Hello All


Fernwood Elementary is now participating in the Thrifty Foods Smile Card Program. This is similar to the 1% Country Grocer program. Your child will be sent home with a card soon. If you are not interested or do not shop at Thrifty Foods please send the card back or give it to someone who does. The card is simple to use - simply load your card with money and use it like a gift card. The school will receive 5% of the loaded value. Example if you load $100 we will receive $5 and you will still receive $100. This school year the school could receive up to $1,500. The money raised will go towards upgrading the playground.  The card never expires and can be loaded again and again! If you require additional cards please let us know and we will ensure you receive as many as you wish. 


Hot Lunch orders are now being taken for the Spring Term! Available lunch  dates are April 25thMay 9thMay 25thJune 6th and June 20thLunch orders are due by the Friday before the lunch date. Payment can be made online with a credit card, at school with cash or cheque made out to "Fernwood PAC"  The money we raised with providing Hot lunch this year is being used for playground upgrades.

A GIANT thank you to our volunteers, a BIG thank to everyone who attended the 1st of what will become an annual event because of you all the dance was a HUGE success! The kids had a great time and have been asking for a repeat soon. The dance raised enough money to replace the rotten trellis in the garden and make a few much needed repairs. 

Thank you for all your support
