Welcome to Our School!
Welcome new friends from Fort McMurray! We are glad that you are here and that you are safe.
We hope that you enjoy our website and visit us often. Check out our school newsletter and our school calendar to keep on top of all of the events that are happening at Fort Saskatchewan Elementary School. We are currently accepting registration for the 2016-17 school year. You can come in and register in the office or download the registration form on line. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call us!
"Hugs of Hope" for Fort McMurray
For the next few weeks Fort Elementary will be collecting donations for those families, from Fort McMurray, who are finding housing in Fort Saskatchewan. If you (staff, students or families) make a donation at our school then your name gets included on a special bulletin board display in the main foyer. Our hearts, prayers and hugs go out to all those affected by the fire. We hope that you are well.
In addition, the Legion is collecting clothing and Roland's Jewelry is collecting non-perishable foods and gift cards. FYI is also collecting clothing and food. Starting Thursday, Shoppers Drug Mart will let you donate your Optimum Points. These donations are meant for all of the families who have already arrived in Fort Saskatchewan and more who are coming. If you would like to purchase gift cards in the school office, for food, we certainly welcome you to do so.
School Council and Other Updates
Our next, and final, Parent Council meeting for this school year is on Tuesday, May 24, 6:30 in the library.
For more information go to the Parent Council page.
School Supplies from Write-On-Stationery can be ordered on-line up to the middle of August.
Go to the Write-On website www.write-on.ca and order online, click on "PARENTS - Order Here", School Name - Fort Saskatchewan Elementary School, choose your grade and place your order. They now accept Visa, MC, AMEX, Visa Debit and Interac On-line.

Stawnichy's Sausage Fundraiser
Back by popular demand . . . the Stawnichy’s Sausage Fundraiser. Everyone loves Mundare Sausage, and now is a great time to stock up for summer barbecue season.
We are trying something new . . . online ordering and payment. Go to www.fse.parentcouncil.net to register. Click here for the instructions, and the code you will need is FSE. Once there you can view the online order form and place and pay for your order online via PayPal. You can also enter your order, print a remittance form, and send it with a cheque to the school, payable to FSESPS.
A paper order form was sent home. Please be sure to put your name, your child’s name and room number and a phone number on the order forms.
You may submit your order by paper, but we really encourage everyone to try out the online system. We plan to use this website for hot lunch ordering in the fall, so let’s get familiar with it now.
If you would like to collect orders with a grid order form like we have used in the past, there is one posted on the Parent Council site under “Documents”, and there is also one posted on the school website. The school office will also have a few hard copies. Please enter your orders online once you have collected them all.
This campaign will run from May 2 – 12, 2016. There will be no late orders accepted. We expect to have the products ready for pick up at the school on the afternoon of Friday, May 27th.
We appreciate the support of our school families and community and remind you that participation in fundraisers is always voluntary. You can contact us via the school office with any feedback or concerns.
