and innovative district-wide curriculum create a dynamic environment for education and set the stage for student achievement and success. Each day, children of varying abilities, talents, interests, and backgrounds work and play together. We encourage our students to challenge themselves, celebrating their creativity, initiative, and individuality. Through their daily interactions in the classroom and their participation in our many extracurricular programs, our students are provided with the foundation for a lifelong love of learning,
Otsego Elementary School is a child-centered, family-oriented place. The partnership between our faculty and the school community serves to enhance the educational experiences for all children. Our PTA is an exceptional organization that supports our students and staff, while bringing numerous special programs and events to our building.
I am privileged be the principal of such an outstanding school and consider myself lucky that so many wonderful students, staff members, and families touch my life each day. Please join me as we work together to build a bright and successful future for all our children.
Stacey Gillespie, Ed.D.
