Information For Families

Teachers at Balmoral School will be supporting students and families with high school registration in February 2022.

If your child is designated to attend either John G.

Transfers will only be considered for students who wish to attend a specialized program. Below are the special programs offered by each school, along with links to their information:

If your child is planning to enroll in a regular program, they will attend their designated high school, according to their address. In order to make the best choice for your child and family, please consult the school websites above. This is especially important for those students considering a specialized program, such as IB or AP.

Students at Lester B. Pearson High School and many other schools took part in @Moose_Hide Campaign on May 12. The nationwide event raises awareness for the #MMIWG and violence against women and children. Read more on our website: #WeAreCBE

RT @SASCBE: Our Grade 3/4s had a hands on experience building birds houses after learning about the importance of birds in Calgary. Birds are often seen as spiritual messengers who bridge the natural and spirit world in Indigenous cultures. @DClovis

RT @CJMCBE: Our Grade 5 students explored Weaselhead Flats today. We learned so much about wetlands, plants, and animals. We studied aquatic invertebrates and saw so many different birds. Thank you to our guide and to our parent volunteers 😃 #WeAreCBE

Today’s Board of Trustees public meeting starts at noon at the Ed Centre. Join us in-person or stream the meeting online #yycbe

There’s still time to donate to the Loonies for Literacy campaign. For every dollar a school raises, a dollar will go to a school in need through the generosity of community sponsors & contributions. #WeAreCBE
