Principal’s Update

The last three weeks have flown by and the students (parents and staff), are getting back into the routines of school and activities.  It can often take several weeks for us to get used to the sleep patterns, school expectations, and shuffling around to the after school activities.  Students are starting to look more rested and relaxed than the first day of school!

All the staff at BSLS are very excited for a great year!  It is such a pleasure and honour to work with your children every day.

We have some exciting events coming up that we would love to invite you to.
