Principal's Message

Dear Fireside School Community,

On behalf of the staff at Fireside School I want to welcome you to the 2020/21 school year.  This year will certainly be different from any other in recent memory, but I want to ensure you that we have the safety of your children as our first priority.   While some things will look different our core philosophy of Open Minds, Open Hearts, Open Doors will remain.

As Fireside School enters its fourth year it has grown from a small school of 300 to nearly 700 learners this year.  We continue to reflect and adapt as we find our "voice" and transition into a large school.  Schools often represent a pillar of the community and Fireside will strive to be a positive and productive member of this growing neighborhood. While things may look different this year we will still be providing a diverse set of opportunities to actively engage our stakeholders in the school.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have a question, concern or want to know how you can be a part of Fireside School.

On a personal note I want to thank everyone for making my transition to Fireside School so pleasant.  Even in a year with so much uncertainty, due to COVID, the welcoming messages have been greatly appreciated. I am very much looking forward to getting to know all of you and helping to build on all the work that has been done by the community, staff and most importantly the students.

Thank you,


Dave Banderk

Principal Fireside School
