As we have settled into the rhythm of our weeks here at Brant, it is encouraging to see student activities all around the school. Personally, I am so impressed with the kinds of work I am seeing in all the classrooms. Whether it is the magic of seeing our younger students acquiring language and writing skills, or our older students as they design creative projects in groups or on their own, I am so blessed by what is happening at Brant. And I am especially grateful for all our wonderful staff who make this all happen.
Thank you for the respectful dialogue I have received personally, and have heard our families using towards others in discussions about the new vaccination policy by Palliser. Regardless of views, or the emotions they elicit, Christ compels us to act in a manner that brings God glory.
I have been very impressed with the reports of kids reading up a storm for the reading challenge. Some students report reading several hours per day! Reading is such an important foundational skill for success in school, and it is great to have fun pencils, stickers and even a pizza party to encourage kids to strengthen that skill.
Just a few reminders for the week ahead:

Also, I have been asked by the residents of Brant to remind families the speed limit is 30 kph if you drive through the town. I encourage all our families to be good neighbors to the people who live here and respect those speed limits while driving down their streets.
This week, despite starting on a really cold note, offered some amazing scenery out here in the country. Truly, “let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and everything that moves in them” (Psalm 69:4).
