We wanted to provide an opportunity for parents to meet their child’s teacher. This will allow parents to put a face to the names and allow us to answer any questions you may have about high school life and expectations.

Please join us on Friday, September 21st from 1:30 - 3:30 to meet your child’s teachers, see where they spend their day and view some of his/her initial work.

Parent Letter

August 27, 2018

Dear Students, Parents/Guardians and Families,

This communication is in continuation of our earlier letter on Tuesday August 21st regarding Mr. Bruce Parkin's sudden passing on August 18th due to natural causes. Students returned today to the classes and their second block teacher spoke to them about the facts of the Mr. Parkin's death, they were encouraged to share their questions, concerns and message to the family through a guided discussion. We had CIRT members at hand to support our students and staff the whole day.

We encourage parents to support their students in accordance with their own family values and beliefs. If a parent feels that the school needs to be aware of any concern related to your child, feel very welcome to contact us. Whatever you share will be helpful as the staff work together to support students in this time of grief.

Mr. Parkin's memorial service is scheduled for Sunday September 2nd at 3:00 p.m. at RockPointe Church - Bearspaw (255024 Lochend Rd, Calgary, AB). The details can be found at this link:

Mr. Parkin was a long serving member of the FFCA High School and a much respected, admired and loved colleague, friend, and an educator. His advocacy and leadership helped our physical education, leadership and athletics programs continue to grow and excel. Our hearts are burdened with the grief of loss and concern for his family. Our sincere condolences go to his family at this very sad time.

Sincerely from the leadership team,

Bharati Singh, Principal
