Village Square Leisure Centre

Are you interested in a service project where you can use your artistic skills? We are looking for some students to help us come up with ideas to paint some flower containers at Village Square. This would be about a 6 hour project and all supplies will be provided (you will be deciding on images and doing the painting). This is a great way to get involved and give back to the community. For more information and to sign up please contact Carmen Marquez at cmarquez@gcalgary.ca or call/text 403-669-8627.

April Report Cards on Home Logic + Summer School

Dear Patriot Families:

Please log into Home Logic to view your child’s current report card because interim grades were posted today.  You are encouraged to discuss your child’s self-reflections with them (found in their Learning Strategies course) as they develop life long learning strategies.   If you would prefer a printed copy of the report card, please have your child come to the Main Office and we will gladly print one on your behalf.  Should you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teachers.

Beginning Monday May 1st, your child can also start signing up for CBE’s Summer School that runs from July 4 – 28, 2017.  Given one day of class at summer school (8:15 am – 12:50 pm) represents a week of instruction, it is essential for students to be available for the entire time frame.  Last year, 5,000 CBE students chose to participate in five locations:  Lester B. Pearson, Forest Lawn, Centennial, Sir Winston Churchill and Viscount Bennett.  There were 700 students at LBP from various high schools.   Some courses and locations fill very quickly!  Please make an appointment with Mr. Colvin or Ms. Olsen in Student Services soon given High School students currently attending a high school in the Calgary area must have a Prerequisite Information Form (PIF) signed by their high school counsellor.  Please see the website  for full details on:

  • Course Information:  What is offered?
  • How to enroll and fees
  • Campuses – locations of sites
  • Academic Advising
  • Student Support
  • Frequently Asked Questions

On behalf of our staff, we thank-you for the active role you play in supporting your child’s pursuit of excellence.  We look forward to hearing from you!

 

Science Fair – Congratulations!!

We want to share the good news; the Science Fair went well for our two students. Zainab Osman earned Silver and Daniel Asimiakwini earned Honorable Mention.  Both students represented Pearson well, took pride in their hard work, and complimented the work of students around them.  Couldn’t ask for more.

Attention Students – taking courses at other educational institutions

It has come to our attention recently that there are a growing number of Pearson students who are taking courses with other educational institutions outside of the CBE.   Examples of these institutions are Alberta Distance Learning Commission (ADLC), and Hope Christian School.

If you are one of these students, or know someone who is, please be aware of the following expectations:

 

  1. If a student is taking a grade 12 (30 level) course with an institution such as those above and they want to write their final exams for those courses as Pearson, those students will need to come to the main office ASAP to inform the office of your intentions so that we can discover how many extra spaces we will need to accommodate the demand.

 

There is a limit to the number of students that we can have writing exams at Pearson based on the number of actual seats that we have in the examination rooms, and the number of supervisors that we have. We also need to ensure that Alberta Education sends us enough exams to cover the number of students who will be here on exam day to write the exams.

 

  1. Students taking courses at these institutions also need to know that you are not permitted to use Pearson resources such as textbooks while registered in courses at other institutions. There are barely enough resources and textbooks for students at Pearson, that we can’t justify loaning out textbooks to students not in courses at our school.

 

  1. There have also been students who have been enrolled in classes at an outside institution as well as at Pearson. As the semester progresses, some students are withdrawing from their course at Pearson and then continuing to sit in the classroom at Pearson with their teachers. Teachers are not permitted to allow you to sit in their classes if you are not on their attendance list. Teachers cannot be made responsible for students not on their attendance list.
