My name is Ashley Templeton and I am excited and honored to be the principal of Oconee Elementary School. OCES is a wonderful school full of dedicated and caring teachers and staff! I look forward to leading and supporting them as they teach every student, every day. Our mission at OCES is to create a warm, nurturing environment for all students providing:

O Opportunities to Excel
C Care and Concern for Others
E Education for the Total Child
S Success in Life-long Learning

Playing an active role in your child’s education is essential for student success. I encourage you to regularly communicate with your child’s teachers, read with your child each night and be involved in the school in any way you can.

My philosophy is to always put kids first. With this, know that all decisions made are done with “kids first” in mind. OCES is known for opening arms to everyone that walks in the door and that will continue. OCES is family and home to me. I want you to feel and be part of the OCES family! Go Chiefs!!
