Welcome to Our School!
Welcome to Fort Saskatchewan Elementary School. We hope that you enjoy our website and visit us often.
Ms. Jessica Smith will be stepping in, temporarily, for Mrs. Sorochan.
Mrs. Sorochan will be moving to EIPS Central Office to assist in the HR department during their busiest time of year-hiring season. She is looking forward to this new and challenging opportunity but will still be keeping close tabs on FSE. She will be returning to Fort Elementary at the end of June.
Our school newsletter is posted the first week of each month. It contains information on all the events, activities and links that are important for parents. Please read it by clicking on the link on the left side of the home page.
We are still accepting registrations for the 2017-18 school year.
Imagine a Canada
"Imagine a Canada" is a national art and essay competition that asks young people to share their thoughts on what the future of Canada will look like through the lens of reconciliation, specifically following the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.
Student could submit works of art, poetry, film, video, or traditional essays in this competition. The top submissions would be selected by a special group of reviewers and will be prominently featured by the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR).
Under the guidance of Miss Seneca Crowe, we are thrilled to let you know that we had two grade six students place in the top 10, for Alberta. Congratulations to Emma N. and Purnoor G. They will be recognized at a Ceremony being held at Government House, later in April.
We also had 13 Honorable Mentions: Addyson P., Eva C., Ethan M., Carson N., Arianna P., Sofia A., Madison P., Jeramie R., Megan B., Sabreena B., Emeree V., Kristy S., Shelby C., and Lilly F. Their projects will be displayed at the Edmonton Public Library, later in the spring.
We are so proud of our students and of Miss Crowe.
FSE Parent Survey Results
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is committed to ensuring all parents and guardians of students within the Division have a chance to share their thoughts on the overall performance of their school and the Division. One of the ways EIPS ensures its parent’s voices are heard is by conducting an annual parent survey.
In January, the Division invited EIPS families to participate in the 2016–2017 Parent Survey. The survey included 15 questions regarding topics such as the quality of teaching, school leadership, parent engagement and more. The overall response rate was 16 per cent, which included close to 2,700 responses from parents and guardians across the Division.
The feedback gathered will help the Division measure its progress towards meeting the goals and priorities outlined in the EIPS 2015–2018 Three-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve its students and the wider community.
Thank you to all the parents who took the time to fill out the Parent Survey. We appreciate your efforts in providing feedback that will guide us in becoming an even better school!
