BFH Falcons View

October 18 to 22, 2021

Principal's Message

Dear Falcon students and families,


I hope you all had a chance to enjoy the amazing weather on Saturday! Although last week was a short week there was still lots of learning fit into the 4 days. As we move into our sixth week of the semester, many of our students have been taking advantage of the academic coaching and exam writing rooms on Opportunity Wednesdays.


As we approach another short week we have a number of important events coming up, starting with our hosting of the municipal election on Monday in our Banner Gym. Please get out and vote! Our school council meeting is on Tuesday, Oct. 19, and I would encourage everyone to consider attending. The council is still looking to elect two more important positions for this year, and we are always looking to get more input from our parents. On Wednesday, Oct. 20, at 6:00 p.m. we will be hosting a virtual information presentation for all our AP families on the advantages of the program. Finally, on Friday, Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m., we would like to invite all our families to attend our feature Sr. Football game versus Spruce Grove Composite. It's important that we have a lot of fans in the stands cheering on our school during this important game (wearing Bev Facey wear gets you into the game free of charge).


As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Ken Wlos
