It is with great excitement that we welcome you back to the start of the 2022-2023 school year at Fairbank Public School. A warm welcome is extended to those children, parents, and staff who are new to Fairbank. I am very pleased to be your school Principal. I have been busy these past few weeks hiring new staff, meeting with staff, getting our school building ready and completing many tasks. It is wonderful to see happy children in their new classrooms. I have visited all of the classrooms and really enjoy the positive energy our children and staff have.
Communication with parents is important to me. My door is open to listen to your comments, questions, and suggestions. Our teachers are eager to work with you. If you have a particular question or concern directly related to the program or the classroom, please approach your child’s teacher first. The teachers have been busy organizing and decorating their classrooms as well as preparing lessons to make the first day of school a magical one for everyone. Our goal is to create and maintain a safe, welcoming, and caring environment where high expectations are clearly and consistently communicated and where the focus is on student achievement and success. Please ensure that your child is on time each day. Our first bell for entry is at 8:45 a.m. School supervision on the playground starts at 8:35 a.m.
Parental involvement makes a significant difference in the quality of education that children receive. Thank you for your continued support and partnership as we learn and thrive together. Just a reminder to parents, please begin your visit at the main office should you need to come into the school. You must always enter the school from the front doors (Dufferin Street entrance). Kindly do not come in the school from the back doors as we want to be as safe as possible!
We wish each of you an enjoyable, involved, and successful school year.
