BFH Falcons View

June 20 to 24, 2022

Principal's Message

Dear Falcon students and families,


I hope you all had an great weekend and were able to get some rest and sun in the second half of the weekend! This past week saw many of our students beginning their final assessments for the year. We also hosted all our new grade 10 students and their parents at the Bev Facey "Beach Bash". It was attended very well, and we were happy to have our students and staff tour the parents and our new Falcons throughout the school to feature all the great opportunities. The week ended with our students starting the first day of the 2022 exam session with their math finals or diploma exam.


The upcoming week is full of exams. Please refer to the exam schedule for details of the students' final assessments or diploma exams. We also want to encourage students to reach out to their teachers if they need support preparing for their exams. Students can do so by emailing their teacher a request to see if an academic coaching session can be arranged.


On that note, I hope you all have an amazing Sunday evening and a great upcoming week and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.


Ken Wlos

Bev Facey "Beach Bash" was a Huge Success!

On Thursday, June 16 Bev Facey welcomed over 300 parents and new grade 10 students for the next year in our fun tour and activity based "Beach Bash"! Our amazing students acted as tour guides, while staff provided information, and administration served up barbecued hamburgers and hot dogs. It was so great to meet our incoming grade 10's and their parents and start the relationships that will be so important to us all over the next three years!

Bev Facey Band Parent Association
