Dear Orvis Risner Families,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year! My name is Kyle Harrison and I am the principal at Orvis Risner Elementary. I am thrilled to be joining the Orvis Risner Family this school year. I have heard countless positive things about the students, staff, families, and the Orvis community as a whole. I can’t wait to jump in and continue the wonderful things already taking place here. This is my 15th year in education. Nine of those years will have been as a school administrator, with the other six as a classroom teacher.
Orvis Risner is a Conscious Discipline School. Conscious Discipline creates a compassionate school culture which has proven to increase self-regulation, sense of safety, connection, empathy and intrinsic motivation in both children and adults. We work to build a strong school family. Students are celebrated for talents they bring to the school and their classroom families. Teaching at Orvis Risner is a work of the heart. Our mission is to foster citizenship, leadership and scholarship in a safe and positive environment. I look forward to working alongside a dedicated staff and community to bring this mission to life on a daily basis.
Orvis Risner Elementary is an integral part of the Edmond community, and I am excited to be a part of that tradition. Please know that you are always welcome to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns. Together, we can assist our students in becoming tomorrow’s leaders!
