November 29 2019: BES Christmas Concert, Important Dates, School & Family Wellness Worker

Spotlight on Learning
Our playgrounds have reached substantial completion, with additional landscaping to occur in the spring!  We are all enjoying having additional space and the opportunity for adventure play. Students have been playing cooperatively; sharing and taking turns.  A huge thank you to our playground committee (including parent Sam Frey and Town of Banff employees Amanda Arbuckle and Colin Harris). Hard to believe they cost $400,000!
