We are so thrilled to welcome Fife Elementary families back to school for the 2021-2022 school year, in person and five days a week! The beginning of a new school year is always an exciting time for our students, families, and the school’s staff!  At Fife Elementary, it is our priority to foster a community where all children will feel loved, respected and encouraged to develop to their fullest potential. As your principal, I am dedicated to supporting you and our community and can’t wait to get students into Fife Elementary School,  Home of the Falcons!  Go Falcons!!!

If you weren’t already aware, Fife Elementary is a brand new school, opening this Fall 2021, which is located on the same campus as Fife High School.  Fife Elementary School (FES)  will house students in grades K-5, including approximately 800 students.  We have been planning for your return to school and we couldn’t be more excited!  Please keep up to date with information by checking your emails and visiting our websites above, especially with the frequent safety updates regarding COVID19.


Lastly, I am Amy Mittelstaedt, your principal at Fife Elementary School! This will be my 22nd year in education as an administrator and teacher, teaching a variety of grades starting from Kindergarten through 9th grade. I am a part of the Milton community with two of my own children who also attend Fife Schools.  It is my hope that your child has a wonderful experience in school this year and finds it to be engaging, motivating, and enjoyable. If we can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
