Welcome to Farnham!

We welcome all members of our community to participate in the important job of education  

We love our volunteers and have a spot for you, because we believe that Partnership = Success.
The staff at Farnham Elementary School believes that children learn best in a variety of ways. We believe in a cooperative educational community that supports the importance of education. Students, staff, parents, and community leaders share the responsibility to educate our students. We strive to encourage our students to be literate, reflective, citizens who uphold strong educational and social standards. School Parent Partnership Brochure  

On Wednesday, March 29th, all of our science fair projects will be displayed in the Farnham cafeteria and Farnham 5th graders will be presenting their projects to panels of judges.  The student Science Fair Handbook is available here.
That evening please join us from 6:30 to 8:00.  You and your child will have an opportunity to not only view all of our students' Science Fair Projects, but to also engage in a series of hands on science activities!  The theme will be Gadgets in Motion.  This event will be hosted in conjunction with Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose.
