Parking and Traffic Concerns and Intruders in the School

Please be aware that visitor parking is reserved for visitors to the school such as parents coming for a meeting or to pay fees. It is not meant for students to use. You may be ticketed and towed if you are found to be parking in visitor parking inappropriately.

 

We are also concerned about the number of intruders we found in the school over Exam Break, and the dangers associated with dropping students off at the side of the school next to the Leisure Center. We had a student hit by a car there in the Fall. As a result of these 2 issues, we will be locking the side doors to the school. This will prevent intruders from accessing the school without going through the front doors where they are visible. We would like to ask parents to drop off students in the parking lot for the shopping center, at the far end of the shopping center or  in front of the school where there is not the same high volume of traffic.

Monday and Thursdays – Doors will be locked at 9am – then unlocked from 12 – 1pm – then locked again

Fridays – Doors will be locked at 9am for the rest of the day

 

Thanks for your cooperation.

 

 

Junior Achievement – Thursday Night Group

Every Thursday night, a group of 30 students mostly from Lester B Pearson and Crescent Heights, get together with Business leaders of the community to create and Entrepreneurial business. This year they created a product called Visus, and the company name is Perspective.

Visus is a Virtual reality head set that can be used with your cell phone, the company designed the product in a few well known designs such as Ninja Turtles, Batman, and Iron man.

This year our team has been very lucky on top of getting retweeted by 2 of the Dragon Den Dragons, we also got a chance to show our product off directly to the Mayor of Calgary.

Below you will see a picture of our President and a vice president of the company, meeting and showing off our product (Ironman) with Mayor Nenshi.

As This year’s Junior Achievement company program is winding down we all look forward to seeing how well our team does against the other Junior Achievement teams at the Celebration Of Achievement in March.
