First Day Organization

Tuesday, September 2 is the first day of classes for students in Grades 1 to 6. On that morning as of 8:15, weather permitting, class lists indicating your child’s placement will be posted on the wall at the back of the school. Junior classes will meet near the portables while primary classes will meet near the soccer field. Teachers will be organized with a sign indicating their class. Parents are welcome to help their child find their teacher.

Should the weather be inclement, we will post the class lists outside the library for Junior classes while junior teachers will meet students inside the library. Primary class lists will be posted outside the gymnasium while primary teachers will welcome their classes inside the gym.

Have a wonderful Labour Day weekend and see everyone Tuesday morning!

School Bus Safety Awareness Day

On Sunday, August 24 from 9 am to 1 pm, the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA) will be hosting a school bus safety day. Children will learn about how to safely ride the school bus while watching a safety video featuring Winnie the Pooh as well as take a short ride on an actual school bus! This is a great opportunity for children entering the school system for the first time in the fall, or new residents to the area to learn about the school bus. Participants will receive bus safety certificates, colouring books and refreshments along with other information.

The event is being held at six sites in the Ottawa area, including two French sites. Register by calling the site you wish to attend.

School-wide Playday

Today is our school-wide playday! Our students today are engaging in a variety of individual and team-based activities – cooperative and competitive! All of these games are in support of the Longest Day of Play, a district fundraiser in support of the Education Foundation.

For 24 consecutive days beginning on May 28, and ending on the “Longest Day of Play”, June 20, FMPS students walked, ran, jumped, and moved for 60 minutes each day. At the end of the 24 days, the students completed a cumulative 24 hours of exercise. This achievement will be celebrated across the District with a symbolic “Longest Day of Play”.
