A wonderful fall greeting to all our Brant families!
What a great way to end our week together, a wonderful day at the Calgary Farmyard. Even though it was not as hot as we have been used to this summer, it was a fantastic community-building time for all our students and staff. As the first chance to spend time with not only their classmates but also the other grades this year, this becomes a foundational trip for our school. I always enjoy watching everything that happens on field trip days, and the ways our students demonstrate their care for others even while they are having fun. I also enjoyed spending time with our volunteers who came along to help us chaperone. Thank you so much. We have such an amazing group of families here, and I am grateful for the dedication so many show in helping us provide these opportunities for our kids. We are truly blessed.
A couple of reminders:
Our strings group begins meeting on Monday, Sept 12 at lunch and they are reminded to bring their instruments on Monday to participate in this excellent group. We are very blessed to have an opportunity like this for our students and I am grateful to Karen Dees for all the hard work that goes into making this possible.
Our prayer group meets on Monday afternoons, to lift the concerns of our community before the Lord. If you wish to participate, they meet at 2:30 here at the school (on the stage). We know the prayers of the righteous lead to change (James 5:16) and we appreciate all the prayers that are offered for our school, wherever they are made. If you have any questions or prayer requests, please contact Susanne. Thank you!
Volleyball practices are well underway at this point. We appreciate all our coaches and volunteers who ensure our students get this opportunity and are able to get to practices or games. Please note the times for your child’s practices. Thank you!
Since we now have a shop program, we have the ability to create projects at the school in coordination with Mr. Mallach. If you know of some good, solid wood from an old barn or other construction project that would work, please let me know.
Finally, our country lost our monarch this week, with the death of Queen Elizabeth II. This represents the end of an era for our country and our world. We join with our provincial and national leaders in praying for our new king as the head of our government.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend. May the Peace of God rest on your homes this weekend.
Quinn Barreth, Principal
