It's a Brand New Day!

Message from the Elementary Principal 

August 2023 

Dear Green Bear Families: 

It is great to be in the Village serving you and your children for a third year as the principal of Ottawa Hills Elementary School. As a former student in both district buildings and a class of 1993 alumnus, I understand the local importance of working together with families, students, and staff to provide an atmosphere of academic excellence.

For the past 25 years, I served as a teacher and elementary principal at two local public school systems: Washington Local Schools and Sylvania Schools. Prior to becoming a principal, I enjoyed teaching Kindergarten, 4th Grade, 5th Grade, and 6th Grade. 

On a personal note, I am a dad to two amazing kids. Daughter Charley will be a sophomore at The Ohio State University this fall and son Jack is a rising Junior at Southview High School. I am also the proud husband of Alyssa Bauer, herself a former villager who has been teaching kindergarten in Sylvania for over 20 years. Our family enjoys traveling, cooking, and family movie nights. 

My no. 1 priority continues to be focused on building positive communication, relationships, and morale among our students, families, and staff. To achieve this goal, I will continue to be visible and accessible to everyone involved. You will see me at the arrival and drop-off circle, in the halls, in classrooms, on the playground, and at community events. My door will always be open to you.  

From one Green Bear to another … it’s a great day at OHES! Please know I welcome your feedback and encourage your participation in our school. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 419-536-8329 or I look forward to a safe and successful school year. 


Dr. Jeremy Bauer, Principal
