*Staff of the Week*

Ms. Martha has been an integral part of our Obsidian communication with our families during CDL. She is always ready and willing to translate and interpret for our Spanish speaking families. She is working around the clock to help our students, teachers, and families.

Thank you, Martha! 

As we prepare for students’ return to campus, here is our voluntary school supply list for Hybrid Learning.
Backpacks are important as lockers will not be used during Hybrid.
Please contact us at (541) 923-4900 or our FAN Advocate, Tamira Gates, for any assistance with school supplies. Her email is in the link.

Our Principal

I’m Jensine Peterson and it is an honor to serve as Principal of Obsidian Middle School. I believe a child’s future is in the making and that each day is an opportunity to expand their lifelong opportunity. As a fellow parent, I believe educating our children is the most important investment we make each day. 

 

An educator since 2004, I am the first in my family to attend college.  I earned my Bachelor of Science Education from Northern Arizona University and my Masters in School Administration from Concordia University. I’ve taught both middle and high school in the public and private sectors, and in both rural and urban areas. From 2013-2020, I served as Assistant Principal of Ridgeview High School. I’m proud to call the Redmond School District my community.   

 

2020-21 is a year like none other. Starting school in a comprehensive distance learning model brings unique opportunities and challenges. I am committed to leading Obsidian Middle School to be the best distance learning school in all of Central Oregon!  We’ll achieve this goal by focusing on Collaboration, Connectivity, and Care during this unique school year.  

 

Our Theme this year is “Here We Are.” Even though we’re all learning from different locations this fall, we are ONE WOLFPACK ~ united through our love for learning and passion for creating a bright future for our community. Our top-notch educators are embracing this year as a unique moment in your child’s life ~ and we’re making it count! Our team is passionate about bringing structure, rigor, compassion, and achievement to your child – even if they don’t come to our physical campus each day.  

 

Should your child or family need any support this school year, please reach out and let our team know. We stand ready to serve and to remove barriers to learning out of every child’s way. 

 

Please introduce yourself when we have the good fortune of crossing paths! It’s an honor to partner with you in educating your scholar.
