Welcome to Fawn Hollow Elementary School!

We are happy that you took the time to visit us! Located in Monroe, CT, Fawn Hollow is a vibrant school, serving approximately 500 students in kindergarten through grade five.When you enter our doors you will immediately notice the colorful artwork on our walls and the bright smiles on the faces of everyone you meet. Fawn Hollow Elementary School is a community of learners where children are cherished and challenged. Each and every day staff works to fulfill our mission...

To provide a nurturing and challenging environment fostered by a collaborative effort between school and community to cultivate innovative lifelong learners and responsible citizens.

To achieve our mission staff are immersed in on-going professional learning activities. We work collaboratively as professional teams to strengthen our learner-centered classrooms. We use data from formal and informal assessments to help guide our thinking on how to improve our school. We employ technology as a tool to develop learning, communication, and information skills. Our children study art and music to help broaden and develop their young minds. Our developmental guidance program addresses social issues and develops important life skills for children. We are committed to maintaining a safe and nurturing school climate for all of our Fawn Hollow citizens. Through our community service program, Kids With A Cause, students learn social responsibility.Our staff members are passionate about providing a rigorous, exciting educational experience for our students.

While it is Monroe's largest elementary school, those connected with Fawn Hollow are quick to mention the family spirit that permeates the school. At Fawn Hollow we believe student success is dependent upon the strong partnership that is forged between student, teacher and parent. Communication with home is on-going and established in various ways. The district has an informative website and we use School Messenger to provide parents with the most up-to-date information. We work hand-in-hand with our dynamic PTO.Fawn Hollow parents generously volunteer their time to provide programs and events which enhance and enrich our children's educational experience. This partnership allows the adults in our community to work collaboratively toward meeting the needs of our students. We encourage you to visit our PTO website at www.fawnhollowpto.org to learn about and participate in this amazing organization.

We are very proud of the great things happening at Fawn Hollow! Please feel free to contact your child's teacher or me with any questions or concerns throughout the school year.

Most sincerely,
