Principal's Message

Principal's December 2019 Message

It is with mixed emotion we announce that Ms. Robin Halbert will be leaving Briar Hill School at the end of December. Although we are sad to say goodbye, we are filled with gratitude for having had the opportunity to share in a journey of learning with such a remarkable educator. In her position as our Assistant Principal, and throughout her teaching career, Robin has inspired and supported students and colleagues to reach their best selves. Her unwavering belief in children as curious, capable and wondrous citizens has been central to all of Robin’s teaching and leadership roles. We know her love for education will continue as she embarks on new adventures on the west coast. Please join me in congratulating Robin on her 33 years of remarkable service to the Calgary Board of Education. Robin, you leave an indelible mark on all of our hearts. As we commence our holiday celebrations and look toward the new year, it’s important to remember that the need for charitable donations is constant, not seasonal. Consequently, I want to acknowledge all of the giving that has happened, and continues to happen, at Briar Hill School this year. To date, students and families have donated to the Canadian Cancer Fund through the Terry Fox Run, supported our veterans through the Poppy Fund, and collected winter clothing for families in need through our annual Jacket Racket campaign. As part of our ongoing commitment to our “We Care” motto, families are being invited to support the Calgary Food Bank during the months of December and January. For the next two months, non-perishable food items and essential baby/infant supplies will be collected inside the front entrance of our school. In early February 2020 we will donate all items to the food bank. Parents and guardians are reminded that our first term report cards will be sent home this week. You will notice a few changes on your child's first report card, including changes to the way in which Mathematics is reported. These changes are intended to more clearly define student achievement in mathematics. A new parent resource called How is My Child Doing in School provides detailed information about the many ways schools communicate how and what your child is learning, and how student achievement is communicated to you on report cards. Parent-Teacher conferences are scheduled for the evening afternoon/evening of December 12 and the morning of December 13. As was previously communicated, conferences can be booked online through MyCBE/PowerSchool. On December 17, all children in grades K–6 will be attending the Alberta Theatre Project’s performance of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Consent forms for this trip were sent home the first week of December. Thanks go out to Briar Hill School Council for generously funding this excursion. As indicated on our 2019-20 school calendar, December 13, December 20 and January 6 are non-instruction days for students. From all of Briar Hill staff, we wish you a warm and relaxing holiday season, in the company of family and friends. Sincerely,  
​Stephen Hart
Principal​
