Principal's Message

Hello Ocean View Community,


Welcome to the 2020-21 school year at Ocean View Elementary School! I look forward to our continued partnership in providing our Dolphins with the best elementary school experience as I begin my 5th year serving as an administrator at OV. If your family is new to Ocean View, I extend a warm welcome from the Dolphin Family and eagerly anticipate meeting you in person.


As we head into school this year, I know there are a lot of questions and new concerns for all of our families as we start school at a distance.  Many things have changed but what hasn’t changed is the dedicated and talented Ocean View teaching teachers and staff! As we head into the 20-21 school year we know that we need to take everything to the NEXT LEVEL!  This has become our theme for the year.  We will be focusing on the following the 5C’s as we take it to the #OVNEXTLEVEL: 


Communication: We will be unifying our communication with families by using the Remind App for all students. 


Collaboration: Already a strength, collaboration will be key for producing well articulated expectations for students and meaningful feedback on their work.


Critical Thinking: Students will use critical thinking skills to access the many platforms available to show what they have learned.


Creativity: Teachers are using their own creativity to write lessons that bring out the creativity in our dolphins.  They will use multiple platforms for students to show that creativity.


Community: The community that exists at Ocean View is already strong but we will be tested this year and will need to fall back on that strength.  Together we will make the 20-21 school best for our students.


In preparation for our return to school, please keep this newsletter handy, visit the EWCSD 2020-21 Plan Website frequently, and read all Aeries Communications messages as the most current information and any changes will be communicated as soon as possible through Aeries.

I look forward to seeing everyone soon! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. 562-907-6400.



Respectfully yours,

Kim Songer
