Fisher Branch Early Years
Fisher Branch Early Years School is in the beautiful community of Fisher Branch, located in the heart of the Interlake. FBEYS is a diverse, inclusive, and caring learning environment. Our school encourages all individuals to cultivate and pursue their love of learning, while focusing on personal wellness and celebrating each unique individual.
2022-2023 School Goals
Outcome 1: Improve student numeracy through the implementation of number talks, problem solving strategies, think aloud, and open-ended math questions with students, to enhance student self assessment ("I can" / "What I Need" statements).
Outcome 2: Improve school culture through the enhancement of citizenship and celebration of each student’s culture, thus strengthening personal connections and community/family involvement.
Fisher Branch Early Years School is dedicated to promoting a positive, safe, caring, and inclusive environment, where children are encouraged to pursue their love of learning. The school community will ensure that all students are offered a complete education by providing them with the knowledge and skills required to become respectful lifelong learners.
