Welcome to the FNSS Homepage
Welcome back to another school year! It is a great privilege to be able to welcomeback our returning students and families; and on behalf of all of the staff, I extend awarm welcome to our grade 8 class and all other new students and their families. Weare excited to have you joining our Husky community!
The beginning of the school year always brings anticipation, excitement, and hope.There is a lot of emotion in September: seeing good friends and starting to make newones, starting new classes, the chance to improve, and the opportunity to try newthings. Help your child to keep that positive energy going through the year:encourage them to work hard at their studies; to get involved through studentcouncil, clubs, teams and intramural sports, and volunteering; to work at buildingpositive relationships in their school community. All of these will help make the yearsuccessful and meaningful for your child.
At the same time, with school can come some anxiety; many students will experiencea variety of challenges throughout the year. There are many supports in place atFNSS to help your child. Our counselor, career coordinator, teachers and supportstaff are always willing to listen and help provide guidance. Mr. Abraham, our newvice-principal, and I have our doors open to listen to student concerns and challenges.If your child is experiencing academic challenges, many teachers offer help beforeschool, at lunch, or after school; as well, we are again offering the Lunch Studyprogram in the Aboriginal Education room. We want to make sure your child issupported in their learning: let us know if you have concerns!
I encourage you as parents to become involved in our school. Our first PAC meetingis coming up this week, and all parents are invited to attend. As a PAC member, youhave the opportunity to share your ideas and feedback, and through projects andevents can help to build up the Husky community. Come on out to coach or justcheer on our teams; get involved with band fundraising and trips or just come out tothe concerts to enjoy a musical treat. The more you participate in the school, thestronger our school community will be.
I wish you a great school year – go Huskies!
