Welcome to the FNSS Homepage
Parents and students,
On behalf of all of our staff, I warmly welcome you back to another year of school at Fort Nelson Secondary School! For those of you that are new to our school or perhaps even new to Fort Nelson, welcome to our Husky community – we are excited to have you here, and hope that the next year will be a year of forming relationships, of growth, and a positive learning experience! As a staff, we look forward to journeying throughout the year with all of you and seeing your learning and your accomplishments.
To our students: our Husky community offers you many opportunities to learn, to grow, to explore your interests, to hone your skills, and to form meaningful relationships with others. Learning is your number one priority when you walk through our doors: take each moment of the day that presents itself to you as on opportunity to do your best, to build up yourself and others, to work hard, to not give up. If you do this, at the end of the year you will find that you are stronger and wiser, have contributed to our school, and can be proud of the effort you’ve put in. Make the most of your time here: school clubs, school events, yearbook, athletics, student council, Friends of Rachel – all offer opportunities to make memories, build lasting friendships, hone your skills and learn new ones, and build a stronger community!
To our parents: be involved in your student’s education! You still have a role to play in helping your child obtain their educational goals while they work towards responsible adulthood! Being aware of your child’s progress, helping with homework, staying in frequent contact with teachers, attending parent-teacher conferences, encouraging them each and every day to do their best, celebrating their successes, and helping them through their challenges will all help your child to have a positive and successful learning experience. Volunteering in the school, joining the Parent Advisory Council, and attending school events all help to build our community, and make FNSS a better school for your child and others.
If you have any questions about your child’s year or about FNSS, don’t hesitate to contact us!
