BFH Falcons View

November 22 to 26, 2021

Principal's Message

Dear Falcon students and families,


I hope you all had an excellent weekend! We are coming off another great week at Facey that was full of events highlighted by our FLI sponsored activities around the "Bullying Awareness initiative" and our Awards celebration from the 2020-2021 School year. If you have not already done so please view the YouTube videos of all three award ceremonies embedded within this week's newsletter.


The focus of our upcoming week will be our feature events involving the year's first Bev Facey Grad 2022 Parent/Student meeting (Wednesday, November 24 @ 6:00 p.m.), and three Career Pathway meeting opportunities for our students. These meetings provide an excellent opportunity for all our students to gain information around preparing for entry into the workplace or for further exploring learning opportunities in a variety of career paths. For further information on these meetings please refer to the embedded "EIPS Career Pathways" newsletter.


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


Ken Wlos

Principal
