Principal's Corner

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Some of you have heard that Onalaska Elementary would be getting a new principal.

I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to you and tell you how excited I am about this new adventure.

I have been a resident of Onalaska for thirty-eight years. Both of my sons graduated from Onalaska. I began my career at Onalaska as a volunteer, then hired as an educational assistant. I attained my teaching certificate and started my teaching career here in Onalaska in 2007. I am totally devoted to our community and school, and I am eager to start a new chapter as principal at Onalaska Elementary!

The start of a new school year is so exciting. We thank you for the opportunity to work with your children and hope they will have a wonderful, productive year filled with lots of learning and excitement.

To our new families; the warmest welcome. At Onalaska Elementary we want to actively involve you in your child’s educational experience. Expect to hear from us and be invited into the school to see your child’s accomplishments. 

The strongest indicator in the overall success of our students will always be our ability to work in collaboration with our parents, we hope you feel welcome in our school and take advantage of opportunities to become involved and to learn more about our great school district! 

I look forward to working with all the wonderful students, parents, and stakeholders of Onalaska Elementary School.

I encourage you to contact my office with any questions or concerns that you might have, my phone number is 360-978-4111 or email me sbowen@onysd.wednet.edu

It’s a great day to be a logger,

Sandy Bowen, Principal

Onalaska Elementary School
