Home / Office / Principal / Doreen Oelke




 Welcome to South Elementary Early Learning Center

My name is Mrs. Doreen Oelke and I am the new principal at South. I am originally from Janesville, but I have taught for the past 28 years at the  K-3 level within the Waseca Public Schools. I am very excited to begin my new endeavor with Saint Peter Public Schools! I look forward to meeting all of the students and their families and immerse myself in this progressive community.

 It has been a busy summer around South ELC! The custodial staff is working hard to keep building projects on schedule and prepare classrooms for the fall. Staff members have been involved in curriculum writing, educational training, and collaborating on initiatives for the 2014-2015 school year. The  Extended School Year and ALC Summer programs are in full swing. Letters have gone out regarding classroom placement . If you have any questions, or you are new to the district and would like to enroll your child, please contact us.

I  have been so impressed by not only the quality of programming that is in place, but more specifically  by the passion and dedication to children I have witnessed in so many ways. I am confident that great things are happening and will continue to happen within our school district.

Learning is journey, not a destination. Enjoy your Summer Break!
