PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE 

Dear FEIA Family and Community,
 
As Head Principal of the Fort Erie International Academy, it is my pleasure to welcome both new
and returning families to another great year at FEIA. We are all very excited to have students
back in our classrooms and hallways, filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is
our mission to help every student feel welcomed, connected and part of our FEIA Family.
 
We further strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic, social and physical
abilities to ultimately, be post-secondary school-ready by the end of grade 12. At FEIA, we have highly qualified teachers who have spent hours upon hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning. Our teachers utilize research-based best practices and analyze academic data to determine current skill levels and to set goals for growth and improvement. We believe that all students should graduate from high school prepared for the demands of post-secondary education, meaningful careers and effective citizenship.
 
We hope you will find our website helpful and informative. All of the information we send out via email can also be found on the news section and/or parent section of FEIA.ca. Our weekly This Week @ FEIA newsletters are emailed to parents on Friday afternoons and we upload a copy to the news tab on our website. We have also provided the school year calendar that showcases advanced notice on PD Days, holidays and even examination dates. We also have each a Facebook, Twitter and Instagram page that we use to share updates and quick announcements as we go through the school year and a YouTube channel that showcases any video content we’ve developed.
 
Of course, we can’t talk about a new school year without addressing COVID-19. We have been
in constant communication with each the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health and they have confirmed that we are going above and beyond their requirements in keeping our staff, students and community as safe as possible. The attached infographic details our return to school COVID19 plan.
 
I am honoured to serve as the Head Principal of Fort Erie International Academy. It truly is a privilege to be part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Please feel free to contact me at 1.888.998.0899 or at connie.stella@feia.ca.
 
Once again, welcome back! Let’s make it another great year at FEIA together; We’ll see you on
Tuesday, September 8th 8:30 am to kick it all off! Students will come to the backfield area on the south asphalt where they will check-in and line up with their grade level homeroom teacher. The school day ends at 4:15pm. We will not be hosting our after school program for the first week of school; a subsequent letter is coming soon with more details on this.
