June 2019 – Our Final Three Weeks

​Dear Parents and Guardians of Peter Lougheed School: 

It is hard to believe that our school year is almost complete!  As we close out our first year, there is so much to celebrate and gives thanks for!  I am so very proud of all the students and staff for leaning into the work of opening our amazing school, the Home of the THUNDER!  We have had an extremely successful year.  I am so proud of all of our students and staff.  I would like to bring your attention to the following important items:

1. Paperless Report Cards

On Wednesday, June 26th, students will be finishing their last school day of this school year.  Their Term 2 Report Cards will be available in PowerSchool on that day.  

Report cards will no longer be printed instead, parents will be able to access and review their child's academic progress and grades online with the PowerSchool parent portal.

A MyCBE / PowerSchool parent account will allow you to access a number of supported technologies and tools at the Calgary Board of Education, including:

  • Access to your children's academic information (schedule, grades and attendance)
  • Register for transportation and noon supervision
  • Pay fees online and request waivers
  • Book school conferences

Parents/guardians who have not yet registered or are unsure how to access MyCBE/PowerSchool, on the main page and navigate to the MyCBE / PowerSchool icon to learn more about creating, accessing and using your account.

Use MyCBE/PowerSchool to Access Attendance and Assignment Information for Students

2. School Organization for 2019-20

Moving forward to next year, we are looking to have 30 homerooms with our Grade Classroom configuration being:

  • Grade 5 – 6 Homeroom Classes 
  • Grade 6 – 7 Homeroom Classes 
  • Grade 7 – 6 Homeroom Classes 
  • Grade 8 – 6 Homeroom Classes 
  • Grade 9 – 5 Homeroom Classes

This classroom configuration is based on our student projections for next year.  We are currently projected to have 880 students enrolled on our school in September.  If our enrollment is different (up or down), we may need to adjust accordingly in September.  


3. Home Alone Safety Course

The Calgary Bridge Foundation is offering a Home Alone Safety Course on Friday, June 21st.  This is a free course for students in Grade 5 & 6.  Registration forms went out in early June.  There is a limit of 20 students for registration.


4. Explore Option Courses

We will be having students finalize their explore option selections for next year in the next few weeks of June.  This is an opportunity for students to identify their top choices for explore courses.  We do our best to make sure students have at least of two of their top 4 choices.  


5. Big farewell to Mrs. Wagler

Finally, I wanted to inform you that we will be saying farewell to Mrs. Michelle Wagler, who is our school admin secretary here at Peter Lougheed School.  Mrs. Wagler has accepted a new position at Radisson Park School.  She will begin her new position on Monday, June 10th.   We are going to dearly miss Mrs. Wagler’s bright spirit, her laugh, and her dedication to all members of our community.  Please join me in wishing her all the best with her new position.   At this time, we are actively working through staffing processes to find a replacement for this position.  For the interim period in June, we will be welcoming back Mrs. Kathy McIntyre.  Mrs. McIntyre worked in our office as Admin Secretary when we opened the school in August of 2016.  She will be joining us on Wednesday, June 12th and will remain with us until the end of June.  

Wishing you all a safe, relaxing and family filled summer!!


Take care
Gord Choate​
