Welcome to Featherstone Elementary!
Dear Featherstone Families,
Welcome to the Featherstone website. We have recently changed web hosts and are updating our content. There may be sections of the site that are not updated yet. We ask for your patience as we work through the process.
Having recently completed my first year as principal at Featherstone, I would like to thank the school community for your support. The school year was very exciting. It was fun getting to know the students, staff, and families in this wonderful school. We laid the foundation for strengthening the home-school connection by establishing opportunities for increased participation in school events. Additionally, Featherstone Elementary School formed a strong Parent Teacher Organization during the 2015-16 school year. The focus on providing parents with a means to be involved in planning events and fundraising for students and families is certain to improve school culture. As leader of Featherstone, I believe that every child can achieve at high levels, particularly if the partnership between school and home is strong.
The upcoming school year promises to be exceptional, with new staff and upgrades to the facility. The theme for learning for the 2016-17 school year will be: FES World Cup of Learning: Game On. Teachers will incorporate this exciting theme into classroom activities throughout the year.
In closing, I welcome new families to Featherstone. You are joining a fantastic school community. We hope to see everyone on Friday, August 26, 2016 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. for Open House. This will be your opportunity to meet school staff and see the classrooms. I look forward to working closely with you to ensure that we continue to build upon Featherstone's tradition of excellence as a World-Class school. If you have any questions please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs. Daria Groover
