Vision & Mission


At FES, we will actively engage in a supportive, collaborative, and rigorous learning community that nurtures and builds a foundation for lifelong success.



The mission of Federalsburg Elementary School is to ensure a nurturing and safe learning environment that is centered on students’ needs in partnership with their home and our community. Together we will build a strong foundation for college and career-level academic achievement by challenging our students academically and socially.

To achieve this mission we will live by these guiding principles:

Our students will commit to meeting high academic and social expectations by being ready, respectful, and responsible learners, taking risks, attending school every day, and treating others with respect.

Our teachers will hold students to high expectations through a rigorous and engaging curriculum including problem-based learning and hands-on, investigative inquiry. Teachers will empower students to take responsibility for their learning and will collaborate in a professional and collegial manner; to ensure that students have the strategies and tools needed to become lifelong learners. Our teachers will welcome parents and community members as partners.

Our parents are our partners in fostering the education of all of our children. We welcome families to conferences, parent nights, and school events to celebrate, learn, teach us, and give their input in this shared responsibility.

Our community is encouraged to share our vision through local business and organization sponsorship and volunteering.

Through collaboration, all members will develop a professional learning community that supports and holds each team member accountable for a positive, child-centered, rigorous learning environment at Federalsburg Elementary School.


Title I

Title I is a federal program to help all students get a good education and meet academic standards. Title I funds are used to pay for Reading and Math Resource teachers, materials used for interventions, and parenting activities. When schools, families and community groups work together, children achieve more, stay in school longer, and enjoy school more. 

Parents of elementary students may request in writing to the school principal information about their child's teacher including: 

  • Any college or university degree or certification held. 
  • The subject area of the teacher's degree or certification. 
  • Whether the teacher is certified by the State of Maryland to teach a grade level or subject area. 
  • Whether the teacher holds a provisional certificate. 
  • Whether the child is served by paraprofessionals and, if so, parents may request their professional

School Improvement Plan

School-Family Engagement Plan

We recognize the importance and value of partnership between the school and parents. We have created a school-parent contract that outlines the school’s commitment to education, as well as expectations for students and parents.

FES School Family Engagement Compact

Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

The Mission of the Federalsburg Elementary PTA is threefold:


  • To support and speak on behalf of children and youth in the schools, in the community, and before government bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children;
  • To assist parents in developing the skills they need to raise and protect their children; and
