Principal's Corner

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Feltwell Elementary School, home of the hedgehogs! We pride ourselves in having a small-school climate of caring for each student. Our focus is to ensure that every student is College and Career Ready by using the DoDEA curriculum with scaffolding and engagement strategies. We recite our purpose statement, “I am calm. I am respectful. I am responsible. I am ready to learn” to set the tone for learning each and every day.

The staff is among the best in DoDEA and is committed to the success of all students. We collaborate with our stakeholders to create an environment conducive to developing their highest academic potential and nurturing emotional, physical, and social development. We encourage you to be active with the school community by volunteering in your child’s classroom, sharing your skills with students to provide real world experiences, and joining our dynamic and supportive Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and School Advisory Committee (SAC). PTO and SAC sponsor many activities for students and families during the school year such as Annual Career Day, Fall and Spring Book Fairs, Fall Fest, Spring Fling, and the monthly Hedgehog Hangout.

At Feltwell Elementary School, we believe in developing and recognizing the character as essential for every student. Our Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) program recognizes students who display positive behavior and actions.

I am very proud of our school. I look forward to meeting and working in partnership with you and our students!


Yours in education,

Dr. Bernadette Schlueter
