Another year gone...
I cannot believe that we are down to our last month of school.
This is a community that truly cares and supports each other. Thank you to everyone who continues to make FSE a wonderful place to be.
With a new school year, comes inevitable changes to the staff and this year is definitely going to be a year of change. We welcome Miss Barstch to FSE, she will be teaching grade 4 in the mornings. As well we welcome Janine DenBraber and Allison McKay who are joining our LINKS program.
There are also some staff leaving us, we say goodbye Mrs. Austin, Mrs. S. Gaudet, Mrs. Elmore, Mrs. O’Hara, Mrs. Beecroft, Mrs. Bobcock, Ms. Hess, Mrs. House, Miss Kulczycki, Mrs. McKee, Mrs. Striegler and Mr. Schell and we wish them all the best in their next new and exciting adventures.
We also have several retirements this year including, Ms. Servold, Mrs. Cockburn, Mrs. Kelly and Mrs. Flaman. We look forward to hearing how you fill your days.
Mr. Nyznyk along with approximately 155 of our students will be heading off Southpointe school. We wish all of our Fort Elementary students and staff all the best in their new school meeting new friends.
June will see staff and students getting ready for a much deserved summer break. FSE’s school office will reopen beginning on August 25 from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.
We wish our FSE families all the best with the warmth of the summer sun and joy of long, lazy days! See you on August 30!
Thank You!! Giant Tiger
A big shout out to Giant Tiger who has decided to pick Fort Saskatchewan Elementary School for their charitable origination. For every Tiger that they sell $2.20 will come back to the school.

We really appreciate their kindness and giving back to the community and we will be using the donations next year to enhance student programming.
