​Regular Program at the CBE

Even though most of our schools offer a regular program, no two are quite the same. All schools teach according to Alberta Education’s mandated curriculum, however a school’s focus, optional courses and school activities are as unique as every school.​​​

Homework

Parental interest in a child’s schoolwork is one key to success. Parents are encouraged to discuss with their children the daily school activities and to review together any assignments brought home. As a rule, homework assignments in Grades 1 and 2 tend to be informal in nature and may include daily reading, the rehearsal of basic facts or the completion of unfinished class work. In Grades 3, 4, 5 and 6 students will be expected to complete all unfinished schoolwork at home. Providing a quiet environment at home for students to work on assignments and enjoy leisure reading will help students achieve success. If students are using the internet at home to complete school work, they are encouraged to use the Learn Alberta website.

Connaught Community Outdoor Learning Space

The Connaught Community Outdoor Learning Space incorporates learning in Math, Science, Literacy, Environment Stewardship, Physical Education, Personal Development and much more.

Our students now have access to a tangible learning space that allows them to plan, plant explore, inquire, experiment and reap the fruits of their labor. It has been exciting to see the space full of students!

The five regions of Alberta have been incorporated and their natural shrubs and plants from the Rocky Mt, Grasslands, Bow River and Foothills regions are represented.

​Exploring Career Choices

For Grades 5 to 9 at the CBE, we offer Career & Technology Foundations (CTF). This is an inquiry-based, hands-on program that focuses on essential skills common to occupational areas, and our students personalize their learning based on their interests and passions.​​​

Over the course of the 2019-20 school year, we will continue to have conversations with students, parents, and staff to learn from their experiences and to seek their input and suggestions for improvement https://t.co/1dxVU6AFky #yycbe
