Principal's Message

Dear Barack Obama Star Students, Parents, and Staff,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year, and welcome back to Barack Obama Elementary School! Last year was challenging, but I am so proud of the hard work that all of you did to make the year successful.  The support the administration and faculty of Barack Obama Elementary provides to our students and their families, and how deeply we care about the safety and health of your children, are paramount to making a successful school year.

We’re excited to make the 2023-2024 school year one of our best yet as we welcome new families and continue fostering positive relationships with our returning ones. At Barack Obama Elementary, we strive to provide productive, innovative, and rewarding learning experiences for each student in a safe and nurturing environment. 

In order for this school year to be successful, parental support is key to your child’s achievement. As the school year begins, 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 Obama Stars to shine.  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. 

The safety of our children is and will continue to be one of our top priorities. The 2023-2024 Barack Obama Elementary Parent and Student Handbook will be posted soon and will outline our routines and procedures.    

Together we can make it a great year.  We are so grateful to have the opportunity to teach your children, and thank you for making Barack Obama Elementary the best school in Richmond!


Mrs. Jennifer K. Moore

Principal, Barack Obama Elementary
