Greetings O’Keeffe Family,

At O’Keeffe Middle School we believe that a quality education is one of the most important things in the lives of the children we serve and the community we serve in. Like the artist for whom our school is named, we want our students to have purpose, artistry, and carry a social justice spirit that will change the world around them.  At O’Keeffe we ask our students and our staff to be their B.E.S.T.  Be engaged, Everyone’s voice is heard, Support and Safe, and Treat everything and everyone with respect. We believe that if students embody this mantra that they will be community, college, and career ready. 

When you walk into our school, expect to feel positivity. Expect to see staff working to provide rigorous learning experiences. Expect to see a school filled with pride. We are committed to creating a welcoming and safe school environment that Georgia O’Keeffe, herself, would want to paint. 

As principal of this amazing school, I have had the opportunity to carry on the proud tradition of excellence. We have a talented staff, and I believe that the work that we are doing will close achievement gaps and push all students to new heights. My challenge to all who are reading this is to embrace our mission of equity and excellence and find a way to work in partnership with us. Volunteer, become a tutor, be in touch with the teachers of your students, bring your artistry to our school. Whatever it is, be part of the movement to make all schools in our district great, but especially our beloved O’Keeffe.

Feel free to contact me anytime at (608) 204-6822 or trdugas@madison.k12.wi.us.

Your PrinciPal,

Tony Dugas
