Welcome to Masters Elementary School!
We hope you enjoy visiting our Website. Our school's number one focus is to see each student reach his or her highest potential. Our overall goal is to improve student achievement. To reach this goal, we follow strategies from our EXCELS school improvement plan. At Masters Elementary, the staff, parents, students, and community work together to increase student achievement. By keeping the lines of communication open, students will experience success at Masters.
Masters School provides many services to meet the needs of our students and community. Breakfast is provided before school for all students, and before and after school day care is available through OPS Kids Club. We have a hard working and active PTO that sponsors family activities, and of course, an outstanding staff teaching an excellent curriculum, supporting our goal of improving student achievement.
The Masters School Web site will provide important information about our school and events for the 2013-2014 school year. Please visit our Web site throughout the school year. We value your input. Let us know if you have suggestions, questions, or concerns. By working together, we can make a difference in the lives of our students.
Show your Masters pride by wearing school colors, orange and black, or a Masters shirt on Fridays!

the school year comes to a close, our minds and hearts are filled to the brim.
It’s been a great year! What a school! Together we’ve learned much and shared
experiences that will long remain with us in the years to come. The strength of
our community and wholehearted passion to make our school a wonderful place of
learning for our children primarily but for all of us makes Masters truly a
special place. Special thanks to
all of you who have contributed in ways small, large and unimaginable! Reading with your child every night,
attending and participating on field trips, helping with school book fairs,
providing food and/or organizing lunches for teachers, organizing events,
working at these events, showing up to support your children, serving on
committees, sharing your talents, helping with traffic, picking up trash,
brainstorming the “what ifs”… supporting our work in countless ways and
providing the resources to do what we dream and know is good for children.
Thanks for getting your kids to school on time each day, for kind notes of
encouragement that mean so much, for sending your kids with healthy lunches
obviously packed with love, for making sure homework gets done… and turned in.
Thank you for providing rich and engaging, well-rounded experiences for your
children and knowing that education is about joy, wonder and fostering
curiosity, along with the development of social skills so needed to succeed.
For these, and a million other things, we are truly grateful! For your calendaring pleasure, the first
day of school begins on Wednesday, August
13! Safe Walk to School Night is Monday, August 11, 2014. Until then, enjoy a restful and
replenishing summer with your families!
