A Message From Your Principal

  • J. Richard Crozier Dear Smallwood Community,

    Welcome to Smallwood Drive Elementary School, an award winning school for academics, character and social and emotional development.

    Smallwood Drive Elementary is a neighborhood school located in Snyder, NY. Our school is an extension of our community where everyone is welcomed and included.

    Our mission at Smallwood is simple. We thrive to give the children of our school the best elementary experience possible by building upon a strong foundation of educational excellence and fostering a love of learning in all children.

    Our talented faculty consistently goes above and beyond for our students. Smiles and laughter fill the halls of our school. Our staff consider each other members of an extended family. We not only take care of children, but we take care of one another.

    We take pride in our relationship with parents. Parents play a big role in all that we do and we are proud of the strong partnership we have with our Smallwood Parent Teacher Association. Together, as teammates, we work hard to provide children with memorable experiences and events.

    We believe Smallwood is unique. Unique in a good way. We encourage you to ask our neighbors about our school. Give us a call and we would love to share with you all of the amazing things that are going on at Smallwood.

    Without a doubt, you will learn very quickly that....Smallwood School is great!

    On behalf of the entire school community, welcome to Smallwood!
