Students Building School Pride
Lord Beaverbrook students care for and desire to make our school and our community a better place to be. Students Building School Pride is a Prezi (presentation tool) that shows how our students are building school pride through voice, leadership, community influence, and staying connected. If you are a current student (or future student) and want to get involved in an activity, club or initiative, have a look! The Prezi will show you what opportunities exist, what each club does, where they meet and highlights some of the activities for each club throughout the year.

High School Registration
The Calgary Board of Education has published a new High School Course Registration Guide. The guide comes in two forms: a long guide and short guide. Both are available on the CBE website. Information specific to Lord Beaverbrook High School, programs, courses and student learning opportunities can be found on this site. Currently, grade 9, grade 1o and 11 students are being supported through on-line course registration. Our target for completion of registration is the end of March 2015.
Opportunities at Lord Beaverbrook High School
Increasingly throughout our school year students will be able to access additional supports, seek out learning and leadership opportunities, and provide their voice to our school. Through a partnership with the United Way of Calgary and the “All in for Youth” Initiative, students have increasing access to tutoring, scholarships, personal supports, mentors, and special presentations. Through a generous donation from the Fraternal Order of Eagles, our school has launched a “Sports Development Initiative.” There are two parts to this initiative: Athletic Subsidy and Participation in Sport Development Camps. We will continue to recognize our students for their accomplishments in our school and the school community through the “Caught Ya” awards and in the spring of 2015, recognize student achievement, effort through “Do Your Best!” Students should be looking for more information regarding these exciting opportunities on this site, the daily bulletin and on our television monitors around the school.
The Final Word
To all of our students, remember – do your best!
Continued success to all of our students in semester two.
Go Lords! Be fiercely proud!
Jim Simpson, Principal
