This spring the Provincial Government introduced Bill 1 – An Act to Reduce School Fees. This new bill will have an impact on school and transportation fees across the province.
For the 2017-18 school year, the CBE Instructional Supplies and Materials fees will no longer be charged. Optional courses, educational enhancements, programs of choice, travel, and extra-curricular activities will still have associated fees.
The CBE fee schedule has been sent to Alberta Education for review and approval. We expect to have more information about fees and waivers later in the summer. We are committed to making that information available to our families as soon as it is available. Payment arrangement deadline will be the end of October.
Thank you for your understanding and patience with the different process this year.

Please join the Pearson community in congratulating Hussain Al Abaichi who was recognized as this past week’s CTV Athlete of the Week. We are very proud of Hussain (a member of the 2016 and 2017 LBP UNITED BB team), his mentor Simar (member of the 2017 Sr. Boys BB City Championship Team) and Mr. Fraser (coach for both young men).
Dr. Gordon Higgins was instrumental in providing “seed” money in 2008 for us to run the Pearson Finance Club. Thanks to him and other donors the club has been in operation for 9 years straight.
Dr. Higgins shared with the club that Exchange Traded Funds(EFTs) is the best investment vehicle to park our “hard earned” money because it requires low maintenance and it’s low cost. this strategy has been proven quite effective in the past 40 years when it was first introduced by John Bogle. Research has shown that “passive” investments beats funds that are actively managed.
Congratulations to our students who made us extremely proud at U of C’s SET Challenge yesterday. The students placed 2, 20 & 26 out of 42 teams!!
