Fairbank Memorial Community School's Mission Statement
More Information About Fairbank Memorial Community School
What We do:
School Focus for Improvement:
We collaborate in our Professional Learning Communities to enhance student success. Our school improvement plan is based on current data and reflects our goals and strategies to improve student achievement in literacy and numeracy. Our SIP also addresses issues that impact on student pathways, and provides a focus on building parent and community engagement.
School Community and Climate
Our adherence to the Future Aces' philosophy is interwoven with the TDSB’s Character Development Program. As well, our Safe Schools Committee has redeveloped the school’s code of behaviour to promote positive interactions and enhance communication in order to create a safe, respectful and accepting learning and playing environment.
Fairbank Memorial offers opportunities for students to engage in a variety of extracurricular activities. Choir and dance instruction is offered, as well as sports activities such as basketball, soccer, cross-country running, track and field, and after-school physical literacy training. Teachers also provide tutoring support and engage students in club activities.

WHAT SETS US APART
PARENT AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
At Fairbank Memorial, parents are encouraged to be partners with staff to facilitate the educational, emotional, physical and social development of their children. Parent volunteers assist in classrooms, on field trips, at co-curricular activities and during sporting events. We have an active School Council that oversees fundraising events to support the implementation of school-wide and classroom enrichment activities. Fairbank Memorial staff and students benefit from community relationships with the Public Library, Toronto Parks and Recreation, Toronto Police Service, Public Health, and Teacher/ECE candidates from post-secondary institutions. Our partnerships with Fairbank Learnign Enrichmnet Foundation Child Care and the Early On Centre allow for a seamless transition to regular school for many of our young students.
