DoDEA Operations in a "Government Shutdown"

In the event of a lapse in appropriations after September 30, 2023 leading to a “government shutdown”, DoDEA schools will remain open for normal operations, except for sports (including practices) and extracurricular activities which will pause during a shutdown.

Principal's Corner

I am delighted to extend a warm greeting to all students, parents, and members of the Fort Stewart community. As the proud principal, I am honored to lead a team of dedicated educators who are committed to providing a nurturing and stimulating learning environment for our students.

At Kessler Elementary School, we strive to foster a culture of excellence where every child feels valued, supported, and empowered to reach their fullest potential. Our dedicated staff is passionate about education and works tirelessly to ensure that each student receives a high-quality education that is tailored to their unique needs and abilities.

We believe that education is a partnership between the school, parents, and the community. We encourage open lines of communication and value your involvement in your child's education journey. Together, we can create a strong support system that nurtures and inspires our students to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens.

Our curriculum is designed to provide a well-rounded education that emphasizes academic achievement and character development. We offer a wide range of programs and activities to engage and challenge our students, from rigorous core subjects to enriching art, music, and physical education classes. We are dedicated to promoting critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving skills that are essential for success in the 21st century.

Kessler Elementary School also places a strong emphasis on creating a safe and inclusive environment for all students. We prioritize building positive relationships and fostering a sense of belonging among our diverse student body. We firmly believe that a respectful and compassionate school climate enables students to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

I encourage you to explore our website, where you will find valuable information about our school, our faculty, and the numerous resources available to our students and families. 

Once again, welcome to Kessler Elementary School! I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and look forward to working together to create a bright and successful future for all our students.


Warm regards,

Mrs. Chi Anne McGrew
