BFH Falcons View

January to 23 to 27, 2023

Principal's Message

Dear Falcon students and families,


I hope you are all doing well and were able to get out and enjoy the amazing weather this past weekend. Last week our Bev Facey students began writing their final assessments. I know that for many students this can be an anxious and somewhat difficult exercise. I've been extremely impressed by how our students have stepped up and are working hard at preparing themselves both cognitively and psychologically to meet the challenge.


This upcoming week we will be completing the bulk of our last remaining final exams and Diplomas. We will also be focused on providing our annual Advanced Placement information night on this Thursday, January 26 in our library. The event will begin at 6 pm, and prospective students and parents will also have the opportunity to join us virtually as well. The night will be full of information from our administration, our current teachers, and will also feature our current AP students sharing their experience in the program.


I hope you all have an amazing week, and as always, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.



Ken Wlos

Timetable Change Process

Requests for timetable changes for the second semester will be processed through the Course Change Request Google Form. Once your grade level administrator receives your request they will attempt to make the change. Course changes may not be viable due to class sizes, and or other selections made by the student. In those cases grade administrators will either inform a student by email or set up a meeting to alert the student that the change is not available. Access the form by clicking the button below.

Counsellor's Corner

Post Secondary Planning

As we navigate the end of the first semester, we are still making an intensified effort to touch base with each of our students around their plans for their future after high school. It is our pleasure to work along side you and your student this second semester.

Nobody knows your child better than you do. As a parent your insight into your child is a valuable resource. The more we understand about your child’s path forward, the more effectively we can support their needs. If you have questions or would like to touch base, please don't hesitate to contact us.


Kindly,

Admin and Counselling
