2015-2016 Yearly Calendar
Tansi, Edlanet’e, Welcome!
We currently have 88 students in ECS to Grade 7 and 17 staff members.
We have been working on four goals at the Fort McKay School: to improve attendance to 95%, to improve literacy, to improve parental/community involvement, and to improve Cree and Dene languages. We are very proud of all our accomplishments and successes.
Our attendance is improving and we have more perfect attenders this year that last year. Students are improving in their literacy levels and we have a Parental Council group that meets once a month. Currently we have a Cree Instructor and the Dene teacher will be starting in January, so students will be learning both languages.
We are very fortunate that the Fort McKay Band funds four teacher assistant positions, so we are able to have a teacher assistant in each classroom.
We have a wonderful group of students and staff and we are all working together for a better tomorrow!
“Today’s readers are tomorrow’s leaders!”
