Welcome To The Robert L. Ford School

The Ford Elementary School is a welcoming school community that embraces the diverse nature of our school population.  At Ford, we celebrate individual differences among children and set high expectations for them.  Our goal is to help our students become caring and responsible individuals in the school community who treat each other with respect and courtesy.  Our focus is to develop cooperation and also individual effort with our students so that each child will acquire skills that will help him/her to become a lifelong learner. Working together as a team in each classroom is important to building character and developing academic skills.  
All children deserve to feel safe, supported, healthy, challenged, and engaged.  The Robert L. Ford School community is made up of students, teachers and parents who work together every day to nurture a safe and caring environment that supports academic as well as social-emotional growth for each Ford student.  Parents and teachers who collaborate together make a strong support team for each student.  Together we will build a culture of academic success.

Message from the Principal

Happy New Year to all! With another calendar year behind us, we give pause to reflect on all the accomplishments of the past year as we look forward to many interesting adventures to come.  This year, we will continue to build our opportunities for developing creative minds and critical thinkers- the core of our vision for our school.

Ford students at each grade level were given a book to read over Christmas Break.  Students in grade 1 were given “Pete the Cat” to read.  In grade 2, students read “The Mystery of the Hidden Room”.  Grade 3 students read “Cam Jansen and the Snowy Day Mystery”.  Grade 4 students read “My Name is Maria Isabel”.  Grade 5 students read “Stone Fox”.  Teachers provided an assignment for the books.  I hope all parents took time to look at the book with their child and to read with their children over school vacation.  The students will be able to keep the books to add to their home libraries. 

As we begin this New Year, my hope is that 2016 will be the best year ever for staff, students and families at the Ford School.  Together we make a great team as we work to support students to make academic progress every day.

Happy New Year!
Best,
Joanne M. LaRivee
