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.

Ford Elementary School is a community dedicated to achieving academic success through hard work and effort, sharing responsibility for a safe and supportive environment.  All students will demonstrate the ability to work together, think critically, solve problems, and communicate effectively to ensure they are career and college ready.

About School Councils
A school council is a representative, school building-based committee composed of the principal, parents, teachers, community members and, at the secondary level, students, required to be established by each school pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 71, Section 59C.

It is important to note the School Council plays an advisory role in assisting the building principal to organize and implement a School Improvement Plan which not only addresses the areas in which the school intends to comply with the requirements of the Educational Reform Act, but also how the school intends to meet those system-wide goals and policies adopted by the school committee. Membership will consist of the principal, teachers, parents, students and community members.
Our Bulletin Board and Posting Archive

In the month of October, Ford families came to school to pick up learning materials that included a fun Autumn activity. 

First graders made a “Falling for Me” tree telling us all about themselves while creating beautiful Autumn trees. 

Second and third graders were able to create a fall wreath using tissue paper leaves in all the Autumn colors.  Fourth and fifth graders received scratch art leaves to tap into their creativity to make gorgeous Autumn leaves.  Here are some of the results of our creative Ford scholars!!
