Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members,

I want to take this opportunity to say hello and welcome our students back to school.  I will be the PK-12 Interim Principal for the 2021-2022 school year.  I am proud to be back at our school and in a position that I held for 13 years while here at Fort Edward.  After serving here, I was the Superintendent of Abraham Wing School until my retirement in 2019.  Since then, I have held Interim Principal positions in Whitehall and Hudson Falls.

I am looking forward to the start of school and having all students back in classes five days a week.  Our teachers and staff have been working hard this summer preparing for an exciting and successful school year.  We are hopeful that we can bring back important activities for our students and community to enjoy such as concerts, Science Fairs, Art Shows, plays, a regular sports season, and other events to showcase the talents of our students. 

We are excited to see our students experience success and achieve their goals this year.  We will need the help of our parents as we take a team-approach in supporting all students.  It is important that students are here everyday in order for us to provide them with the best opportunities to learn and grow.  It is our hope that they get involved in school activities beyond the classroom so they can make new friends and have new experiences.  

Just a reminder that our first day of school is Thursday, September 9th.  Students attending our BOCES program should be here September 8th for an 11:20am bus departure.  All drop-off and pick-up procedures are the same as last year.  If you have any questions that we can help you with, please feel free to call the school at (518) 747-4529.  Again, we are ready and excited to see you!


John Godfrey
