It is with great joy that I introduce myself as the new principal of Southwood Elementary School. My name is Allison Garske, and I come to you from a nearby school here in the Southeast Learning Community.

I have served the students of OCPS for almost 20 years, and pride myself in building relationships with students and their families, understanding the unique needs of individual students, with a background in both exceptional student education and behavior that I think will support my work as the principal here at Southwood.

Student learning is a priority for me, and I know every student will have a promising and successful future if we all work together!


I look forward to getting to know everyone in the upcoming year and will be hosting a meet and greet before school starts. Look for information in early July. I hope to see many families then, and hope you are enjoying your time together this summer before we embark upon another exciting year here at Southwood!
