    Olympic Hills Family Newsletter

    Principal’s Corner

    Olympic Hills Families,

    I would like to share with you some changes to our administration next year. Our current assistant principal, Ms. Christy Smith, has decided to work half time next year at Wedgwood in order to spend more time with her family. We are so grateful for Ms. Smith and sad to see her go, but wish her the absolute best!

    I am pleased to share that we have hired Brent Ostbye as our new assistant principal for next year, and the position has been increased to full time! Mr. Ostbye comes to us most recently from John Rogers Elementary, where he was a principal intern, math specialist, and Levy coordinator. Mr. Ostbye has experience in special education and instruction for English Language Learners. He has two young children of his own and looks forward to joining our special community here at Olympic Hills. Mr. Ostbye will introduce himself to families at the last PTA meeting on June 7th.
