Dear Oakridge Family,

We are wrapping up our first full week of school, and what a week it has been! We ended our first days of school with so many great successes - capped off with a thrilling, come-from-behind, last-second victory by our Varsity football team on Friday night. I hope you can join us on Saturday at 1 p.m., where we’ll take on Legacy Christian at The Star in Frisco! 

The opening days of school are some of the most inspiring as an educator. The lessons that are learned become building blocks to the success of later developmental milestones. Things that are as small as watching an ECC student unbuckle their car seat for the first time to watching our seniors proudly and confidently walk into school having just parked in their freshly painted parking spaces, the electricity of the opening days is palpable. It has been a busy and exciting time filled with new friendships, engaging lessons, and promising beginnings. Our students have embraced new routines, connected with their peers, and shown a genuine curiosity for learning that I am confident will continue to flourish throughout the year!

Enjoy the Labor Day holiday!

Go Owls!

Matt Burgy
Head of School
