Upcoming Family Day/Week Off

Family Day/Week
I hope the week ahead will give you and your family a chance to take a break in order to connect, reconnect, get some exercise and just have a time to get refreshed spiritually and relationally.

***Registration for 2024-25***
We want to remind all our Brant families that are planning on registering your child(ren) at BCS for September 2024-25 that registration opened today, February 15, 2024. All returning families in good standing can begin registering on February 15 and will have their spot reserved if they register by March 14, 2024. For families new to Brant, registration opens on March 15, 2024 . If you are a returning family or know someone who wants to register their children at BCS, it is important to register as soon as you are permitted as some classes are already near capacity . Late registrants will run the risk of being put on a waiting list should some classes be full.

Seamstress for Grad Gowns
We are in need of a seamstress to repair 10 of the Grad Gowns. Every year the enthusiastic Grads detach the lower portion of the zippers on the Gowns and they need some reinforcement for the next year. If you are able to do this or know of someone who would be willing to donate their time for these repairs, please contact Christine Wasik by email or by calling the school. Thank you!

Parent Teacher Conferences
Parent Teacher conferences will be held on both Wednesday, March 20 and Thursday, March 21 from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. Please go to to book appointments. If you booked in the fall you will use the same account. If you are new to school appointments, please create an account. Appointments are 10 minutes long. Please only book for core classes (LA, Math, Science and Social) and band with Mr. Korthuis due to time constraints. Add students by clicking on the “Add a student” button. Click on “Appointments” beside the student name and you can collect multiple teachers by holding the “ctrl” key. Please contact Mrs. Massey if you have any questions.

Ski Trip
Ski trip registrations have been sent in and we are looking forward to March 8th and getting out on the ski hill at Nakiska. Just a quick note that because Nakiska Ski Hill is in the Kananaskis, park passes will be required for the day. You can purchase a pass at this link below for a day ($15) or a year ($90.

Open House
Brant Christian School’s annual Open House will take place Thursday, Feb. 29th from 3-7 pm. Please let your friends, family and neighbours interested in BCS about this opportunity to tour around the school and ask questions. If you would like to help at the open house with baking, serving refreshments or to help with hosting, please put in your name on the link:

Yearbook 2023-24
If you would like for your child to look back at how “cool” they were at Brant in 2023-24, or have them take a stroll down memory lane 20 years from now, please don’t hesitate to buy a 2023-24 yearbook. Yearbooks must be purchased online at before June in order for us to know the number needed to order from Lifetouch.

Mission Trip Flower Fundraiser
This fundraiser has traditionally been in support of mission work both nationally or internationally. Students have traveled to Mexico to build homes for local residents and have been to Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside to serve street people suffering from addictions. As yet, we have not decided on our mission trip for 2025, but we would love to have you purchase flower baskets knowing that your funds would be going to support the student who you purchase flowers from, in blessing and giving hope to those less fortunate. If you don’t know a student going into grade 9-12 next year to designate your purchase, the amount raised will go into our general missions fund. Please contact the school office for more information. Don’t forget the deadline for orders to be into Mrs. Massey is Tuesday, Feb. 27th.

Badminton (Grades 7-12)
If your junior/senior high school son or daughter would like to play on the badminton team this year, they will need to fill out the permission form that has been sent home. Practices are scheduled at 7am at the High River Rec Centre on Fridays when school is not in session beginning on Friday, February 8th through to April 5th . There is a $5 drop-in fee for all participants. There will be a qualifying zone playdown tournament in mid-April with those who qualify going on to zones at the end of April. Please remind your children to submit the permission form as soon as possible.

Hot Lunch
Hot lunches take place every Thursday. Hot lunches rotate between hot dogs, taco in a bag, pizza, hamburgers and pulled pork sandwiches. March orders will open tomorrow on and the deadline will be Monday, March 4th to have orders completed.

Parent Volunteers
As we continue to grow in student population, the Parent Engagement Group is asking for parent volunteers for the following roles to help better support our teachers and students:
K-6 (Tuesday and Thursday mornings)
- Classroom assistance: To be able to help with language arts and/or math skills in small group settings
- Administrative tasks (e.g. laminating, preparing materials, …etc.)

Gr. 7 - 12
- Math tutoring at noon hours (twice a week)

K - 12 Playground and Lunch Hour Supervision
Our breaks take place at 10-10:15, 11:45-12:15 and 2:00-2:15. Helping with supervision is such a blessing for staff and students as it helps teachers provide students with extra help for concepts they may struggle with, helps students complete tests or assignments they may need to catch up on because of absences. If you’d like to help in any of these capacities, please sign up at: . We hope to get in contact with you as needs arise. Thanks so much!

Prayer Team at BCS
Regarding a Prayer Team at BCS - After some discussion and back-and-forth with teachers, PEG meeting, etc, we have decided to try two things: There will be a time of prayer for BCS following each month's PEG meeting and there will be a bi-weekly prayer email sent out with prayer requests and answered prayer reports. We invite you to be part of the prayer time at PEG! Also, if you would like to be on the prayer email list, please email and you will be added. Please reach out to other Brant families and let them know about this opportunity!

Write-On Bulletin Board
Parents, want to brag on/encourage your kids? We have a way to do that! We have a "Write On" bulletin board at school in the main hallway where our student's achievements can be posted and celebrated! Simply send a note with an article or photo to Cathy Massey, who will print it and post it on the board. Simple as that!

Finally, feel free to reach out to me should you have any ideas or concerns, or just want to chat.

Mr Shain Chisholm, Principal
