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 annual 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 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.

Parents do you want to
want to have an opinion about Master’s school?
Now is the time. The purpose of the Parent Survey is to get more
actionable feedback about parent’s experiences at Masters. The survey was launched by sending the link
to all parents that have an email registered with the district. Your feedback
is very important to us and continues to help us provide high quality education
to all students. Please provide feedback at the following URL:Survey Link: www.TinyURL.com/OPSParentVoice.
To further improve the
survey process, and the validity of this data; the parent survey was divided
into six different areas that parents can provide feedback for those areas that
they have feedback to provide – versus having to provide feedback for all areas
regardless of if a parent has relevant feedback to provide. Starting next year,
this survey will be available to parents starting on the first day of school to
ensure that we are capturing the experiences of parents’ interactions with your
building and your staff as they happen. For your reference, a live link to the
number of responses recorded for each school can be viewed here: https://ops.co1.qualtrics.com/WRReport/?RPID=RP2_b71A3gj0mc68XDD&P=C
FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Our students in grades 3, 4, 5
and 6 are taking their state test in reading, math and science over the next
4-5 weeks. Student performance is greatly impacted in a positive manner with
parents serving as partners in the educational process. If your students is in
one of the testing grade levels, we ask for your assistance by making certain
that students get a good night’s sleep and start each day with a positive “I
can and I will rock this test!” Parents; we thank you so much for your
continued support and encouragement for our students to do their best…it is
their time to shine.
The weather is getting a lot nicer;
however, breakfast begins at 8:40 AM. Staff are available to supervise students
at 8:35 AM. For the safety of ALL students, please do not drop off students
before 8:35 A.M. When students arrive they will line up in the breakfast line
of their choice: either “hot breakfast” or “cold breakfast,” and remain
outdoors until the staff member walks them into the building. All students will
enter the building at a level 1 (whisper voice) to start there day with a “grab
and go” breakfast. If your student choses to not eat breakfast, he/she will
stand in the cold breakfast line and walk through the cafeteria before going to
their classroom. We are so excited about the work that is being completed on
the south side of the building. This space will be the size of two additional
classrooms and will serve as a space for our severe weather shelter for all
staff and students. We are most proud of our students of the month for the
month of March. Please see on the back of the newsletter our students’ daily
display of being respectful, responsible learners.
Please feel free to e-mail your comments,
suggestions, or questions to email@example.com I welcome your input.
