​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 to 6, students may be assigned homework at the discretion of the teacher, and in general will be of the reading or study type. Providing a quiet environment at home for students to work on assignments and enjoy leisure reading will help students achieve success.

RT @mustardseedyyc: Today @CrescentCowboys student Alex and his friends came by The Mustard Seed with bags full of @McDonaldsCanada sandwiches to hand out to those experiencing homelessness!
