Christina Gordon Public School will be opening its doors in August.
As of right now, Fort McMurray’s new school will be home to 260 students.
Parents, guardians, and students can get their first sights of the new building on August 14, with additional registration starting at 9 a.m. The school has an Early Childhood Development Program and teaches all the way up to grade six.
“Anyone entering the school will feel welcome and will sense right away that it is a place where people are happy to be, and where children are having fun,” said Principal Rick Thorne, in a release. “The school is bright and open with lots of common space for people to get together and learn.”
Originally, the school was set to open in September 2016 but due to damage from the wildfire, it was pushed back by a year. Last year, they operated out of the Timberlea Public School, teaching 155 students.
Students will also get exciting opportunities from participating in one of their 20 clubs to learning in Google Classrooms.
“Cutting edge technology is evident and all students have access to iPADS and Chromebooks. The youngest students are exposed to the most updated technology through coding and Robotics even in our Junior Tech club, along with our Tech and Trades Academy for grades 4-6,” added Thorne.
These classes will give teachers the opportunity to create, distribute, and grade assignments digitally.
