Principal's Greeting

Welcome to Masters Elementary, the home of the Monarchs! It is truly an honor to be the Principal of a school with such a wonderful history of excellence. At Masters Elementary, the staff, parents, students, and community all work together!


Our School provides many services to meet the needs of our students and community. A complimentary breakfast is provided before school for all students, and before and after school care is available through the OPS Kids Club program for a minimal fee. We have an active PTO that sponsors family activities and supports our outstanding staff and students.

Each year we review our school improvement plan, reviewing our annual test scores, setting annual goals, and revising our teaching strategies. We would appreciate your input and support as we go about the business of educating all students. Masters is an integral part of the community that serves students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

My philosophy of going about the business of educating students is especially stimulating because the entire Masters staff obviously subscribes to the same message:


A student is the most important person in any school.

A student is not an interruption of our work—he or she is the purpose of it.

A student is not just a statistic. He or she is a human being with feelings and emotions like ourselves.

A student is one who comes to us with needs and/or wants. It is our job to fill them.

A student is deserving of the most courteous and attentive treatment that we can provide.

A student is the purpose of this and every other school. Without him or her, we would have to close our doors.

The focus of the future should be on service and excellence. We are pleased, as employees of the Omaha Public Schools, to have the opportunity to serve and work with your children.

We firmly believe that a strong home and school partnership, along with consistent communication, will help our students achieve in a safe and positive school environment. We thank you for your continued support as we continue a bright and promising year for our students. Our doors are always open, and we encourage you to share with us so that together we can ensure the best possible educational experience for every child. Masters is not only your child’s school; it is your families' school. Together, we can make a difference.


Believe it, Achieve it, Together we fly!
