A Message from the Principal - Mr. Michael Fording

Fording
Winter 2020
 
As we enter the next phase of the 2020-2021 School Year, I would like to begin by stating how pleased we are with the way students and teachers have adapted to remote learning and have made the extraordinary effort to keep school being school as much as possible, even though we find ourselves in such extraordinary times. The flexibility, creativity, and patience demonstrated by our very own teachers have greatly helped to get the most out of our wonderful students. 
 
To our students, please remember how important it is that you attend all of your classes on a daily basis, with your cameras on. Staff needs to see you in order to know that you are there and working hard! Also, you need to ask questions if you are unsure of something and you need to complete all of your work!
 
To our parents, your efforts in checking your child's progress are absolutely critical to their success. If you do not know how to check the grades please call our attendance office. Please keep encouraging your child and giving them any help that you can provide. Also, the administrators are in the building every day so if you need anything at all please reach out to us.
 
Finally, despite a new season in education, I remain excited about the effort our stakeholders are investing into this remote learning environment and confident of continued success. Every single person involved in the education of your children and our students is crucial to helping our students become the successful young ladies and gentlemen we all know they can be. Thank you to everyone involved in this process. We couldn't do this without you! Go Bulldogs!
