An information meeting will be held on Thursday, April 11th 2019 at 7:00 p.m. in Miss Jellison’s IF classroom to discuss the innovative and exciting Intensive French program we wish to offer to our Grade Five students during the 2019/2020 school year. In order to keep registration process fair, we will be handing out registration forms at the parent meeting. This class fills up quickly on a first-come-first-served basis, so if you wish your child to be enrolled in Intensive French it is imperative that the registration form is returned to school as quickly as possible. This year’s Grade Five Intensive French students will continue to be supported in their French learning during their Grade 6 year 2020/2021 through a modified timetable

Accountability Pillar Surveys were mailed out to all Grade 4 families last month.
Please consider taking the time to complete these surveys and send them back in to Alberta Learning.

We will highlight special initiatives and highlight how we strive to support students. Surveys will be available in Tagalog and English for Grade 4 parents only. Your time and care in completing these surveys is appreciated and helps us enhance the work we are doing.
