Thursday January 26: Grade 10 Update

Good afternoon Patriot Families:

The Pearson staff would like to thank the many Grade 10 students who have taken advantage of the extra support provided these last eight days. Engaged learners have been rewarded with improvement in their understanding resulting in higher grades. Report cards will be released in one week.

On Thursday January 26, our Science and Math teachers will be attending a system meeting at Forest Lawn High School while many of our Grade 10 teachers will be on a field trip. Grade 10 students are welcome to come into Room 2166 (9:00 – 11:30 am). Ms. Hornby (Assistant Principal) will be available to supervise students. Our final day of extra support will be on Friday January 27th with teachers available from 9:00 – 11:30 am.

Semester two will begin on Wednesday February 1st with “Success Connect” from 8:45 – 8:55 am for new timetables.

 

Request from the 2017 Grad Committee: Pictures!

In 2015-16, Carman Lim (a member of the 2016 graduating class) spent countless hours generating a long term memory for her fellow grads. She posted the video to “You Tube” so you can share the memories with your family and friends: 2016 Lester B Pearson High School Graduation Video. Grad Committee members, led by Mohit Parmar, have begun collecting pictures for the 2017 video: http://goo.gl/photos/QB7bzYDPq8Sse2xy5 or 2017 Grad Video Collection of Pictures. Enjoy a study break and send along some of your favorite photos with Patriot friends. The Committee will strive to include every member of the 2017 graduating class. They need your photos to make this a reality…

Congratulations to Mr. Fraser: Head Football Coach of the Year!!!

CSHSAA Head Coach of the Year Award: Football

The Lester B. Pearson School Community would like to extend their congratulations to Mr. Morgan Fraser, our Athletic Director. Today he was recognized by the Calgary Senior High School Athletic Association (CSHSAA) with the “Gary Deman Award” as the “Head Coach of the Year” for our Senior Boys Football team. The team came bursting out into the playoffs scoring a number of upsets leading to a City Final appearance with the team finishing second in their division. Mr. Fraser’s leadership in bringing football back to LBP in 2015-16, after a long hiatus, resulted in a City Championship appearance in the team’s second season. Students and staff at Lester B. Pearson celebrate Mr. Fraser’s commitment to excellence in Patriot Athletics. Proud to be a Patriot!
