Welcome Back

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at Fredericktown Elementary School. I hope you have had a great summer and you are ready to start school. We have been working hard to prepare for the beginning of the school year and there is an excitement in the air for your arrival. As our students arrive, I look forward to getting reacquainted with current parents and meeting new ones. Please know that you can stop or call anytime to talk. You can also call the office and we can set a time together.

Thank you ... welcome!

Matt Caputo, Principal

Supporting Our Students - Guidance and Counselors Update

Our priority is to ensure the safety and well-being of our students. We encourage everyone to actively participate in creating a nurturing environment that promotes open communication, empathy, and understanding. If you know a student who may need support, or if you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to our social workers or school counselors. Working together, we can make a profound difference in the lives of our students.
