District Logo

The Board believes that a standard logo is important for corporate identification and to show unity within the District.

The Fort McMurray Public School District logo, which includes the operational name, shall be used for corporate identification and promotional purposes.

The design is to be reminiscent of a blackboard and a computer screen, tools of education past and present. The apple is a traditional symbol of a happy relationship that exists among teachers, children and families. The background colour green symbolizes growth in the educational development of the children fostered by the public education system.
