FMPSD Celebrates Annual Partners in Education Night

Posted on:

(Fort McMurray, AB - October 13th, 2023) The Fort McMurray Public School Division (FMPSD)  hosted its eighth annual Partners in Education event last night, which celebrated and honoured the invaluable contributions of over 100 distinguished partners in enhancing the quality of education offered in the Division. This prestigious event was a memorable night of gratitude, appreciation, and recognition of the dedicated support and generosity of supporters, donors, volunteers, and community partners.

The FMPSD greatly values all its partners’ contributions and recognises their pivotal role in ensuring the Division’s daily success. The partnership between the students, staff, Board of Trustees, Parent(s)/Guardian(s), and the broader community helps to create a positive and thriving environment in the Division, promoting academic excellence, visual and performing arts, athletics, and a host of other extracurricular activities.

A significant highlight of the evening was the presentation of well-deserved awards and commendations to the partners for their outstanding contributions to improving education in the Division. FMPSD expresses its gratitude and appreciation to each and every partner who has contributed to the enhancement of educational programming and acknowledges that it would not have been possible to achieve the level of success experienced without their support, dedication, and commitment.

FMPSD remains committed to providing the best possible educational experience for students, and the Division’s partners are instrumental in helping to achieve this goal. Year after year, the Partners in Education event signals a renewed commitment to continued collaboration, growth, and success, and we look forward to achieving even more significant milestones together with our partners.
