Fort McMurray Catholic School District is fortunate to have the support of community minded corporate sponsors from the Wood Buffalo Region (Fort McMurray and the surrounding area).
The First Nation, Métis, and Inuit (FNMI) Program in our schools is a funded educational initiative of Alberta Education. However, to ensure that our Program meets the full range of needs of our FNMI students and all students in our schools, additional funding support is required. This additional support comes from our community funders.
These funders supply the annual grants to our District which in turn secures the means for our breakfast and lunch programs, before and after school cultural and academic support programs, FNMI cultural presentations, award celebrations like the Traditional Celebration of Achievement(TCOA), professional development for our FNMI Liaisons, FNMI literacy materials for our classrooms and libraries, and student transportation to local cultural events such as the Métis Festival and Treaty Days celebrations, to name a few.
Fort McMurray Catholic Schools gratefully acknowledges the annual support and grant funding from our generous community partners.
