The September 30th, 2021, student enrolment was 3840. We have a slight decrease in enrolment as last year at this time, we had 3904 students. Our enrolment over the year always seems to be fairly stable within our schools. 

Our schools have been a hub of activities this fall. It is great to have students participating in extracurricular activities. This fall, we have hosted many volleyball games and cross-country events. There have also been many virtual awards ceremonies hosted by our schools to celebrate student learning and achievement. 

Our schools have planned many student spirit activities this fall. It would not be a fall update without mentioning all the fun activities that were planned for Halloween. Our student leadership groups have really been creative with planning events to get our students involved in their school spirit activities. Please check out our schools’ social media accounts as they share many student activities.

We would like to thank all our BTPS families who continue to support us through the pandemic. It makes such a positive impact in our schools.
