|ABOUT FEATHERSTONE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL |
In December 1961, Featherstone opened its doors to grades one through seven. The Mascot was Chief Featherstone and students organized a Student Council, Safety Patrol and a school choir. The PTA taught ballet classes and held a yearly carnival and parade through the neighborhoods complete with teachers’ cars decorated for the event.
Communities served are Marumsco Woods, Featherstone Shores, State Streets, Misty Ridge & Heather Glenn.
|SPECIAL PROGRAMS & EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES |
Featherstone hosts a multitude of family workshops, Kindergarten PAC, 1st grade Rookie Readers and 2nd grade Camp-Ins.
In addition, an award winning Culture Club designed to expose students to our primary school cultures which are African American, Hispanic and Asian. We also offer a summer library experience complete with celebrity readers and arts & crafts.
Third, fourth and fifth grade boys and girls are encouraged to participate in spring Science Club and fall Walk across America. Gar-Field High School Indianettes will conduct a “Step Dance Team” Camp and a Children’s Theatre is in the planning stages.
|OPPORTUNTIES FOR PARENT & COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT |
Featherstone is served by a PTO where every parent is a member. Providing Family Fun Nights, funding a Recess Aid, subsidizing field trips, and fundraising are their primary focuses.
|WHAT MAKES FEATHERSTONE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL UNIQUE? |
Featherstone is a community school where our hearts, hands and minds are shaping the future. Hearts – the self-esteem and pride each child brings to the learning process. Hands – the hard work and active participation of both students and teachers in the learning process. Minds – the acquisition and utilization of knowledge as children prepare for the future. This is the credo we share as a community of learners.
