Possible French Kindergarten Program at Greely - Information Session May 21

Information for Registered Families

Welcome to E-cademy+

Please know that we are all working together to make sure that E-cademy+ is a quality online program for your children. E-cademy+ is NOT the same as at home learning which happened last March-June.  It is much more robust and includes all of the curriculum areas.  It requires parents to be dedicated to making sure students are online daily with their teacher and completing assignments.

Administrators are busy handling two schools (their brick and mortar school as well as E-cademy+).  If you filled out the FMPSD E-cademy+ Interest Form, we are working as fast as we can to get to you. Elementary, Junior High and Senior High all have different requirements, so you may hear from Elementary before you hear from Junior High or Senior High (who are busy staffing and pulling schedules together to meet student needs).

Click on the buttons below and you will find information that was emailed to you.  Sometimes these emails go to your SPAM box, so please check before phoning.

  

Technology that is required for E-cademy+ is not one specific brand or type.  As long as students have something with a working camera and a microphone such as a laptop, desktop, or Chromebook, then you are good to go!  Students should also have headphones to block out background noise.  

The deadline to register for E-cademy+ is September 10th at 4pm.  The process is to submit your expression of interest HERE, and then patiently wait for a phone call from Division Office followed by sharing of information on next steps.  Students can move back to brick and mortar schools after the first report card if they choose, but we are asking that they remain with E-cademy+ until then.

Possible French Kindergarten Program at Greely - Information Session May 21

The Board of Trustees and Senior Administration would like to gauge interest for the possibility of a French Kindergarten program at Greely Road Public School starting in September 2019. The idea would be to grow the program by one grade every year until grade six is completed.

You are invited to an information session on Tuesday, May 21 at 7 p.m., in the Greely Road School Library to discuss this exciting initiative.  Please “tell a friend” as we are looking to attract students from outside the Greely Road attendance area.

If you are interested in finding out more about this program, please contact James Sedgwick, Principal, at 780-791-7470, or james.sedgwick@fmpsd.ab.ca; or Shannon Noble, Assistant Superintendent at 780-799-7900, shannon.noble@fmpsd.ab.ca.

It is our hope to have many parents attend the May 21 meeting to talk about French programming on the south side of the river.  We look forward to your participation.
