It is the most wonderful time of year! It’s almost back to school time! We at Fort McMurray Catholic Schools are very excited to welcome everyone back for the 2019/20 school year. We look forward to another great year of celebrating learning and achievement!
Fort McMurray Catholic Schools Superintendent George McGuigan says the start of a school year always brings a sense of renewal, “Back to school each year represents a new beginning. For students, it is full of optimism to have a great year, renew friendships, develop new ones. It is our responsibility to ensure that optimism maintains and ultimately, grows.”
Chair Galenzoski says it’s always a good time of year when it’s this time of year, “Back to school is always exciting for me to see the kids reunite with friends they haven’t seen all summer, and there’s always a bit of relief for me to get back to some structure. For our Board of Trustees, I’m very much looking forward to going through some critical strategic planning for the Board and district, and to continue to get to know and work together as a team. The stronger we are as a leadership team, we can do so much more for our students, families, and staff.
If you have a question about back to school this year, please contact your neighbourhood school or read our Back to School guide on our website and social media. The first day of school is September 3rd, 2019. Have a great 2019/20 school year!
