Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

It seems like just yesterday we were publishing our September newsletter.

It seems like just yesterday we were publishing our September newsletter. Like every other month this year, May was busy and flew past in a flurry of learning and fun! Several whole-school events kept our building lively, active, and filled with positive energy. On May 3, it was a pleasure having many of our volunteers at the school for our annual voluneer appreciation event. We welcomed the opportunity to show our gratitude to those who have graciously and kindly volunteered their time and energy to our school community during 2018-2019. On May 6, we had author Nadia Hohn visit our school to share her work and passion for literacy. Our students were active participants in this presentation that was intended to celebrate Canadian children’s books and the importance of reading. The following day, on May 7, our entire school gathered in the gymnasium for a guest performance by the Highland Secondary School band. This performance served to entertain and inspire our students and staff. On May 24, the musical talents of our students were showcased at a music sharing performance. This was a wonderful opportunity to highlight the spectacular learning that has been happening in Ms. Lecocq’s music classes.
As spring transitions into summer, our building is bursting with signs of life. Our classrooms are home to creatures and plants that have been offering an abundance of authentic learning opportunities for our students. As students are finishing the current grade and entering the next, it seems like the the perfect time to appreciate growth, changes and transitions. We have captured some of this excitement on page 2 of this newsletter. There you will find pictures of the frogs, fish, chicks, butterlies, plants and an ant that have had an opportunity to grow and mature at Briar Hill School this spring. Our school is continuing the process of planning for next year. We are inviting families and the community to take time to reflect on this year and make recommendations on how to improve our school. Never hesitate to provide feedback that you believe can make our school a better place. We all have an important stake in the success of our school and we hope you feel comfortable in sharing your thoughts with us.
The new school year begins on Tuesday, September 3, 2019. Please watch for key updates and information on our school website and via email in late August. Please take moment read the information in this newsletter and take note of the important dates for June.
Stephen Hart, Principal
Robin Halbert, Assistant Principal
