Video/Letter from Principal Doudt

Dear OSD Families,

I truly appreciate all of the many warm welcomes that I received from the OSD community. My family and I officially have settled down our roots. The month of October is here and the fall season has begun! The morning brisk chilled air has arrived. This change of season reminds me to take a quick pause and appreciate these changes. As we face many changes in our daily lives, the important thing to ask is how can we respond to change? How can we be proactive when we face change? Here at OSD,with many changes, our teachers are working hard to prepare our students for the future. Our students are motivated and engaged in their schoolwork.

I would like to recognize many good things that has been happening around campus. Recently, OSD celebrated International Peace Day. This involved every student from kindergarten to our seniors. The students made origami peace cranes and signed a pledge towards peace. This event was such a success!

We recently held our first parent/teacher conference night. It was a success! I had great time meeting and getting to know our parents. Our middle school students are practicing hard for their upcoming Battle of the Books event. Our female middle and elementary students are involved with Girls on the Run organization. I cannot forget to mention that our varsity soccer team recently earned a great victory against the West Pennsylvania School for the Deaf. Go Spartans!

There are many other things going on around campus. I enjoy seeing our students thrive socially and academically. As your new elementary/middle school principal, my goal this year is to continue to support OSD’s mission and vision.  I also want to provide top-notch academic and personal support to our teachers, staff, and students. I look forward to a great school year!

Onward and Upward!
