Dear Oakridge Family,

We made it! What a wonderful beginning to this exciting school year! I’ve enjoyed the opening days of school; from seeing our Preschool students make their first strides into the classroom to our Class of 2024 confidently donning their navy blue polos (and accompanying “Senior” sashes), it has been a glorious first few days. We’ll cap off our week with classic Friday Night Lights as we take on Grace Prep at Frank Field at 7 PM! I hope to see you all there, cheering on the Owls and building a strong community!

The start of a new school year is always a time filled with excitement and anticipation. It marked the beginning of new friendships, new challenges, and, new opportunities for growth. For those of us at the school, it is the culmination of months of preparation. From large-scale construction projects like the SAC renovation to smaller adaptations in the ways we teach and learn, there is an enormous effort from everyone at the school to make sure these days and the many more that follow an exceptional experience. 

We are excited to announce that our new handbook is now available. I encourage you to examine it, taking care to look at your child(ren)’s specific division. There is a treasure trove of information available, and it is important to ensure you know and understand many of the school’s policies.

Go Owls!

Matt Burgy
