Principal's Message

  • Mrs. Giancarli, Principal of Olsen MS


    Dear Awesome Olsen Parents, Guardians, and Students, 

    It is hard to believe that we are already in the second semester of the school year!  I want to take a moment to express my appreciation for your continued support. 

    Our ongoing focus is on teaching and learning to assure all students make learning gains, are proficient in their core content area classes and are high school ready upon completion of eighth grade. 

    Learning happens in the classroom. Students need to be in school ALL day EVERY day. The first bell is at 7:10 a.m. Please make sure your child is in attendance and on time to school daily. For safety and security purposes, students must visibly wear their student ID.  

    All students are invited to participate in extended learning opportunities (ELO,) Monday and Wednesday afterschool from 1:45 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  We need our Vikings to take advantage of the additional academic support and learning. 

    As we move forward, we continue to model our Viking Values of Excellence, Character, and Respect by Doing Our Best, Doing What is Right, and Treating Others the Way We Would like to be Treated. We are looking forward to a strong finish to the 2023-2024 school year. 

    Stay connected to us through our website and weekly ParentLink messages sent every Sunday afternoon to provide you with an update of school events for the upcoming school week. 


    Wishing you well, 

    Janet Giancarli

    Mrs. Janet Giancarli, Principal
