My name is Debra Oge. I am the proud instructional leader of Guess Elementary School.
It is my 29th year in the field of education and I am proud to say that I started my career
right here at Guess Elementary. The mission statement here at Guess Elementary states that
the Guess Team, which is comprised of administrators, staff, teachers, parents and students
will function as a cooperative, knowledgeable, positive and compassionate group. We will provide
instruction through preparation, open-mindnessness and individual approaches. Every student
will grow in a safe learning environment where students are loved, nurtured and challenged
to grow into lifelong learners. Our value statement, our motto - "Where All Students Lasso
Success". We chose this because our mascot is the cowboy, so we thought, what better way -
we are going to lasso success. I am honored to serve guess students. I take every opportunity to let
our parents know that I certainly have an open door policy and they can reach me anytime.
In fact, I spend many hours here working toward the success of children. I need our parents to
understand that the community, the school and the students are like a tripod and if one is weak
then the tripod falls. That is true with the students, parents and teachers; so we firmly believe
that communication is the key. I certainly appreciate the opportunity that our parents give us each
day to teach their children. We certainly have the desire and dedication. I work with what I call -
"A Dream Team of Teachers" who come to work every single day dedicated to teaching your children.
Thank you for the opportunity to contribute to your child's education. Guess Elementary staff is are
certainly dedicated to the success of your child. Thank you.
