Welcome to Principal’s Corner. Last week, we enjoyed watching the Canadians play World Cup soccer in the flex space at noon. It created quite the excitement. Thank you to all who supported the Holiday Wreath Fundraiser. It smelled a lot like Christmas in the flex space. Our music teacher, Mrs. Olson, is working hard with our students on Christmas Concert selections. Save the dates for our upcoming Christmas Concerts! (See schedule below) We look forward to performing for you all. We received notification from Alberta Health Services that we are no longer in outbreak status. Thank you for keeping students home when they are ill.
It looks like we have some cold weather coming this week. Bundle up!

Thank you to Stephanie Bailey and our School Council for advocating on behalf of our school to bring this program to our school. Many thanks to the City of Beaumont for supporting this.
The City of Beaumont has provided each school with two family passes for the BSRC. Families can sign out the pass for one week and use the BSRC for free. If the pass is not returned on the due date or if it is lost or damaged, a $20 fee will be added to your PowerSchool account. The pass will be signed out to your child through our library Destiny program. Once you fill out this form (click on image above), the librarian will sign the pass out and email you when the pass is coming home with your child. The goal is to have as many families as possible use the pass so we will not reissue a pass to a family that has already signed it out. Please return the family pass to the school office.
