I hope you enjoyed a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. I am so delighted that you have invested in a Catholic Education for your child(ren). I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children.

All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff is already planning and preparing for your child(ren). Our enthusiastic office team is registering new families, ordering needed materials and updating student files. Our hard working and conscientious custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning the facility. We are indeed a joyous and caring community with the common goals of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting a faith-filled learning environment.

New Staff

Each year brings positive change. This includes a few additions to our staff.

Ms. Healy -French

Ms. Zimmer - Gr. ?

Ms. Carbert & Mrs. Kavanagh- Gr.3

Ms. Berry - Gr.6

Mrs. Sepper - Gr.6/7

Student Placement

A great deal of time, effort and thought has gone into the process of student placement for the 2016-2017 school year.

Careful consideration was given to input from staff and families as well as student learning styles. Classrooms have been balanced academically and socially. Our class lists are structured to provide equitable class sizes at each grade level.  However, with the growing community in Tottenham, our school will likely be involved in restructuring many classrooms in the next couple of weeks.

Thank you so much for being positive with your child and helping him or her understand that it is impossible to place all students with a preferred best friend or teacher. ALL of our staff work hard to make school a positive experience for ALL students. FFX is eagerly looking forward to enriching your child’s life. Thank you for understanding that it can take a few weeks for a child to acclimate to a new grade, peer group and teacher.

Thank you to all who are helping prepare for the new school year. Your commitment to ensuring that FFX remains a celebrated and successful school is awe-inspiring. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal.
