Calgary Transit Rebate Program

Families at our school may be eligible to participate in the CBE’s Calgary Transit Pass Rebate Program for the 2017-18 school year.

An email was sent on Thursday, Nov. 16 to parents/guardians of eligible students with a link to the online rebate portal. If families do not have an email address on file at their school or if they have not subscribed to receive commercial emails​ they will receive a paper registration by mail. This process will take up to two to three weeks to complete. If you did not receive an email or letter by Dec. 11, 2017, and believe your child is eligible for a rebate, eligibility will be addressed after this date.

Families can begin to submit their passes for rebate on Friday, Dec. 1, 2017.

Visit www.cbe.ab.ca/transitrebate for more information on things such as eligibility, rebate amounts, how to register and how to submit a monthly pass.

 

 

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!!!

Ken Chee – Principal
