The mission of Felida Elementary School is to create a caring, friendly and stimulating environment that encourages individuals to achieve their full potential and become responsible and compassionate citizens.
In addition, Friday Folders may be used to return forms to school each Monday.
Only the youngest child in a family will receive all school memos; their folder will be red. This avoids duplication and saves paper.
If a Friday Folder is lost, parents should send a note to their child’s teacher. The PTA will replace the folder.
In the spring, we host a recess running program called Mileage Club, which reinforces cardiovascular fitness.
Our school has a long history in the Felida area of Vancouver, Washington. The original schoolhouse building still stands, representing the Felida School District, which was established in 1896. The district later consolidated with the Salmon Creek District in 1950 to become the Felida-Salmon Creek District No. 116. Not long after that, it consolidated again with the Vancouver School District in 1954.
The current Felida Elementary building was built in 1978 and expanded in 2005 to what you see today.
