From the Principal

Dear Families,

As we look forward to the future, we envision Farmin-Stidwell Elementary School as a place where excellence in education means educating the whole child. We aim to provide the knowledge, skills, abilities, attitudes and beliefs that are essential for a productive and successful 21st century life. We recognize that these goals are best achieved when the school provides an environment in which teachers, parents, staff and others develop and practice core values that benefit the academic, emotional and social needs of all children.

Strong communication between home and school forms the basis for the caring, nurturing, family atmosphere that is essential to Farmin-Stidwell Elementary School. This atmosphere promotes an excellence in teaching that results in high academic achievement and enables children to realize personal excellence at all levels.

We see Farmin-Stidwell Elementary school education as forming a sound foundation for life-long learning. All children can learn, and we can develop within each student the desire to know the tools to seek, and the ability to find, understand and use information as a means to becoming self-sufficient, responsible, and productive contributors to a complex, ever-changing, and diverse society. We seek a challenging and supportive learning environment that capitalizes on the natural curiosity of children as they explore all parts of the curriculum.

Join us in our Farmin-Stidwell Elementary school vision as we provide our future with endless opportunities to become learners and leaders in all aspects of their life. Let us work together to make Farmin-Stidwell Elementary a place children love to attend, a place in which parents believe their children are receiving an education second to none, and a place in which teachers express their joy of working with pride.

Yours in education,

Erik A. Olson, Principal

If you are interested in ELP you must complete the Experiential Learning Program Interest Form (attached file) and return to Farmin Stidwell Elementary School between April 9th, 2018 to May 11th, 2018 only.  Due to high volume of interest we receive, we will base our enrollment decision on the following:

  1. Completion of the Information Form (attachment below) 
  2.  We will evaluate the availability of open spaces based on grade level student numbers.  
  3. Once grade level spaces are determined we conduct a lottery system to fill those grade level vacancies. You will be notified of the decision by May 29, 2018  

Our goal is to create fair and equitable class sizes that benefit our students and staff.   If you are selected through the lottery system, your child must be registered at Farmin Stidwell and have all paperwork completed by June 8th, 2018.  If registration is not completed by this date your child will be dropped from the program.
