Principal's Message

Dec. 2018/Jan. 2019

“For last year's words belong to last year's language And next year's words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning." T.S. Eliot
Hello Bowness!
As the holiday season is upon us, it is a chance to reflect on the past year’s challenges and successes and to look forward to all that is to come in 2019. Is it just me, or do the years seem to be speeding up?!
This has been a very busy fall at Bowness High School. If you have a student in the Fine Arts or Athletics, you can certainly attest to the number of rides your child has been demanding. Thank you for supporting them as they pursue their passions. The Fine Arts Department has been busy preparing several performances and shows including Clue, by our Drama Department, along with the Unbound Art Gala, which just finished their runs yesterday. On the horizon, we have the Dance Show on December 5 and 6th and our Winter Music Concert on December 13. Please check on our website for ticket information. These shows are the culmination of countless hours of practice and rehearsal – please come out and support the Arts at Bowness.
The fall athletic season was beyond successful, with six teams (Jr. Football, Sr. Football, Girls, Soccer, Sr. Girls, Volleyball, Jr. Girls, Volleyball, Jr. Boys, Volleyball) advancing to City Finals in their divisions. Special congratulations to our two junior volleyball teams for capturing the gold! We are so proud of the efforts of all of our student athletes and thank you immensely to our volunteer coaches who give selflessly to support our students. Now on to Swim, Wrestling and Basketball seasons! Teachers and students are working hard as they move towards the end of the semester.
Diploma Exams start on January 14 and all other exams start on January 18th. While the last day of formal classes is January 16th, the school is open for business throughout the month. Students are welcome to come during regular school hours to meet with teachers (please make an appointment in case the teacher is invigilating an exam or marking Diploma exams in Edmonton), to complete course work in the Learning Centre, or to study for upcoming exams. My suggestion would be to maintain as much routine as possible, including regular bedtimes, through January so that when February is upon us, and semester two begins, students are ready to succeed. If students are finding that they are in need of extra supports to complete a course, I ask that they connect with their teacher as soon as possible so we can be as flexible and supportive as possible. A reminder that the first day of semester 2 is January 31st. We will be running a modified timetable that day with a dismissal of 1:05. February 1st is a day off for all students and teaching staff in the CBE to account for the fact that Remembrance Day fell on a weekend.
Our School Development Plan is now posted on our Bowness website. I invite you to peruse the goals set by each of our core departments as they strive to support your learners. Much time and effort has gone into this work, along with deep professional dialogue. I applaud my staff for their work and their focus on how to improve their practice to better serve their students.
I do wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season and all the best in 2019! If you are travelling, be safe and do not forget the sunscreen if you need it (I am jealous). If you are staying in Calgary, enjoy building memories in the warmth of your own home or the snow of the mountains.
Sincerely,
Jana Macdonald Principal, Bowness High School and hopefully on Santa’s nice list!
