Welcome back to FA 2021!

On behalf of the entire FA Parent Community (FAPC) Executive, we would like to welcome families back to the school! We will have to remain agile in how we gather and adapt to new and changing COVID-19 protocols, but I personally am confident the school administration, teachers and parents/guardians will keep finding creative approaches to remain socially connected.

The FAPC provides a place for parents/guardians to connect and be involved with the growth and success of our children at Fraser and beyond.

A primary goal of the FAPC is to build a community where parents not only know their child’s grade parents, but have connections with parents across multiple grades.

We are a diverse but strong community who all have one thing in common – a child with language-based learning differences. By coming together, we can make their world brighter and help them achieve their full potential, not stifled by norms, stereotypes or limitations.

The FAPC has a number of initiatives that we carry out each year and we are working on hybrid models to accommodate the re-opening guidelines. First and foremost is to keep a strong line of communication going amongst parents who wish to participate. Our goal is to have 100% participation in one way or another.

We do that through a number of ways:
1. Our FAPC website – that can be accessed on MySchool;
2. Our class parent representatives;
3. A private moderated Facebook group;
4. Grade level WhatsApp group chats;
5. FAPC meetings – with alternating in-person and Zoom formats.

We also have a number of activities throughout the year such as used uniform sales, back to school parent socials (format currently under review), holiday baking and staff appreciation events to name a few. We will keep you posted as we transition our activities to meet the current protocols. For any parent who would like to volunteer, please let us know via our Facebook group or email at fapc@fraseracademy.ca.
