Principal's Message

Welcome To Arbor Ridge K-8 School!

Mrs. Vanessa DeMars

Greetings Arbor Ridge Families! 

Thanks for stopping by our school website, where you can find integral information about the wonderful things happening at Arbor Ridge K8! 

Our most recent news- which I am excited to share- is about our free, on-demand tutoring called OLET (Orange Live Electronic Tutor). OLET is only available to students within the Innovation Office in grades 6, 7, and 8, which Arbor Ridge is a part of!  Most importantly, your student has access in OLET to a free, certified virtual math teacher tutor Monday to Thursday from 5:00-9:00 pm. Students will log into Canvas and locate the OLET 21-22 Canvas course. Students will click on “Schedule Here” and then follow the directions on the left side titled "How to book an appointment with a math tutor". It is very important that students use their OCPS email, which is their student number, to book their appointment since the virtual Microsoft Teams meeting link to join their appointment will be sent to their OCPS email. 

OLET supports students during hours when teachers are typically unavailable and parents are working. This additional layer of support will help students stay on track and build important math skills. The OLET tutors will provide personal and flexible support to enhance the educational experience for our OCPS families to help keep students feeling supported and connected. Book your appointment now, tutor schedules are filling up quickly.

As always, thank you for your continued support!
Best Regards, 

Vanessa DeMars
