The Magnet Schools of Merit Awards, conducted by Magnet Schools of America, recognize magnet schools “that show a commitment to high academic standards, curriculum innovation, successful desegregation/diversity efforts, specialized teaching staffs, and parent and community involvement.”
Farmington Woods Elementary IB/PYP School earned the 2013 Magnet School of Excellence award.
In 2011, Farmington Woods Elementary was named the top magnet elementary school in the nation.
The Idling Reduction Campaign aims to make the air cleaner and healthier for our kids at the school. A presentation was given on this issue at the hand bell choir program before the holiday break.
Volunteers are always a big part of successful implementation of all such campaigns and we need you all and your much valued and appreciated time and effort for this one too.
