Crescent Park Elementary School Expansion

The Board of Education of School District No. 59 (Peace River South) received approval from the Ministry of Education and Child Care for a major capital project that supports a five-class room expansion for Crescent Park Elementary School. 

The Ministry has awarded the expansion as part of a pilot project that will utilize sustainable and energy-efficient designs. The Ministry's investment in this project totals $7.5 million. 

This is exciting news for Crescent Park families. Crescent Park Elementary School Parent Advisory Council President and Vice President, Kaitlin Sevier and Lisa Meeres stated, “We are thrilled to hear of the expansion to our school! Crescent Park is located in a unique location with being on the edge of a new development area - which means many new families with elementary aged children. We have seen Crescent Park’s student population growing over the years. We are looking forward to being a part of the pilot project and seeing the final results!”

Changes to Communicating Student Learning

Report cards are changing this year to align with the curriculum and to help ensure that every student in the province is set up for success in their learning.  You may remember getting a letter grade or percentage at the end of a chapter in your textbook or after a test, signalling to you that learning had come to an end. Today we know that learning doesn’t stop when students hand in an assignment or complete a test. That’s why students in Kindergarten to Grade 9 will receive marks on a four-point proficiency scale, instead of receiving letter grades starting this school year. Students in Grades 10-12 will still receive a letter grade and percentage to support their entry into post-secondary education. Report cards for all students will now also include self-reflection and goal setting, as well as descriptive feedback.

These changes mean that report cards may not look the same as when you were in school or may look different from what you received for your child last year. However, you can trust that the information you will receive will provide a complete picture of what your child can do, where they need to improve, and how you can support their learning.

The following video outlines the changes to communication student learning and the new reporting order.  You can learn more about the changes on the Ministry of Education and Child Care’s website by going to
