Dear Parents and Visitors,
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! A new school year is always a time of great excitement and anticipation. As a staff we are excited about working together as a school community to achieve our school goals.
Buffalo Head Prairie School continues to offer a strong academic program. This year we will strive to learn and grow in our priority areas of connectivity, literacy, and numeracy in an effort to create meaningful learning opportunities for students. As we also consider the practical application that will be required of students to navigate themselves responsibly in today’s society, we have some tremendous challenges ahead of us. Buffalo Head's School Education Plan outlines the structure that will be used to address jurisdictional and school goals. This plan was developed by members of our school community and demonstrates an investment of educational energy by all parties.
Emphasis is also placed on clubs and sports at our school in an effort to give all students something special to look forward to outside the classroom. We know that children involved in extra-curricular events have the opportunity to build positive relationships in school, learn new life skills, and have an enthusiasm for their school work place that is highly beneficial. This is an important part of the total educational experience.
As parents, you play a key role in your child’s education. Speaking positively about school, sharing the value of learning, and reinforcing key learning concepts at home can make an incredible difference! I would like to thank you in advance for the work you will do to be supportive parents this year. When students, parents, and staff all work together, great strides can be made towards making a school an exceptional one.
As a school staff, we will work hard for the children in our care this year. Please feel free to contact myself or our assistant principal, Mrs. Morris, should you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year.
Mr. C. Fehr
