Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the 2021/22 school year!!

We are very excited to have you and your children as part of this amazing community that we call Fireside.  It is our belief that a close relationship between the school and home is a key component in enabling our young learners to reach their full potential.  Throughout this school year, we will work together to challenge our students to grow in many ways, including academically, emotionally, and physically.

Fireside school continues to grow with over 800 students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 for this school year. This growth brings both opportunities and challenges and we are excited to continue to evolve as we welcome new students/families.  The COVID pandemic has and continues to present challenges to school operations. While we have not been able to invite our community into the building for well over a year, we are excited when the opportunity does arise to welcome you back.

For the 2021/22 school year we will be focusing our school improvement on four key areas: Inclusion, Student Engagement, Instructional Design and Making Learning Visible. A few examples of initiatives we are currently working on are changes to how we support student literacy, refining how we report student success and growth, purposeful connection with our community and how we support students with academic and social-emotional challenges.  The improvements have already shown positve results, and we are excited to continue this journey in the months and years ahead.

Please do not hesitate to contact us whenever you have a question, concern, or want an update on your child.  We believe that the better the communication between home and school the more effective we can all be.

We look forward to a successful and exciting school year.
