Principal's Message

  • Dear Families,


    Welcome to Overlook Elementary! This website is just one of the ways in which we strive to communicate with our school community. We also send automated phone calls to update families about special events and happenings, and a weekly newsletter is sent through email and posted on this site. We also have a Twitter page, so follow us @Overlookes.


    Here at Overlook, we provide a comprehensive instructional program for students in Kindergarten through grade 5. We follow the Anne Arundel County curriculum that is based on Common Core Standards and we strive each day to provide a safe and encouraging environment where our students demonstrate attributes of the PYP Learner Profile. All of our students participate in two additional Cultural Arts classes each week where students are working on project based learning and learning the German language.


    The faculty and staff at Overlook Elementary are committed to the teaching of all students and helping each child reach his or her full potential. Our families and community partner with us to help make learning connect to real life, as well as being fun and engaging. We are privileged to have a wonderful PTA that supports the academic achievement of all students in our school. If you are interested in joining our PTA, please contact the office for more information.


    I am honored to be part of this fantastic community. I look forward to many exciting events in the months and years to come. Thank you for being part of our team.


    Our mission at Overlook Elementary School is to foster a positive social, emotional, and academic education within a safe, nurturing environment. Through collaboration and communication, we provide an engaging, rigorous academic setting. Students take ownership of their learning in order to be successful, global citizens living healthy lifestyles.
