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.

Featherstone is served by an active PTO supporting students and staff through their fundraising efforts. They sponsor opportunities for families to enjoy various events throughout the school year. Please join us for monthly meetings that are held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 5:30 p.m. We are always looking for new members and volunteers.  The PTO hosts multiple restaurant nights, movie nights, bingo night, a Fun Run, and various other activities to support students and teachers with supplies, technology, and field trip assistance.


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.
