About Fern Persons Elementary

 Fern Persons Elementary School
Grades Prekindergarten-3rd

Our elementary students are taught and nurtured by 26 professional staff, who are deeply committed to helping each of them be successful students. Six secretaries, custodians, and food service staff keep the elementary school running smoothly and efficiently. Fifteen para-professionals provide individual attention to our students and assistance to our teach. 

The staff at F.P.E. focuses primarily on developing students' literacy and mathematics skills.Traditional self-contained classrooms are designed to meet the needs of all students. We are also proud to offer full-day Kindergarten. A full-time elementary science teacher provides quality science instruction for our elementary students. Our full-time elementary Student Support Coordinator works with students and families in need, as well as coordinates our award-winning character education program.

A child-care program, both before and after school, assists families with that need. A pre-school class funded by the Michigan School Readiness Program serves at-risk 4-year-old children. Elementary students are exposed to various career options through our Career Preparation programs. The elementary school has a fully equipped computer lab and each classroom houses at least two computers for student use. As the school song says, "F.P.E. is the place to be" for our district's youngest students.
