Dear Families,

Welcome back! Joseph Ferderbar Elementary School is destined for amazing things in 2016-2017. The gifts and talents of our students combined with the dedication and passion of our teachers allows us to strive for excellence. Excellence is not the result of a good intention or clever slogan. It is not a value that is easily achieved. It comes from a strong desire to improve how we do things when we see something we can do better. We continue to work hard to ensure that Joseph Ferderbar Elementary School will be recognized as a school that sets their students and teachers up for success. As we strive for excellence, we will move from Good to GREAT.

Joseph Ferderbar Elementary School is a great place to be. I believe that strong community- school relationships are essential to high academic achievement. Find any successful school and you will also find parents and community members that are involved and supportive of the school. This community recognizes the value of educational and extra-curricular activities. Therefore, our school expects our students to excel both inside and outside of the classroom. I hope you are proud of our students as they reflect these expectations through their character and commitment. Your support is greatly appreciated and remember – IT’S GREAT TO BE A PANTHER!


Judy Brown, Proud Principal

Ferderbar in action!

 AP Environmental Science students from Neshaminy High School assisted a class of fourth-grade students at Ferderbar Elementary School in building a water filter as part of their studies of the Ganges River in India. The lab took place at Poquessing Middle School in February, 2016.
