Kindergarten Information Night – tonight!!

June 12, 2014

Tonight we will be having a Kindergarten Information Night for students that are starting JK in the fall, or students that are new to SK in the fall.

Our information night is from 6:30-7:30. We will meet in the library for about 10 minutes and then students and parents will have an opportunity to do some activities in our Kindergarten classrooms. Due to limited space, we would ask that only the parent(s) and kindergarten student attend.

We hope to see you tonight!

Carmen a la recre!

May 1, 2014

Today our Gr. 1-6 students had the opportunity to watch the show, “Carmen a la recre” (The Schoolyard Carmen). This musical opera dealt with the following themes; Being an Orphan, Being a New Immigrant to Canadian Society, Schoolyard bullying, and The Value of Independence. This bilingual performance was a great opportunity for our students to hear the French language in a dramatic setting.
