The Good Food Box

Late last school year, Lester B Pearson High School asked the city to be a North East Calgary distribution point (Hub) for the Calgary Good Food Box.
This year we have been granted that privilege. The Good Food Box is a program under the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary whereby you can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at amazing costs.. The more people that join in the program the greater our buying power becomes. They offer ALL Calgarians access to nutritious food to ensure no one goes hungry. The Fruit and Vegetable boxes are put together and delivered to your closest location (Hub) once a month.

As the Pearson Hub continues to grow, we invite the community, your staff and students to participate and join us using program.

Pearson Portraits!

Pearson Portrait Pearson Portrait 2 Pearson Portrait 3

Hi folks!

If I have learned one thing about Pearson in my few days here so far, it is that this is a “big place” with lots happening. I would like to start something called “Pearson Portraits” to celebrate the many activities and events that happen in the building. I started with Pearson Moments but I think Pearson Portraits sounds better. Send me photos and a few words and I would be glad to send them out. Here is the first official, “Pearson Portrait”!!

The Senior Boys lost a heartbreaker last night in a fifth game of a very competitive semi-final match against St. Mary’s. Our boys fought hard and played some very inspired offense and some outstanding defence. They were disappointed with the outcome but they can hold their heads up high as they played with spirit and sportsmanship. They represented Pearson with Pride. Thanks to Coach Scherban and his coaching staff and trainers and the senior boys for an amazing season.!!!

Thanks to Cody Longlitz for helping organize and drive the Fan Bus. Over 50 cheering Patriots. Thanks to the many staff who attended,too.

Monty and my ears are still ringing!!!
