Principal's Message

January Update

Dear Parents & Guardians,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you back to Briar Hill School in 2018. It is my hope that you have found time over the holiday to celebrate, relax, and spend time with family and friends. I wish each of you a Happy New Year filled with much joy and happiness.
Let me also take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am Stephen Hart, and I am honoured to be serving as your new principal. It is with a great sense of gratitude and enthusiasm that I accept the opportunity to become a part of the Briar Hill School community. I consider myself truly privileged to be the principal of this established and successful school. I know from meeting with your past principal, Pat Loewen, that Briar Hill School is a school committed to excellence. Please be assured of my commitment to honouring past accomplishments and my steadfast intention of contributing to continued success. As your school’s new principal, I pledge to communicate and work with you to be certain that decisions are made with our students’ best interests in mind. My desire is to see Briar Hill School continue to be recognized as an exceptional learning environment where all students can learn, grow, and realize their full potential. 
Over the past two decades I have held diverse roles in education including that of Field Instructor, Research Assistant, Teacher, Learning Leader, and Assistant Principal. These postings have involved experiences in Ontario, Alberta, and Taiwan. Most recently I was at H.D. Cartwright School where I served as the Assistant Principal. Previous to that appointment, I was the Assistant Principal of Captain Nichola Goddard School. My initial experiences with the Calgary Board of Education included teaching and leadership appointments at Brentwood School. In addition to my professional accomplishments, I feel that my experiences as a parent have also informed my understanding of teaching and learning. I am married and have three young sons.
With the New Year comes an important staffing update. I would like to welcome Daniela Tereshchuk to our teaching team. Daniela provides us with a wonderful opportunity to advance literacy work that is connected to the Classroom Improvement Fund. Over the remainder of the school year Daniela will be working in all of our classes in various capacities to support the literacy objectives of our School Development Plan. 
I look forward to getting to know each of you and your children in the near future. Please feel free to email me at sthart@cbe.ab.ca, call me at 403-777-6140, or say hello in person. I would appreciate the opportunity to hear about the experiences you and your children have had that make Briar Hill School such a remarkable place to learn together. Thank you in advance for your continued support of this wonderful school.
Warmest regards,
Stephen Hart Principal​
