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
By Joanne M. LaRivee
The temperatures outdoors are rising as we head into one of the busiest parts of the school year. As we end the month of April, the students in grades 3 and 5 will participate in “Planting Day” in the Ford School garden. This takes place on Friday, April 29th.

The PARCC tests were delivered prior to April
Vacation. School staff members have been busy training and preparing to administer these new Math and ELA/Literacy assessments starting April 25th. PARCC is a timed test, unlike MCAS, and should reduce the overall testing time for students a bit. The format of the questions is different than MCAS in many ways, so teachers have been exposing students to the practice questions over the last few weeks in their classes so that students feel prepared for the change in testing formats.

A special note about testing days: Please be sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and is present and on time each day of scheduled testing. We know the tests are challenging and will require their best attention and effort to complete. Thank you for supporting their hard work! Check the calendar to see when students are taking a test in grades 3, 4, and 5.

The month of May kicks off with Teacher Appreciation Week. I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to the talented teaching and support staff of the Ford Elementary School. You are the difference! You make Ford School a great place for students to learn, create, think, and grow!
