Principal's Corner

Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! It is an extreme honor to serve the scholars of Richard J. Oglesby and the Auburn-Gresham community. Although I became the principal on March 28th in many ways it is still brand new and I have enjoyed having the summer to plan for the year ahead.

I am very proud of the successes we had last year in the short amount of time after my arrival and can only imagine the greatness that lies ahead of us in 2017!

We have planned some exciting events for this year and are looking forward to having 100% parent participation. We have family events almost every month in addition to our LSC and PAC meetings. All of these are opportunities for you to get involved in your child’s education and we hope that you will join us and partner with us to make Oglesby the premier school in our community!

Our mission is to improve academic outcomes for our students and instill a love of learning in them that will carry them to the college and career of their choice. We saw a glimpse of how our scholars can excel and rise to the challenge last year and we plan to support them as they soar even higher this year!

Feel free to stop by the main office to speak with me at any time or email me at If I am not able to meet with you at that moment I will set up a time to meet that works for all parties. I look forward to working with you this year to help your child have their most successful year ever!

With Oglesby PRIDE,

Principal Henderson
