Hello from Fort High!
It is hard to believe with the summer weather we’ve been having lately, but this week already marks a full month that school has been in.
Students seem to have gotten back into the routine very easily and the start of the school year went smoothly.
Athletic teams are back in action as football, girls’ basketball, boys’ volleyball, and golf are in full swing while both the boys’ and girls’ hockey teams recently had tryouts.
Both the fall play and musical revue have been holding auditions. As well, various clubs have had their initial meetings and a barbecue was held last week to welcome the Grade 9 students.
Most classes likely had their first major tests last week, if they have not done so already.
Life at Fort High definitely is back to normal.
Speaking of “life at Fort High,” if you would like to become involved in an advisory capacity, the first meeting of the Fort Frances High School Council will be held today (Sept. 27) from 7-9 p.m. in the school library.
I would like to take this opportunity to invite any parent who may be interested to join us.
The school council acts in an advisory capacity to the principal. It is a great way for parents to become involved in, and stay informed about, life at Fort High.
Meetings were held on Wednesdays in 2005-06, but the night of meetings is determined by each individual school council. Generally, the commitment involved is five-seven meetings per year and some committee work.
Working together and with your input, we can make Fort High a better school.
In closing, I would like to say how excited we are about this school year. There is a lot going on at Fort High each and every day—both inside and outside the classroom.
I trust you have taken the time to review the student handbook that was issued to all students at registration. I would recommend reading the entire book as it is full of useful information.
If you find reading the entire book a little more than you want to take on, there is a section entitled “What Parents Need to Know” on pages 17-20, which contains key information for parents.
As always, if you have questions, I would encourage you to call the school at 274-7747.
