I love the diversity that Fayetteville Street Elementary School has. Elijah loves the friends he’s made, the teachers and the staff that he interacts with on a daily basis, it is nice to see him with a smile on his face at the end of every day.

I love the kind messages I receive everyday from his teachers, letting me know how his day went. I feel like Fayetteville Street Elementary is a family and we are very happy to be a part of that.

Yellow quotes

One thing that I love about Fayetteville Street Elementary is that everyone treats you like family. They have a great support system; they have been supporting me with my children throughout the years. I can remember when they would let my baby sit with the after school kids when I was running late. Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Tisedale have been my biggest supporters. They would take pictures in my absence, keep my kids when I was running late and discipline my children when it was needed. I truly love the bond and relationships that we have with the staff at Fayetteville St.

Yellow quotes

The small, close-knit environment makes this a uniquely wonderful environment. All staff members really support one another and there is a palpable sense of joy and perseverance throughout the building. The small class sizes make it so students can really feel valued and develop their social skills along with academic skills.

It is a family as we look out for the staff, faculty and students and even the parents. We work very closely and wear many hats because we are a small school.
