My name is Amy Donnelly Roche and I am honored to serve as the Principal of this wonderful school.  Fort Barton Elementary School educates students from Kindergarten through Fourth Grade. Having been both a general and special educator at the elementary grades, I pledge to you that your children will be challenged and supported, both academically and socially, at our school.

Fort Barton is a strong school community.  It is my privilege to lead an outstanding staff and partner with you as parent/guardians.  We are proud to support children and their families, and work hard to provide an inclusive school environment.  I know that we’ll be working closely with you to ensure the success and well being of your child(ren.)

Partnering with families is more crucial than ever this year as we face the challenges of the global pandemic.   We appreciate your support as you work with students at home to practice safety protocols such as wearing a face covering and washing hands thoroughly. We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following our district website for important updates and information regarding our reopening plans. You can find our plans here.

If any parent plans on having their child learn remotely while face to face instruction is offered at school (keeping your child at home rather than coming into school), please send me an email as soon as possible. We’d like to plan for those supports as far ahead as possible.

It is my belief that strong elementary school experiences cultivate curiosity and a love for learning which remain with students forever, becoming the foundation for their future learning, and success.  It’s an honor to support your child(ren)’s education. I’m looking forward to a wonderful school year.
