Classes & Departments

We believe in the strength of relationship between a student and their teacher. At Peter Lougheed, each student is enrolled into a homeroom. Their homeroom teacher is an important advocate and go-to adult for students while in middle school. Their homeroom teacher will also be one of their CORE teachers. Each student will have two CORE teachers. CORE classes involve the instruction of Math & Science and Humanities (English Language Arts and Social Studies). 

In addition to these courses, each student will have approximately one hour of physical education instruction each day. To complete their day, students will be provided opportunities in Explore Courses, which include; Music, Fine Arts and Career Technology Foundations. Our school year is divided into two terms. Over the course of a school year, each student will have the same two CORE teachers and physical education teachers, but will also have opportunity to work and learn with several explore instructors. Our instructional day allows for students to have large blocks of dedicated time to their CORE subjects. We operate with a rotating Day 1, Day 2 schedule, which allows for students to have dedicated time for their Explore Courses.  

We believe in ongoing communication between school and home. Parents are partners in supporting their child to having success at school. We use a comprehensive approach to communicating with parents and students. Teachers share assignments, resources, program updates, assessments and individual progress on key assignments throughout the school year.

RT @yyCBEdu: Earlier today we shared an update with CBE families with some important system information https://t.co/I4ROzvbQ3E #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/QYcLZRzma2

RT @UsihChristopher: Important: Anyone who has been directed to isolate by AHS must not return to school or their workplace during their isolation period. It is also important that if you’ve had a COVID-19 test, you must not return to school until you get your results, even if you are feeling better.

Wishing all our @PLougheedCBE families a Diwali that brings happiness, prosperity, and joy! https://t.co/6VE8YG3EyU

RT @yyCBEdu: A new daily COVID-19 symptoms checklist for children under 18 goes into effect on Monday, November 2. Please make sure to review the new checklist to determine if your child is able to go to school and if you need a COVID-19 test https://t.co/8bPGQxIDHl #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/GMtFtxKXPj

RT @UsihChristopher: There are a number of CBE & Alberta Health resources available to help families understand what they’re required to do if their child is sick – when you must isolate, when to be tested, how long you must stay home and when you can go back to school. For info, visit CBE website.

RT @UsihChristopher: Proud of the way the entire CBE community has come together to support the ongoing learning &wellbeing of our students. As the weather starts to become colder, it’ll be more important than ever for everyone to be mindful of the health regulations & to stay home if feeling unwell.
