The Beauty of Fall

Hello Families of Brant, 

What a wonderful time of year. Our God’s great creativity is in full display as leaves begin to turn beautiful hues of orange, yellow, red and brown. 

Brant Parent Social 
There will be a Brant Parent Social at 7:00 pm on Sunday, October 1st at the High River Alliance Church. This is a great opportunity for parents both new to Brant and those who’ve been part of the Brant community for a few years to meet.  It will be fun to get to know the parents of the friends our kids spend so much time with at school:)  

Our junior and senior teams competed in tournaments in Vulcan, Oilfields, and Three Hills last weekend. Although we did not bring back medals this time, each game showed remarkable improvement. The senior boys and girls will again be off to tournaments this Friday and Saturday with the boys in Three Hills and the girls playing at Oilfields in Diamond Valley.  Go Eagles Go!

Cross Country 
On September 26, we had our Grade 3 - 6 classes participating in the cross country meet at the Southern Alberta Bible College.  Our athletes did tremendously well with the following students winning medals: 

Gold: Cody B. (8yr old boys); Elias K. (9yr old boys); Andrew M. (10yr old boys) 

Silver: Everly T. (7yr old girls); Ava R. (10yr old girls); 

Bronze: Greyson W. (7yr old boys); Olive K. (10yr old girls) 

All our students displayed outstanding sportsmanship with a special shout out to Kiffer D. for exemplary fair play. 

It is to be noted that the junior and senior high school cross country zones will take place on October 11 in Pincher Creek. Students are to sign up with Mr. Chisholm as soon as possible.  Cost is $30 to be paid at
