Back-to-School Information

Welcome to Terry Fox School


I am delighted and excited to be the new principal at Terry Fox School. Without a doubt, my favorite day of the year is the first day of school. I look forward to meeting the students and their families. It is a day full of hope and excitement – meeting old friends and looking for new friends and wondering what the will be learning about. It is just the best and I know this will be a great year at Terry Fox School!

Can you volunteer?


We plan a number of field trips throughout the year at Fox. We believe that these field trips are essential to the learning of our students. We need parents and guardians who are able to chaperone any trips to come to the office and complete some paperwork so that they may accompany their student and classmates on these exciting opportunities. Our office is open from 8:30-4:00 Monday thru Thursday and 8:30-2:00 Friday.
