​Provincial Achievement Tests (PATs) are part of a balanced, broad-based program of student assessment for Grades 6 and 9 students. The results provide some of the information that guides our educators as they set targets for student achievement and track the results of school improvement initiatives. Visit the CBE website for more information on our students’ provincial testing​.

Provincial Achievement Tests Cancelled

​Due to the continued disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the CBE will not be administering Grade 6 and 9 Provincial Achievement Tests in the 2020-21 school year. We believe this is the right decision in a year where direction from Alberta Education and Alberta Health continues to evolve rapidly. 

Teachers will remain focused on delivering the programs of study for all courses, and will continue to assess student achievement based on the grade level outcomes as determined by the Province of Alberta.​​​​​​​

Our Grade 5 and 6 students created an encouragement and affirmation bulletin board for the students and staff. https://t.co/rvDg7keais

Our grade 1 & 2 Ss took on a leadership role and decorated the school tree. Was I ever surprised by their creativity! Who doesn’t love a giant peach as a tree topper? https://t.co/VcmGM1m22q
