Principal's Message

Dear Families,

Welcome to Iron House Elementary School!! I am so honored and pleased to be your principal again for the 2019-20 school year. As we embark on another school year together, let me start by telling you what an amazing school Iron House is in your community. Without exception, everyone here subscribes to our philosophy of being warm, welcoming, and supportive to our families. 

My goal remains the same which is to TEAM with all parents and teachers so WE can provide an education that is challenging, empowering, and equitable to all students. Student learning and safety will always be priority number one. TOGETHER we can motivate our students to achieve and reach their greatest potential.

One of the most important components of an exceptional school like Iron House is the partnership between home and school.  Iron House has a strong tradition of supportive, hard-working families.  Throughout the year you will have the opportunity to develop our partnership in a wide variety of ways.  Families can join PTAs, volunteer in the classroom, help in the library, attend Site School Site Council meetings, or attend 2nd Cup of Coffee. There are an abundant of events or activities that make our school a special place for our children to learn and for you to be involved in.

This year is unique as we will have Summer Lake Elementary School students and staff here until there new school has completed its construction. We will have two separate schools on one campus. Though separate, a child is a child and we will continue support all students on this campus and community. As most of the Summer Lake students attended Iron House last year, it will be a joy to see familiar faces and smiles. That being said, we are happy to have them as our guest!

I’m looking forward to meeting all of the wonderful families that make Iron House School such an incredible place.  If you haven’t had a chance to stop by the office yet, and find yourself with a few extra minutes, please stop in.  I promise not to take up too much of your time. You can contact me at either 925-625-6825 or sbrown@ouesd.k12.ca.us. Sneak-a-Peak is on Friday July 26th for all our students from 2pm-3pm. Back to School Night for kindergartners only is on Friday, July 26th at 5pm-5:30pm. Back to School Night for 1st- 5th grade is on August 8th from 6pm-7:30pm. 

I am excited and privileged to be part of the dedicated and professional staff at Iron House As we journey through this year together, I trust this is going to be an amazing year full of fun, growing relationships, and learning for all of us. I hope it is clear Iron House is a community united around its children.

In your service,

Sean Brown
