    Dear Mechanicville Elementary students and families,

    I am delighted and honored to be here at Mechanicville Elementary School, where we believe in working together to bring out the best in every child.

    My experience in Mechanicville spans over 20 years of experience as an administrator. I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of local schools, including Shenendehowa, Waterford and Saratoga Springs, which has provided me with a solid background and many educational experiences. Our staff here at MES, is second to none that I have ever worked with. 

    When schools and families work together, children do better in school and enjoy school more. According to research, regardless of family income or background, students with involved parents are more likely to: earn better grades, perform better on tests, have better attendance and demonstrate better social skills and behavior.

    This year we are particularly excited about our school being recognized by the state for our recent excellent test scores on the New York State tests in grades 3-8.

    The staff and I are excited for another successful year. We invite you to be part of your child’s academic and overall success at the Mechanicville Elementary School.


    Stephen Marra
    Elementary School Principal
