No School FCS Students Feb 8 and 9
Posted on February 7th, 2018
Just a reminder there will be no school for students on February 8 and 9. Teachers will be attending their annual Teachers' Convention in Edmonton for two days. Teachers' conventions have been held since the late 1800s - before Alberta was a province. Over the years, conventions gradually became conference-style events aimed at providing workshops on curriculum and pedagogy. Conventions continue to provide two days for the province's teachers to gather together to hear about new education research, consider innovative pedagogical practices and discuss issues of professional concern. For teachers of Fox Creek who may be the only science, grade 6, or math teacher, conventions are an oportuntiy to liase with others who teach the same grades or specialize in the same subjects. So thank you parents for keeping your students at home for the next two days while teachers go and engage in two days of professional development which some may try out next Monday.
