Principal's Message

Welcome Back!

This is the end of our second day with students.  I must tell you how impressed I am with your children.   Our school has been extremely busy preparing for opening our new school year.  Since our office opened last week, we have faced a high volume of new student registrations.  I have several items that I would like to bring to your attention:
Peter Lougheed Open House
We are hosting an Open House to Peter Lougheed students and parents on Thursday, Sept. 19th (5pm to 8pm).  Please mark that date in your calendar.  This is a great opportunity for you to meet your child’s teachers and learn about their year ahead at Peter Lougheed School.
Student Enrollment and Classroom Organization
Our student enrollment as of today sits at approximately 960 students.  The distribution of students and classrooms per grade is:

We are still following up with a few families to whom we understand may have moved over the summer, but are confident in our position that our student enrollment will remain significantly above our spring projections of 880.  Last week, when we saw enrollment increasing, we made the decision to add one additional Grade 8 class so that our total number of homerooms in our school is now 31.  The creation of an additional classroom has required us to make some re-arrangements to our Learning Commons space.  We now have a Grade 8 homeroom housed in the classroom that used to be our computer lab.  Our computer lab is now in our learning commons.  
Our school was originally outfitted to house 950 students when it opened in the fall of 2016.  While growth is always a ‘good’ problem to have, we understand that it will require us to respond in ways that will result in change to how we use and experience the building with students. We are up for this challenge as a school community!!  This increase will require all of us (students, parents and staff) to be community minded as we share the physical building we call Peter Lougheed School, but also our learning resources, and our public spaces in and around our school within the Saddleridge community. 
We will be monitoring our enrollment closely as we move into September and may adjust our organization again if warranted.   If you are new to our school, or need to read up on our programs, expectations, etc..  please take some time to learn more about our school by spending some time at our school website.
Looking forward to working with you this year as partners in your child’s public education! Sincerely,
Mr. Choate, Principal 
Mr. Parent, Assistant Principal
