Upcoming Consultations on Fort Saskatchewan School Boundaries
Please join us for the next boundary review consultation:
Wednesday, November 25
Rudolph Hennig Junior High, gymnasium
9512 92 Street
Free child care available
Families are welcome to come any time during the evening. A short presentation will take place at approximately 6 p.m. Representatives from Stantec Consulting Ltd. will review the data that has been collected and share an overview of what the data is telling us about how and where Fort Saskatchewan is evolving and growing. Attendees will have the opportunity to review the proposed options on new school boundaries for Fort Saskatchewan.
These options have been developed to determine a boundary area for the new K-9 school in Fort Saskatchewan by realigning our existing school boundaries.

We want to hear what you think about these options. Opportunities will be available to review the information, ask questions, and provide your feedback. The feedback collected will be used to review and refine the options. One final round of community consultation will take place before the recommended boundaries go to the Board of Trustees for approval in early 2016.
We encourage you to be part of these discussions and provide your feedback. Also, please take this opportunity to provide feedback through our survey.

EIPS Parent Survey: We want to hear from you
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) supports parent engagement at the Division and school levels. Gathering feedback from parents about the overall performance of EIPS and its 42 schools is an important component of that engagement. While parents of students in grades 4, 7, and 10 currently participate in the provincial Accountability Pillar Survey, EIPS is launching a Parent Survey designed to offer all parents an opportunity to provide their feedback about the Division and their school.
Win Ferguson Elementary encourages all of our families to take a few minutes to complete the brief online survey. It will take approximately three minutes and will help to supplement the Division’s Accountability Pillar Survey data. The survey is open until Nov. 24, 2015.
Complete the 2015 Parent Survey now.
Thank you for your participation.
SCHOOL FEES In ARREARS
Parents with school fees that are not in good standing by October 30, 2015, are once again advised that their child will not be allowed to participate in co-curricular or extra-curricular activities or fieldtrips.
This includes, but is not limited to: any fieldtrip that has associated costs, relay teams, Chess Club, choirs, hand bells, rockets, EPA etc. Good standing refers to fees that are paid in full, or arrangements have been made with the Principal and are not in arrears. Parents are reminded that fees can be paid online.
SLAs - Student Learning Assessments
Our grade 3 classes piloted Alberta Education's Student Learning Assessments (SLAs) in September & October. Grade three Student Learner Assessment (SLA) results have now been released. Teachers will review each student's SLA results and use the results, along with other assessment data collected throughout the school year, to inform instruction and planning. Please contact your child's teacher if you would like a summary of your child's SLA results.

The Leader in Me
7 HABITS IN THE SCHOOL THAT SHINES!
For the first two months of school, we’ll review all the 7 habits and then throughout the rest of the year, we’ll focus on one habit per month. At the beginning of the year, time is spent refreshing the 7 habits language and then throughout the rest of the year we will learn how to live and model the 7 habits in everything we do!
