​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

Parents are encouraged to discuss their child’s daily school activities and to review together completed work or
assignments. Student work and goal setting are available for viewing and sharing with parents on IRIS, the CBE student self-reflective assessment program.

In Grades K-3, a daily home reading program is encouraged by all classroom teachers. Teachers might also assign Mathletics, Raz Kids or Tumblebooks work, or other activities. Homework for students in these grades will be 20 minutes or less. 

Healthy Active Learners

All children in grades 1-3 participate in daily Physical Education to promote a healthy, active lifestyle.
Cranston School offers a Swimming Program based at City of Calgary-operated pool for all children, Kindergarten – Grade 3. Students in grades 1 – 3 participate in daily Physical Education led by our Phys Ed specialist.
