Welcome Back | September 2019

Dear Parents & Guardians,

We hope that you had a wonderful summer and were able to spend quality time with family and friends. Our first week of school has been busy, exciting and fun. We are absolutely thrilled about the positive climate of learning that has been created in our building by students, teachers and parents. Please know that it has been a pleasure to welcome new and returning families to our Briar Hill School community for the 2019-20 school year.

Due to an unfavourable weather forecast, the Welcome Back BBQ, originally planned for September 10, has been cancelled. At this time, an alternate date has not been set. The first council meeting of the year will start at 6:45 p.m. on Tuesday, September 10. All parents/guardians are welcome to attend this meeting. Please be aware that our Meet the Teacher conference sessions will take place after school on Thursday, September 19 and during the day on Friday, September 20. These scheduled conferences will be an opportunity to meet your child’s teacher and learn about the upcoming school year. The online booking system will open one week prior to our conferences. In preparation, it is important that you create a MyCBE / PowerSchool account as this platform will be used for all conference bookings. Please see the following instructions:

On Friday, September 6, we held our first whole-school assembly. The purpose of our gathering was to build school community and to establish a tone that emphasizes kindness, respect and understanding. We look forward to supporting students as we work together to promote an inclusive and caring atmosphere in our school. Thank you for your contributions and ongoing commitment to our learning community.


Stephen Hart, Principal
Robin Halbert, Assistant Principal​
