School Council

School councils formalize parents' voice in educational matters at the school level and reaffirm their meaningful involvement in their children's education. For this reason, all parents are regarded as members of the school council and are encouraged to attend monthly meetings to provide advice about important issues that impact our school and get involved in planning community building events and fundraisers.

Principal's Message

October 2022

​Good morning Buffalo Rubbing Stone families,
As September comes to a close, we're taking time to reflect on all that we've accomplished and we're looking ahead to October. 
At a total of 668 students, BRS is the biggest we've ever been.  We have welcomed approximately 250 new students!  We've also welcomed new teachers and support staff.  Everyone has been getting to know each other and building routines that support such a busy building. 
It has been a busy month for school events.  On the first day of school, grades 1-5 met on the school field for an opening assembly. Last Tuesday, we were all outside for the Terry Fox Run.  Thank you to the parent volunteers who supported the run – we couldn't have done it without you!  We were so excited to have the building full of families last Thursday night.  It was great to reconnect in person.  We've also recognized two important days this month: last week all students participated in a virtual assembly on the National Day of Mourning and this week everyone has been focussed on the upcoming National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day. We've also successfully completed our first fire drill and our first lockdown practice; learning to keep ourselves and each other safe is very important.  While each of these whole school events is important to meet specific learning objectives, they also provide opportunities for students to function together as large group. 
Last week, Mrs. Neufeld and I met with the BRS School Council and the BRS Parent Association to discuss important school issues and make some plans for this year.  The Annual General Meetings of both groups will be on Tuesday, October 25 here at the school.  It will be one of the few in-person meetings of the year as most will remain online.  We will circulate the agenda in advance and hope many of the parents will join us.  For a number of years, the School Council and the school have been involved with the City and the Calgary Police Service to address traffic safety.  Many of you have noticed the new cross walk that has been installed as a result of that work.  Thank you to everyone who has advocated for enhanced traffic safety measures and thank you to everyone who chooses safety over convenience and obeys the traffic safety laws.  A few things the Parent Association is busy organizing are spirit wear and fun lunch.  Look for information about both in the days to come.
During this morning's announcements, I borrowed words from our Governor General Her Excellency Mary Simon, delivered last Friday on our National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, “What will you do today, tomorrow, and everyday, to be part of a better Canada, one that reflects us all?"  As we take what we've learned in September and build on it throughout the year these words, filled with the action of reconciliation, will guide our next steps.
Take good care,
Allison
