The supply list is general;there may be some additional requirements, depending on the section and teacher but the attached list covers most supplies that will be needed.
Because students do make timetable changes, particularly in the first days of the semester, is may be wise to wait on purchases if any changes are anticipated.

School Fees DUE
FMHS needs your help! Student statements were mailed home for outstanding fees. These fees will assist us in closing our 2017-2018 school year, giving us a great start when we return this fall. Thank you to our students/parents who have submitted their fees. Call the office if you have any questions.
2018/2019 Student Timetables
Student timetables for next year were distributed in Advisory today. These need to be signed by a parent or guadian and returned to the school by Monday, June 18th to the student's Advisory teacher.
Students wanting to request changes can complete a Course Change Request Form and submit it to their Advisory teacher by Monday, June 18th. Please consult the Master Timetable before completing a Course Change Form. Please fill in all of the information in the Course Change Form as it helps to prioritize requests.
Some courses will have fees attached to them. Please view the Fee Schedule to be aware of additional fees.
Requests will be processed on a priority needs basis, meaning that changes needed for a student to meet diploma or postsecondary requirements will be processed first. Preferences will be considered if there is space in a section and the sections are reasonably balanced between semesters or courses.
Grade 9 students going into grade 10 were informed today that PE 10 classes were reconfigured to support the 5-credit PE. There is a CALM/PE section that students can request but there are other ways for students to get CALM. They can take it in grade 11 opposite an option, take it as a summer course or as a self-directed course. The outcomes in CALM are more relevant to students in grade 11 and 12 so we encourage students to take it then, if possible. Taking CALM in grade 11 also allows students to start options at the 10-level in grade 10 that they may continue to the 20 and 30 level. On the other hand, students planning to do all three Sciences and Math 30-1 and Math 31 in grade 12 would benefit from taking CALM in grade 10.
As well for next year's grade 10 students, we had labeled the PE classes as "Competitive", "Recreational" and "Co-Ed" but due to confusion, we have gone back to the traditional labels of "Girls", "Boys" and "Co-Ed".
Students and parents can make an appointment with Mrs. Bartling, Mr. Kniel or Mrs. Cloke if they have questions: 780-542-4401.
We are excited about having students back next year and are happy to work with parents and students to find the best fit with the resources we have available.

Course Selections for 2018/2019
On Monday April 9th, grade 9, 10, 11 and returning grade 12 students will learn how to select their courses for next year in their Advisory class.
Students have until April 20th to make their selections in Powerschool, submit, print and hand in a copy signed by a parent or guardian to their Advisory teacher. If a selection sheet is handed in and changes need to be made, it can be done in Powerschool, reprinted, signed and handed back in up until the 20th. After April 20th, changes to selections can no longer be made in Powerschool and will need to be made at the office.
Students can also submit a Course Switch-Out Form along with their signed course selection sheet. This form lists courses currently not available but could potentially be offered if there is enough student interest. Course Switch Out Form
Once all of the course selections are handed in, we being the process of designing the timetable based on student requests, teacher recommendations, resource availability and teacher availablility.
Our goal is to hand out student timetables in early June so students can request changes if needed, before the end of the school year.
