    News and Updates

    Hello Orenco Families!

    We made it to June 2021! It is hard to believe the year we have all experienced and how our Orenco community worked together in many ways to help and support one another. HSD put many systems into place so we could have the things we needed to keep kids coming and showing up for school--from meals to Chromebooks to wifi hotspots and more. You all showed tremendous support by encouraging your children and their teacher this year. We thank you for sticking with us even though it might have been bumpy at times. We tried being flexible, supportive and caring this year. We all had a lot to learn and gained so many new skills. Thank you for your constant partnership and commitment to our students!



    ¡Hola familias de Orenco!

    ¡Llegamos a junio de 2021! Es difícil creer el año que todos hemos vivido y cómo nuestra comunidad de Orenco trabajó unida de muchas maneras para ayudarse y apoyarse mutuamente. HSD implementó muchos sistemas para que pudiéramos tener las cosas que necesitábamos para que los niños siguieran viniendo y asistiendo a la escuela, desde comidas hasta Chromebooks, puntos de acceso wifi y más. Todos ustedes mostraron un gran apoyo al animar a sus hijos y a su maestro este año. Le agradecemos que se quede con nosotros a pesar de que a veces pudo haber estado lleno de baches. Intentamos ser flexibles, solidarios y solidarios este año. Todos teníamos mucho que aprender y adquirimos muchas habilidades nuevas. ¡Gracias por su constante colaboración y compromiso con nuestros estudiantes!

Principal's Message

  • Allison Combs Dear Orenco Families,

    Being the principal of Orenco Elementary School is a tremendous honor and is the best job in the world. Each day I am thrilled to work with such a caring and dedicated staff and families. I am excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to your son’s/daughter’s school and to collaborate with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

    Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Orenco by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  We will focus on character education initiatives through Positive Behavior Intervention Support, Capturing Kids Hearts, fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of newly adopted English Language Arts to increase students’ achievement, by providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.

    The diverse student population at Orenco Elementary School provides everyone with an awareness and appreciation for all cultures. The Orenco staff are passionate, dedicated educators who set high standards of achievement so our young scholars can be successful. We are determined to drive rigorous engagement in literacy, writing, math, and science, and provide individualized opportunities for student growth. To ensure this happens, we collaborate regularly around student learning, challenge one another, and seek to continuously improve in teaching and learning. We set high expectations for ourselves and our young scholars, and work together in the process of achieving those expectations.

    Thank you for trusting us with the education and caring development of your child. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. Family support is a critical link to student achievement. We want to hear from you!

    In partnership,

    Allison Combs
