Welcome to our Ott Elementary website! This is my eighth year as Principal at Ott. My teaching experiences include first and third grade in Northside ISD. I am happy to say I am a former military dependent and have called San Antonio my home since my father’s retirement from the Air Force. I live in Northside and have two children who also attend school in Northside. I love this city and feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to be an educator for Northside ISD.

Thank you for actively participating in your child’s education. It is important that your child sees you proactive and involved in their education. Our teachers truly appreciate your support and look forward to working closely with you this year.

Our school theme this year “New Growth, Stronger Roots #RootedAtOtt” encompasses the strong foundation we have established here at Ott, and the academic and social emotional growth to come this academic year. Our Ott spirit shirts reflect the theme and can be purchased in our school office for $10. We encourage our students and staff to wear their shirts on Fridays and college shirts on the last Wednesday of every month. Academic planners for 4th and 5th grade students can also be purchased in our school office for $7.

We urge all families to join our PTA this year; membership is only $8.00. Our PTA Executive Board is an amazing group of dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly to support our students and campus.

In addition to being a Professional Learning Community, we will continue to work collaboratively with all stakeholders to ensure high levels of learning for all of our students. I look forward to this academic year and working closely in building relationships with our students and parents.

Please don’t forget to stay connected with Ott Elementary and Ott PTA by following us on these social media platforms:

We are using these particular social media platforms as a campus to showcase the wonderful things that occur daily at Ott. This includes teacher highlights of student learning, daily instruction, and campus activities.

I am looking forward to having an Ott-some year with our students, parents, and staff!

Kind regards,
Principal Bueno

Howdy Trailblazers!

My name is Roxanne Olvera, and I am the PROUD Associate Principal of Ott Elementary! My Northside career has been serving as a 3rd Bilingual Teacher, 4th ESL Teacher, Math Specialist and Administrator Intern.

I received my bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus on bilingual education from Texas A&M University at College Station and a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Texas A&M University at San Antonio.

I believe that together we can empower, motivate and support each other in order to help our students reach their fullest potential and high levels of success. I look forward to working with all of our Ott-Some students, parents, staff, and community!
