Welcome to Fernley Elementary
Thank you for visiting our website! I hope that you are able to find everything you need to know about Fernley Elementary here.
Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year! We are very excited about all the changes at FES this year. We have had many upgrades to the safety of the campus with perimeter fencing and new offices. In addition, we have a new parking lot! This will help with parking lot issues and there are new lights that will keep our parking lot lit up and safer for walking in the early mornings and later evening events.
This year I will have been at FES for six years, and this is my fifth year as the Principal. I love my job and all our students! We have a wonderful staff at FES to support your child. We have a heavy focus on Math, Reading, and Writing in our curriculum. We also have a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) Program that every student gets for 40 minutes per week. In addition, our students have bi-weekly counseling sessions, PE classes, and Computer classes. Many of our classrooms have one to one devices. We use FOSS kits for Science, Reader’s and Writer’s Workshops for Reading and Writing, and EngageNY Math as our main curriculum materials. We follow the Nevada Academic Content Standards.
We have many fun and exciting events at FES like Monthly Movie Nights, Egg Drop, Field Day, Awards Assemblies, we participate in the STEM Festival, Christmas Concerts, and many more exciting events.
We work hard to ensure that every student as FES is growing academically with quarterly Achievement Conferences. At these conferences, I meet with every teacher and we project student data onto a screen in my office, discussing each and every student and how we can better intervene in their growth and achievement. You are always welcome to come discuss your child’s progress and data with me—I collect it all and have it at my fingertips.
Here’s to a great School Year! We are so excited to kick it off!
