Principal's Message

January 14th, 2020

​Dear Balmoral Families,
 Welcome to the New Year at Balmoral TLC! Thank you for ensuring students arrived on time for classes after having some well-deserved rest and rejuvenation time over the last two weeks. It was a chilly start with some of our students arriving dressed for warmer weather. Please make note of the colder weather in the coming weeks and make sure students are prepared for outdoor activities in weather above -20 degrees C (the CBE standard for outdoor activities). 
  A reminder to parents to confirm that they have their MyCBE account set up and functioning as we will not be printing report cards at the end of January. Assessments continue throughout the school year and a summative Report Card will be generated for January 30th, which will be visible through the parent portal of PowerSchool. Marks that are normally visible in PowerSchool have currently been turned off as teachers are beginning to finalize report cards, adding comments to be available for viewing on January 30th. 
 If you know of anyone interested in enrolling their children in Balmoral School’s TLC program, please have them join us for an information evening, January 15th @ 6:00 pm at the school.  We will use the Lottery system to decide which children are able to attend should registration numbers be over capacity for our school.   The lottery is held on the 12th in February.
 As we begin to prepare for High School transitions, Grade 9 students often find themselves under some pressure. I would encourage everyone to continue to strive to achieve their best, keeping their goals in sight. We will be working with our designated High Schools to ensure that students are as prepared as possible for transitioning.   I want to remind families that the upcoming report card will guide our recommendations for programs and placements. All of our Grade 9 students have been given the opportunity to attend High School tours, and information about alternative programs such as IB/AP are available directly through the high school. Please check which high school you are designated to by visiting CBE.AB.CA, find a school: https://www.cbe.ab.ca/schools/find-a-school/Pages/default.aspx
 Thanks to all parents who generously gifted teachers/staff with treats and offerings before the holidays. Although not necessary, your gestures are an appreciated recognition of the rewarding work that our staff do every day, here at Balmoral TLC.
 Wishing you all a successful and healthy year in 2020! 
 Scott Jeffrey,
Principal, Balmoral Traditional Learning Centre
