Welcome to the Fort Edward Elementary School!

Elementary School

May Message,

Every spring, the Grades 3-8 English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics Tests are administered to students across New York State.  This year, ELA tests were given on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 and Thursday, April 12, 2018.  All of our test taking students tried their best and worked really hard - I am so proud of them!  Our third and fourth grade students who were testing on computers were affected by the statewide computer system failure on Wednesday, April 11th that you may have heard about on the news.  I am happy to report that all of our student were able to complete and submit their tests later in the day, after the computer systems were fixed.  The students were very patient and flexible with the situation during this time, and showed great perseverance - our character trait for April! 

NYS Math tests will be given on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 and Wednesday, May 2, 2018. Math makeup tests will be given on Thursday, May 3, 2018.  New York State has provided some information for parents on their website, including a summary of “What Parents Need to Know” and “Frequently Asked Questions.”  Follow the links provided below to access these documents:

We are looking forward to some fun events here at school as well.  On Friday, April 20, 2018, students performed in our annual Dance Show at 1:30 pm in the Main Gym.  They did such an amazing job at this fun event!  Kindergarten screening for the 2018-2019 school year will be on May 9-11th.  If you have a four-year-old at home, please call our Elementary Guidance Counselor, Mrs. LeBarron, to schedule a screening appointment.  Our chorus and band students will perform in their spring concerts on May 15th and 23rd, respectively. Please pay attention to our school website, Facebook page, and Twitter feeds for updates.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to call me here at school.  Happy Spring!
