​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.​​​

Agendas – The Daily Communication Tool

Students from Grades 1-6 will be provided with agendas. By signing the agenda each night and reminding your child to return it each morning to their teacher, parents will ensure that agendas:
  • Act as a communication device between the home and the school.
  • Help students organize their work to be completed for homework.
  • Encourage students to plan ahead for school activities.

Replacement cost for lost agendas is $6.

Brightspace D2L

Division 2 (Grades 4,5,6) students also use D2L as an online organization and communication tool for students and parents. Students can use their username and password to log onto D2L at school and at home. 

Homework

All students from Grade 1 through Grade 6 are strongly encouraged to read daily at home. Parents are encouraged to provide a home environment that facilitates school related and leisure reading and homework. The following is a guideline for home study times:

  • Grades 1-3: up to 15 minutes (reading, practicing number facts)
  • Grades 4-6: up to 30 minutes

Students in Grades 4, 5 and 6 may regularly have some tasks to do at night. If your child seems to have an excessive amount of homework, please discuss this with his or her classroom teacher. Please note when work is assigned, every attempt should be made to complete it. 

The students should be provided with a quiet study place. If a student misses a number of days due to illness, vacation, etc., we would recommend that you discuss the missed work with the teacher(s).

Student Services

Personnel are available to consult with parents and teachers regarding students who have exceptional needs. When a child is in need of specialized services, a referral can be made by the teacher to our Student Learning Team. Meetings are then arranged to provide consultation and recommendations regarding strategies, interventions and possible services and support. This information will be used to develop an appropriate plan or program that promotes success for the child as a learner.

The members of the Student Learning team may include the following:

  • Principal
  • Assistant Principal
  • Student Services Specialist
  • Parent(s) – The parents of the child
  • Classroom Teacher
  • Educational Assistant

If appropriate, the following people may be involved in a Learning Team Meeting:

  • Speech & Language Therapist
  • Psychologist
  • Student Services Specialist/ or other specialists

​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.​​​

We are seeking input from our families, students and staff about what we should consider in our planning for school re-entry for the 2020-2021 school year. We will be collecting feedback until June 11 https://t.co/X3YzfNH5ZK #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/xpHFZLEc3H

CBE playgrounds remain closed. We will begin re-opening on Monday, June 1. Openings will continue throughout next week. Once the yellow tape has been removed and signs say the playground is open, the equipment can be used according to health guidelines. #yycbe #WeAreCBE #yyc https://t.co/zBid3GNq26
