Quotes from Parent Advocates

"This year has been a year of change, nervous excitement, and an opportunity to be a part of creating a strong foundation for the next seven years and beyond. Some of my daughter's highlights are being an MC for the Grand Opening, voting on the name of the school Mascot and school spirit and collaboration at Spray Lakes. As parents, we like the community engagement, open communication and friendly and supportive staff."

AF, grade one parent

"My daughter loves going to school. Every evening we talk about what we are grateful for, and she often says how much she loves her school and her teacher. Her love for learning is cherished, and staff go above and beyond to ensure students have creative input into their new environment, are cared for, and that their opinions are valued. Fireside school fosters a sense of community in learning, building positive relationships with parents, partnerships with the community, and beyond."

AF, Kindergarten parent

Student: "I am excited and honoured to be a Fireside school reporter because I get to interview and meet many people at school, and I love writing.

Parent: "The inauguration ceremony was amazing. I felt uplifted and so happy for my daughter to be able to attend a school where the children have a voice, and that voice is strong. It was heard during the ceremony with the beautiful Fireside School song and lyrics. I don't think there was a dry eye in the audience."

SB, grade 4 parent

"I am very impressed with the way that Fireside School is building a sense of belonging, community and safety. The staff has been consistently positive and supportive of my child and our family. As a parent, I feel warmly welcomed and encouraged to participate in the school community. Fireside's motto of "Open Minds, Open Hearts, Open Doors" is exemplified in the school's communication, practices and philosophy."

LM, grade 6 parent
