Parents

"A parent is not a person to lean on but a person to make leaning unnecessary" - Dorothy C. Fisher

Parents/Guardians are a vital part of every child’s education. This education starts long before children come to school in the simple forms of talking with your children, reading, playing games, and spending time with them. 

At FMCS we partner with the parents/guardians of the children to continue this education into the school system. Through this partnership we create programs and activities that are designed to give students success throughout their academic years.  We focus on literacy and numeracy and encourage our parents to work together with their children and us to ensure each student has success in these areas. 

Fort Vermilion School Division encourages parents/guardians to stay informed and support their children throughout their school career. 

We have created a guide to help you communicate effectively with your child's teacher at Parent/Teacher Interviews with tips that can be applied throughout the school year.

A few ways to get involved are:

  • read with your child often, ideally every day
  • stay informed by reading newsletters, agendas and notes from the teacher or school
  • participate in parent/teacher interviews
  • attend school events and special activities
  • talk to your child and show an interest in their school day, friends and favorite activities

We thank you for your support, effort and time in developing your children into lifelong learners.
