Skating during the first recess time has begun on Tuesdays and Thursdays for students in grades 2-6. If your child is interested in skating and doesn't own equipment, the school has skates and helmets that s/he can borrow. Students need to be able to do up their own skates in order to be able to participate. We still need volunteers. If you would like to help out, please send a note to Mrs. Riou, grade 6 teacher.

Dear Parents and Guardians:
Briargreen staff welcomes both returning students and families new to our school, to what will be another rewarding year of learning. The course work at all grade levels follows guidelines found in The Ontario Curriculum. http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/curriculum/elementary/ We strive to link this work to ‘real life’ or ‘authentic’ learning opportunities to make learning as relevant and meaningful as possible. We are committed to providing a challenging and exciting learning environment to all students at our school.
Briargreen Public School offers a regular English program to students in Junior Kindergarten through Grade 6. The school community encompasses the following communities within the City of Ottawa, Ontario: Briargreen, Forest Ridge, Graham Park, Qualicum, Centrepointe, Cedarhill and Orchard Estates.
In the partnership that we work to maintain between school and home, we recognize our responsibility to keep you informed of what is happening at our school. The school handbook outlines some of the main features of our program as well as some of the more general routines in the operation of the school. We hope that you will find the information useful and recommend that you discuss appropriate items with your daughter or son. In addition, you may want to review the behaviour expectations we have for all students at Briargreen.
If, at any time, you have questions, which the handbook does not address, please feel free to call your child’s teacher or the school office (613-828-5027) or drop in to the school office to see us about your concerns.
Leslie McLeod, Principal
