Welcome to the Fort Edward Elementary School!

Elementary School

June Message,

Once again, the school year has flown by and summer vacation is almost upon us! It has been an eventful year and I am excited to look back on the many programs brought on to enhance the student experience here at Fort Edward Elementary. From the implementation of our Specialized Reading Program, Homework Club, Pick a Reading Partner Month and assemblies with author Michelle Nelson-Schmidt and singer-songwriter Jim McCarthy, to our wonderful teachers working hard to provide special events, such as the first grade Gingerbread Play, the third grade International Bazaar, and our upcoming fifth grade trip to “Poco.”

Fort Edward Elementary has practiced a positive school environment through programs such as PBIS (Positive Behavior Supports and Interventions), Character Education, as well as fun events for our kids like our pep rally, dance show, and Halloween parade. Students have been active in the community, visiting the Fort Hudson Nursing Home, Old Fort Museum, Up Yonda Farms, and Adirondack Animal Land. The community has been active in our school as well, with programs such as the VSP Vision Program, the HHHN Dental Program, Backpack Program, and Operation Santa. Many students participate in community groups such as youth sports, Girl Scouts, Band and Chorus, and PTO sponsored events like the Christmas Shop and Book Fairs. It sure has been a busy year, and we are so proud of the progress our students have made.

As the school year comes to a close, please take a moment to mark your calendars for the many events happening this June. One of our favorite events is Field Day, scheduled for Friday, June 1, 2018. Field Day starts at 9:15 am and ends at approximately 1:00 pm. Families are welcome and encouraged to attend! Parents who would like to take their children home at the end of Field Day may do so - please send a note in to your child’s teacher that morning, and sign out with the teacher when you leave at 1:00 pm. Students not signed out will remain in school until regular dismissal at 2:34 pm and will be dismissed according to their normal dismissal plan. As always, on behalf of Fort Edward Elementary, I thank you for your support of our students and school. Placement letters for next year will be sent home in mid-late August. We look forward to seeing the boys and girls when they return to school in September. I hope everyone has a restful, wonderful summer!
