As of 7:00 am this morning, students and families no longer have digital access to their timetable. This is a CBE city wide decision with Student Services teams across Calgary generating timetable changes to balance classes and make adjustments based on success in summer school. Digital access to timetables will take place again on Tuesday September 6th. Thank-you for your patience and understanding.

Parent Council has very few resources and there are always needs in the school community. We would greatly appreciate your support to help us enhance learning and activities. Some uses for the funds collected could be: updating the theatre sound system, staff appreciation, supporting school clubs and assisting students in need. Thank you for your support.
Parent Council Fee – $10.00 for the year (this is optional and can be paid with the students’ school fees)

The Calgary Academy of Chefs and Cooks recognizes one chef each year who has demonstrated a long-term commitment towards promoting the Association or publicizing this chosen profession locally and/or nationally, involvement in Academy or Nationally-sanctioned functions, and participation in culinary salons or other public demonstrations.
Chef Martin has been teaching for three years at Lester B. Pearson High School. With the support of his kitchen staff and students, over 250 homemade meals are made each week as part of the Foods and Culinary programs. In addition to feeding the members of this learning community, it is not rare to see Chef Martin involved in cooking outside of the classroom. This year, he catered the Better Together Partnership Breakfast, the Cinderella Project, and the March Board of Trustees meeting in support of work that students are involved in with Career and Technology Studies (CTS).
Pat Thalheimer, Principal of Lester B. Pearson is also very proud of Chef Martin. “Martin is an excellent teacher and role model, both in terms of his culinary experience and the way he lives his life!”
On behalf of the staff and students at Lester B. Pearson High School, and the Calgary Board of Education, congratulations Chef Martin!
