FMPSD Hosting Open Houses for Families with Young Children

The Fort McMurray Public School District is giving families with kids, ready to start going to school, a chance to learn more about where they will be sending their children.

Open Houses will be at all 12 elementary schools in the community, for a chance to learn more about their Early Childhood Development and Kindergarten Programs.

“Parents are able to make connections with the school and the staff and get an opportunity to get answers to any questions they may have,” said Rhonda Blanchette, Coordinator of Early Inclusive Education. “They can see the environment their child will be in and experience a little about that.”

The ECDP program is for kids in pre-school helping them gain language skills and have a fun time with different activities. To attend the early childhood program, your child must be 3 and a half years old, while kids must be a year older to attend kindergarten.

Assistant Superintendent Shannon Noble tells Mix News they hope parents will have their kids registered as soon as possible to ensure they have a spot in the next school year.

“Once you have registered, it would make it easy for the teachers and staff at the schools to send you reminders and let you know details. You can also register the day of.”

For anyone interested in sending their kids to the newest school, Dave McNeily Public, can head to Walter and Gladys Hill Public to learn more about the facility. The school is scheduled to open this fall.

The schools will start the Open Houses on March 9 from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. and finish on March 10 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
