Upcoming Events

Hello Falkland Families!

Our Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) for Grades 4 & 7 Students will begin next week. Please CLICK HERE for more information. Letter was sent home by Mrs. Cull to all parents of grade 4 & 7 students, also one from the superintendent.

Please call or email the office if you child is going to be absent. Please indicate how long they will be away and if the reason is for illness or parent/guardian excused. Students should be staying home if they are too sick to participate in thier regular activities, including gym, recess and lunch.

Visitors to the school must check in at the office. 

Please do not enter the school yard through the parking lot. There are three openings along the fence line which are much safer to enter.

We have yearbooks for sale from the 2021-2022 school year as well as the 2020-2021 school year. The cost of each yearbook is $22. Please contact the office if you would like to purchase one.

If you are interested in helping volunteer at the school, a reminder that all volunteers MUST have a police information check completed and on file with the school district. This takes several weeks so we encourage you to contact the office for the online link to get started on the process right away.

If you have not yet signed into Parent Connect to complete the online permission forms, please do so as soon as possible. You can CLICK HERE to sign in.

FSA assessment

 This is the time of year when our students in grades 4 & 7 begin participating in the Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA). This annual provincial assessment, measures students’ academic skills and provides the district with a snapshot of students’ foundational skills in literacy and numeracy. All students in grades 4 & 7 are required by the Ministry of Education and Child Care to participate in the FSA. 

The results of the FSA serve as an important tool to support student learning in SD83 which will be particularly important as we continue to determine the impact of COVID-19 on student learning. The district also uses the assessment data to support the alignment of resources during our annual budget discussions. FSA data is not part of the formal student evaluation process and is not included in student report cards.

Welcome Back to School Event – Sept. 21

Thank you very much to all the parent helpers that made our welcome back to school event possible, especially our PAC. The event to kick off the 2022-2023 school year was very well attended by families. It was so great to welcome people back to school in person. Our students did a wonderful job touring their parents around their classroom, the school and demonstrating how to use our indoor and outdoor movement paths.
