    Olympia Learning Center Families & Students,

    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! 

    Olympia Learning Center has a diverse faculty and staff with a wealth of knowledge to meet the needs of the students we serve. Our main goal is to establish a positive, respectful culture centered on teaching and learning using the tenets of social emotional learning and the 4 C’s around accountability + 1: critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration + caring. We will remain committed to ensuring your child achieves academic excellence; and we look forward to working with you to guarantee that our goals are achieved. We believe high expectations yield academic outcomes for all students. Of course, we need and welcome your support and cooperation. You play a key role in the academic success of our students; therefore, school/parent communication is crucial. 

    As the instructional leader of our Olympia Learning Center and our pursuit to become a model alternative setting, I am certain that every child can learn and achieve the highest level of academic success with the proper preparation and support.  To ensure a successful school year, I ask that you take a moment to review your child’s interim report (this information can be found on PowerSchool). As you examine the interim report, reflect on the following questions: What were some successes they experienced during the first 4 weeks of school?  What teachers, classes, or assignments influenced them?  What struggles did they have and what lessons are to be learned from those struggles?  Our hope is that students remain intentional in reaching their goals while reflecting on their articulated goals for the 2021-2022 school year.

    We strive to keep parents informed of not only their children’s progress, but about all that happens at Olympia Learning Center on a daily and weekly basis.   The more you frequent our website -- https://www.richlandone.org/Domain/53  , monitor your student’s progress via PowerSchool and communicate with the faculty and staff, the greater our partnership will be. 



    Bobbie Hartwell, Jr. Principal
