A Learning community dedicated to educating all students for personal excellence

Greely Road Public School PEAK Baseball Information Session on June 10

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.

Greely Road Public School PEAK Baseball Information Session on June 10

The Fort McMurray Public School District (FMPSD) Board of Trustees and Senior Administration would like to gauge interest for the possibility of a PEAK Baseball program at Greely Road Public School starting in September 2019. You are invited to an information session on Monday, June 10, 7 p.m., at the school.

PEAK (Passion, Excellence, Attitude, Knowledge) is our FMPSD sports academy, and a successful program growing annually. Greely Road students are looking forward to playing baseball. Chris King, Greely Road Science teacher is looking forward to coaching student athletes.

“Late last month, Greely Road attended the Board of Trustees meeting where students presented on sports at the school. They collectively expressed a strong desire to have a baseball program, and with my coaching background I thought it would be a great fit,” explained King, who is Canadian Baseball certified to teach and coach at all levels.

PEAK Coordinator, Scott Barr says the program would help students in multiple ways.

“Through PEAK baseball students will be given the opportunity to practice their baseball skills under a high level instructor, while connecting that training and passion to academics. We look forward to sharing the PEAK programming with the parents in the Greely Road school area or other parts of the community so they can see how it can support their children's learning.”

James Sedgwick, Principal, Greely Road Public School is looking forward to the information session.

“The primary goal of the info session is to determine the level of interest for a PEAK Baseball Academy for grade 4,5,6 students. We hope to see many parents in attendance, and to launch the program this fall. We look forward to your participation,” Sedgwick notes.

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.
