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.
