Farmington Elementary School is located in the Town of Farmington, six miles east of Kewaskum. It is a school with approximately 215 students and 20 staff. Staff is collaborative and approachable, and always willing to help students and parents. FES has acres of open fields, prairie gardens, and forest trails. The outside is similar to the inside where the feeling is warm and welcoming. Our focus is student learning, and we believe all students can learn and succeed. FES is a smaller school in a rural setting, but our students have big opportunities.
In order to improve students learning, technology has become a very important part of our instruction. Most of our classrooms have interactive smart boards, and with help from our actively involved PTO, we have acquired iPads to use on a daily basis within our classrooms. We are excited to share that this upcoming school year we will see even more devices! With support from our District Instructional Technology Team, we will be close to a 2:1 ratio for devices!
Another strength of our school is our parent involvement. Whether it is through the PTO or as a classroom or school volunteer, parents and guardians make a difference. Our PTO plans and holds fun events throughout the year, purchases supplies and technology, and funds school assemblies. With engaged and dedicated parents in our school, FES is a great place to learn!
As part of their education, our students have opportunities to take part in Student Government, Fuel Up to Play 60, Destination Imagination, choir concerts, intramurals, field trips, and assemblies. During the 2014-15 school year through the Fuel Up to Play 60 program, FES was one of six schools in the state recognized by former Green Bay Packer Donald Driver as showing leadership in healthy living!
Farmington Elementary is a great place to learn with its devoted and caring staff and parents, positive atmosphere, and focus on academics. We continue to work closely with our staff, parents, PTO, and community to make FES a place your child will succeed academically and socially!
