Greetings and welcome to Oak Meadow and Buckeye Union Mandarin Immersion!
Welcome to Oak Meadow Elementary and the Buckeye Union Mandarin Immersion Charter School. The Oak Meadow/BUMI school community is dedicated to providing our students with a well-rounded educational experience, and I am honored to be a small part of your child’s education.
Prior to coming to Oak Meadow/BUMI, I was a classroom teacher for over fifteen years. For the past seven years, I have worked in leadership roles at both district and site levels. As a classroom teacher, I learned firsthand the value of building strong relationships with families. As I moved into leadership positions, relationships have remained a core focus in my work with staff, families, and students.
It is my strong belief that adult and peer connections set the foundation for students to have a positive school experience. It is with this in mind that I will strive to support the entire Oak Meadow/BUMI community.
To our families, I believe that your involvement is an essential component of your child's academic success. The following are some ways to be involved in your child's education:
- Talk with your child every day about his or her daily school experiences
- Set high standards for the work that is performed
- Attend and participate in school events
- Keep in close touch with the teacher and communicate, communicate, communicate
- Let us know how we can best meet the needs of your child
- Join our Oak Meadow/BUMI School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
It is a tremendous honor to be the principal of a school with a strong reputation for excellence, and I look forward to building strong relationships with the staff and families of this great community. I am overjoyed to be in a position to positively impact the lives of students, staff, and families. If I can ever be of assistance, please feel free to call or email me.
Cinnamon Johnsrud, Principal
