    Mandarin Oaks Elementary Principal

    The excitement is building at Mandarin Oaks as we prepare our teachers and students for blasting off “To Proficiency and Beyond!” 


    I am honored to serve as your new Principal for the 2017-2018 school year and I can’t wait to build upon Mandarin Oaks’ proven foundation of excellence.  Our learning community is comprised of stellar teachers, wonderful staff, and eager learners.  Students here at MOE benefit from a dynamic literacy, math, and science program that challenges them to think critically and apply new knowledge on a daily basis. 


    We know that your support and participation in your child’s education is critical to their success, so we encourage you to attend the various events offered throughout the year, including STEM nights, Donuts With Dad, Muffins With Mom, movie nights, Fine Arts Week, and family festivals.  We also encourage you to contact us and “stay in the know” about your child’s assignments, assessments, and school activities. 


    Here’s to an “Out of this World” school year filled with energy, enthusiasm, learning, and a high standard of excellence!


    Educationally yours,


    Leigh Butterfield
