Principal's Message
Welcome to the Somerville Elementary School website!

Somerville Elementary School is a dynamic learning community with a population of 400 students in grades kindergarten through five. Upon entering the school, it is clear that Somerville is a school where everyone counts. In addition to spending time learning together, the staff, students and families play together and develop lifelong relationships. It is truly a special world here at Somerville. Parents and teachers work together to provide an academically challenging curriculum and culturally rich environment through a varied selection of materials, field trips and assemblies for all of our children.

On the website we have included essential information for parents and visitors to become better acquainted with Somerville School. Parents are encouraged to refer to the online Policies and Procedures/Handbook. Many of your questions will be answered as you review this information. Also the school calendar highlights important school events, and there are many!

As always, you are invited to contact me with any questions and concerns.
