Principal's Message

Dear Parents, Caregivers, Staff and Students,

Congratulations on making it through the first marking period of the 2022-2023 school
year. I am proud of the hard work that the students, faculty and staff have been putting
forth to make this the best school year ever. Barack Obama Elementary prides itself on embracing the best educational practices
while providing a safe and nurturing learning environment for all students.  The staff at
Barack Obama Elementary works to ensure that all students receive high quality
instruction to meet the needs of each and every student.

As the school year progresses, I would like to remind everyone how vitally important it is
for students to attend school every day. Numerous absences equal lost instruction time
and we want our Barack Obama Stars to be as prepared as possible. Please assist us in
this endeavor. The lines of communication remain open and we are readily available for
assistance to ensure optimum success for students.

As a school community, we view parents as an essential partner in building a positive and
successful path for the students.  We encourage parents, guardians and family members
to volunteer because together we can accomplish anything. With this in mind, please
consider joining our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) to help in supporting all our
students and families.  Our PTO is a valuable ally that provides support. For more
information about the PTO, please reach out to the main office for details at 804-780-

Additionally, as the holiday season quickly approaches, I would like to take this
opportunity to wish a Happy Thanksgiving and very Happy Holiday season to all students,
parents, and staff. Thank you to everyone for making Barack Obama Elementary the best
school in Richmond!
Mrs. Jennifer K. Moore
