BFH Falcons View

May 24 to 27, 2022

Principal's Message

Dear Falcon students and families,


I hope you all had an amazing May long weekend and were able to enjoy some of the great weather! This past week saw our our concert band travel to Red Deer for the Provincial Music Festival, while our Grade 10 photography class was out and about in the wetlands of Strathcona county, and our Physics 20/30 classes attended some labs at the University of Alberta. I also would like to congratulate a number of athletes from our Falcons track team who qualified for the Metro city championships this past Thursday.


This upcoming week is proving to be one of the busiest this year at Bev Facey. For the majority of the week we will be diligently preparing for our 2022 Graduation ceremony and celebrating the Grade 12's accomplishments with a series of Grad themed dress up days. Along with all this activity, our Musical Theatre production of "Newsies" will run throughout the week, and I would like to take this opportunity to invite all of you to take in this amazing show by our fantastic students. Another highlight activity of the week will be our Track team taking part in the Metro City finals on Thursday. The culminating apex activity of the week will be our Graduation ceremony on Saturday followed by our Facey Formal.


I hope you all have an excellent holiday Monday evening and a fantastic week and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.


Ken Wlos

Principal

By Grade 11, many students are starting to think about their future, are likely making a steady income from a part-time position, and are making financial decisions on a regular basis. These practical money skills will familiarize Grade 11 students with pay stubs, savings options, and loans and credit options.
