Principal's Message

As a school, last year we focused on growth as a school.  We dug into school culture and what it really means to be a Bobcat.  This year, we put all this work in place.  We have a fully developed matrix for Respect, Resilience and Responsibility, and have begun teaching these values in our advisory groups.  Our advisory groups are small groups from our school wide house teams, which started this school year.  We have designed a system to track and encourage positive behavior all connected to house team points.  School culture is everyone’s (students, staff, and families) responsibility.   Our mission states: at Bow Valley High School, we strive to build connections based on mutual respect and empathy, through which staff, students, and families can achieve meaningful learning, growth, and success.  I think the key to this statement revolves around the words “mutual respect and empathy”.  To be a successful school, students, staff, and families need to show each other mutual respect and empathy.  We are all invested in education for one reason…the students.  I ask that we partner in our support of students and work to understand each person’s perspective. We know that capacity issues at BVHS have caused strain to the system.  We look forward to a significant expansion project starting this school year, which will provide BVHS with the space needed to operate truly impactful hands-on learning opportunities.  This project will certainly come with its growing pains, but we stay focused on the end goal, which is a top-notch educational facility for our amazing Bow Valley students.   I am proud of all the work that staff and students have done over the past year and cannot wait to see the results of this as we make our way through the school year.
