Living and Learning Together

Principal’s message

Welcome to Lester B. Pearson!

We want you to feel welcome at Lester B. Pearson Public School and to be active in your child’s learning.

Research shows that learning improves when parents work together with the school as partners in their child’s education.

Durham District School Board teachers and administrators strive to establish a school environment of mutual respect and co-operation.  You contribute to this positive environment when you:

  • drop off and pick up your child in the school’s designated area;
  • ensure your child understands and obeys bus safety and behaviour rules;
  • remain outside the school building at entry and dismissal times;
  • call for an appointment if you wish to meet with your child’s teacher, principal or other school personnel;
  • make your child’s teacher your first contact when you have educational concerns;
  • respect the confidentiality of information about all members of the school community.


You support your child in the lifelong learning process when you:

  • show your child that learning is interesting and fun;
  • help your child talk about his or her experiences and feelings at home and at school;
  • facilitate punctual and regular attendance
  • encourage your child to be independent and responsible at an early age;
  • provide a quiet, well lit place for your child to complete homework assignments;
  • help your child set  attainable daily, weekly and monthly goals;
  • ensure your child has a good sleep, a proper breakfast and healthy snacks
  • take time every day to talk with and listen to your child.
