Principal Update

Our latest update from our Principal

Hello Parent(s) of Beiseker Community School (BCS) Students,

Welcome back! A new year is upon us and we are all super excited to be back in school!

High School Final Exam Schedule (10-12)
Last day of regular classes for high school students (Grade 10-12) is on Friday, January 18th, 2019. The first day of Semester II is Thursday, January 31st.  A copy of the final exam schedule is included in this newsletter, and it is also posted on our school website. It should be noted for Grade 7, 8 and 9 students, regular classes will continue until Semester II begins.

Semester II Timetable/Teacher Changes
In order to help meet the programming needs of our students, there are some teacher changes in our timetable for Semester II we would like to make you aware of. For PE 1-3, Mr. Grant will be taking over from Mr. Masson. In Grade 8, Mr. Masson will be taking over science from Mr. Lutness.

If you wish to see your child’s timetable for second semester (Grades 7-12), please go to the Parent PowerSchool Portal, go to “My Schedule” and scroll down. Unfortunately, the phone app does not allow you to see student schedules until the first day of Semester II, so using a browser on a computer is the best way to access schedules now.

Grade 8 Kathyrn Activity Morning – Tuesday, January 29
We are very pleased to be welcoming the Grade 8 students of Kathyrn School to BCS the morning of the 29th. During this time, the students from Kathyrn will be participating in three learning experiences with the BCS Grade 8s including doing an activity in foods, drama and shop.

K -6 Active Living Day
BCS is pleased to announce our annual K-6 active living day is happening once again. On Thursday, February 14, students will be going to Genesis Place in Airdrie for various physical activities. The Grade 4-6 students will have the option of going skiing to Nakiska that day. We would like to thank the BCS Education Advisory Association for their financial contributions in order to make these trips more affordable for parents/students. The school is also contributing as well.

School Blog
Have you checked out our school blog lately? It is a great way to keep informed about all the great things that are happening here at BCS. The blog, as well as our Facebook page and Twitter feed is a great way to be informed of all the great things that are occurring here at BCS.

APORI Survey
On that note, for parents of students in Grades 4, 7 and 10, by the end of the month you will be receiving information in the mail regarding Alberta Education’s Accountability Pillar Survey (APORI). This survey is issued to parents in Grades 4, 7, and 10. The survey can be done by either paper copy or online. This survey gives parents the opportunity to provide feedback on the great things happening at BCS every day as well as to give us insight on things to improve on in our school.

Please take time now to enjoy the rest of the newsletter.

Mr. Montgomery
