New Bell Schedule
Important notice to all FMHS students and parents: the FMHS bell schedule will change on Monday so the school day begins at 8:40 (five minutes later) and ends at 3:20 (5 minutes later).
The good news is many students will get an extra 5 minutes of sleep...
The current 3:15 dismissal time does not coordinate with the bus hub transfer times and there was too much time between school dismissal and bus transfer. As such, the attached bell schedule will take effect on Monday, September 16, 2019. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Course Change Requests
Prior to changes being made to your schedule for 2019/2020 we require this form to be filled out and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Changes will be made based primarily on Diploma Requirements, followed by Post Secondary Requirements and then preferred courses.
DEADLINE for Term 1 course change requests--Monday, September 16th

Overview of New Bell Schedule, PLT (Personalized Learning Time) and Advisory
The Bell Schedule will be changing this year--instead of a separate 40 minutes block for Tutuorial, that flexible time is now built in to each classroom block. Please see a full explanation and description in the What's New This Year link. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing everyone for the start of school next week!
FMHS Student Supply List
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.

Grade 9 Option Survey
It's that time of year again...time to request courses for next year!
All students will go to their Advisory class in Monday's Tutorial to learn how to select their course requests for next year in PowerSchool.
They will print two copies of their course requests--one for their Advisory teacher and one to take home to be signed by a parent or guardian. The deadline to have these signed course requests returned is next Tuesday, April 16th.
There are tools to help students plan their high school courses on our website, fmhigh.wrsd.ca under the Registration tab.
As well, there are Information Sessions this week for students and parents--Wednesday at 6 PM in the Max is for grade 8 students coming into grade 9 next year. Thursday at 6 PM in the Max is for grade 9s coming into grade 10 and needing help to select their courses for high school and beyond.
Grade 9 students will enter the courses their teachers have recommended for them. This allows us to build the timetable based on what students need. Once the timetable is built, we will hand out individual timetables in mid-June. Students can request changes at that time.
Students in any grade, as well as parents, can set up an appointment with admin (Mrs. Bartling, Mr. Kniel or Mrs.Cloke) for support in course requests.
Please contact the school at 780-542-4401 if you have any questions. We look forward to building a timetable that helps all students get the courses they need for their diploma and future requirements!

Grade 12 students and parents,
On Tuesday, admin along with Commencement and Evening program organizers met with grade 12 students to address concerns brought forward in a petition.
The main concern brought forward was the May 24th Commencement date. We are aware that there is a preference for grad at the end of June, however careful consideration was given to the date selection and due to the last week of June being a pivotal time needed to best serve the needs of all FMHS students, both in the current and coming year, Commencement will remain on May 24, 2019.
Parents and students have input into the date and format of the Evening Program, and based on feedback from Evening Program Parent Meeting and follow-up Grade 12 student meetings in October, the two-day format with the Evening Program following Commencement was decided and will be on May 25, 2019.
There will be opportunity for input in the planning of the Evening Program starting in February. The next grade 12 student meeting to begin choosing an executive and brainstorming ideas for themes, colors, etc will be February 4, 2019. Grad Photos will be that week also; instructions on how to sign up for a grad photo sitting will be sent out in January.
During the meeting with students this week, students were invited to email or make an appointment to meet if they have concerns or questions or to ensure they have accurate information. We invite parents to do the same; my email is firstname.lastname@example.org or you can contact 780-542-4401 to make an appointment.
Graduation is an important event to students, parents, the school and community. While challenging to choose a format and date that will work for everyone, FMHS strives to best serve our diverse learning community.
