MHeinerDear Olive Street Families,

On behalf of the Olive Street staff, I would like to welcome you back to Olive Street for the 2015-2016 school year.  I am very excited and honored to be your principal.  I know many of you know me as a former teacher and vice principal here at Olive Street, and I look forward to continuing and building our relationship.  I have worked for the Anaheim City School District for nearly 19 years, 13 as a teacher and 6 as an administrator.  I look forward to many more to come.

At Olive Street we have a tremendous staff of teachers, support, and office personnel, dedicated to bringing a quality education to all students, focusing on Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Creativity, and Communication skills.  We are committed to excellence in all academic content areas which includes our Distinguished Practice of Health and Fitness, understanding that “Healthy Bodies” support “Healthy Minds.”

We also understand that in order to excel in a growing global community, our scholars will need to have the technological skills to meet these new challenges.  Olive Street promotes the use of technology in all academic areas, as well as developing personal digital citizenship among all scholars.  We will continue to grow and increase our capacity for providing the most current technology, supporting these goals.

To meet the needs of each of our scholars, teachers and staff participate in professional developments designed to provide the most current, researched-based instructional strategies and programs.  Through collaboration and teamwork these strategies and programs come to life in the classroom, delivering exceptional learning experiences for all scholars.

As a school, we value the home-school partnership, knowing that these goals cannot be met without your support and participation in your scholars’ educational journey.  We welcome families to be part of Olive Streets learning community.

As always we welcome your questions and comments.  Please feel free to call our office, send an email, or stop by the office.  I look forward to a tremendous year and again, I am deeply honored to serve as principal of Olive Street School.

Michael Heiner
