RBC Canada #Make150Count

To celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary RBC is inspiring thousands of young Canadians to make a difference in their communities. We are challenging them to do something great with $150, no strings attached. Through generosity, creativity and commitment to their community they are using it to #Make150Count.

This program is an authentic way for us to demonstrate our belief in young Canadians, and that when we invest in youth, great things happen. We will create positive impact in communities across the nations by deepening connections and relevance with local youth. This also provides us with the opportunity for mass Canadians to celebrate a movement with RBC, while celebrating our country’s 150th anniversary.

We are looking for an individual aged 16 – 25 that may already be making a difference. Someone potentially that provides time to volunteer within the community, maybe a church group, maybe even at the high school. We would be asking for them to share their idea and their progress and would love to see creativity and variety, but there are no expectations or restrictions, just looking for someone to do something positive. We would encourage the individual to also share what’s happening through social media

Any students that are interested please see Mr. Thalheimer in the Main Office.


AWAKE Student Conference

Hello Lester B.Pearson High School,

My name is Sadia Ahmed and I am the Co-president of the Red Cross Club at the University of Calgary. I am also a former graduate of Lester B. Pearson High School. On behalf of the University of Calgary Humanitarian Alliance, a collaboration of student clubs at the University of Calgary, I would like to formally invite you to attend and participate in the first ever “Awake: Open Your Eyes” conference on November 19th 2016 from 9:00AM to 3:00PM. The conference will be held at the University of Calgary Health Sciences Centre. We were wondering if you would be able to promote this student conference to your students.

The purpose of this conference is to educate, engage and explore topics surrounding sustainable development for university and high school students in the Calgary area while uniting students together to make a positive change for both people and the planet. The conference is modelled after the Sustainable Development Goals put forth by the United Nations Development Program. The Sustainable Development Goals, otherwise known as the Global Goals are defined as “a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.” Students will get the chance to attend sessions targeted to Clean Water & Sanitation, Poverty Alleviation, Sustainable Cities & Communities, Good Health & Well Being, Global Inequalities and Gender Equalities. It will be a fantastic opportunity for students to challenge themselves as socially conscious young adults, as they learn more about improving life in a sustainable way for future generations and expand their contacts through networking.

Registration is just $10 for the day, which includes 4 sessions, a keynote presentation, and lunch. To find out more about Awake 2016 and to register, please visit www.uofcawake.com. Please note that registration for the conference closes on November 16th, 2016. We look forward to having you join us! You may contact me anytime for more information by email at ucredcrossclub@gmail.com

Kind Regards,

Sadia Ahmed

Co-president, University of Calgary Red Cross Club

“Success Support” Zones at LBP

Good Evening Patriot Families:

Last week your child was familiarized with the “Success Support” periods that begin tomorrow. On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10:05 – 10:50 am, your child has the opportunity to self select their learning opportunity.

The philosophy of the program is contained in Alberta Education’s “High School Redesign” aimed to improve high school completion rates across the province: Moving Forward With High School Re-Design

At Lester B. Pearson High School, we have created “Success Connect” utilizing a three credit learning strategies course. Our homeroom teachers are leading the learning every Wednesday in a mandatory course for all of our students. Ask you child what they have engaged in so far.

An extension of “Success Connect” is “Success Support”. Grade 10 students must be with their ELA, Science, Math or Social Studies teacher. Grade 11 and 12 students have more flexibility having the option to select where they want to spend their time.
