Dear Parents and Guardians:

This year, in honour of Catholic Education Week, May 7th to May 11th, we will be holding events to celebrate student achievement in the arts and honour the love of reading.

Catholic Education Week celebrates the significant contribution that Catholic Education has made to the community, the province and to Canada. Our Catholic Graduate Expectations challenge students to articulate in society those fundamental values that underpin Catholic education. The theme for this year’s Catholic Education Week is, Catholic Education: Renewing the Promise/Renouveler la promesse.

Student Art Exhibition, May 10th-11th: Educators and students have worked together to create, select, and display pieces for public presentation.  You are invited to this exhibition on Thursday, May 10th, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m and Friday, May 11th, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. as the exhibit will be open to students, staff, and the community.

Student Talent Show Grades 4-8, May 11th: Educators and students have worked together to curate and prepare a variety of acts that showcase the artistic and physical talents of our student body. Students will be attending this presentation at 1:00 pm Friday, May 11th. Parents are welcome to join as well.

Scholastic Book Fair, May 10th-11th: As in the past, the book fair will provide families the opportunity to peruse new releases, check out favourite series’, and scoop up all of the latest reading accessories. The bookfair will run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Thursday, May 10th and 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m Friday, May 11th. Feel free to stop by.

School Bus Safety  

According to Transport Canada, “School buses are the safest form of transportation for children. Children are many times safer riding a bus than any other form of transportation to school.” This is a result of Provincial legislation and regulation, vehicle design & construction, fleet inspections, maintenance practices, mandated operational policies/ procedures and driver qualifications and training.

The Canada Safety Council also states, “It is 16 times safer than travelling in a family car per passenger/kilometer of travel.” School bus related injuries, which are very rare, are far more likely to occur outside the school bus as students are boarding/leaving the bus or crossing the street.

CLASS takes student safety seriously and offers numerous programs and initiatives to support our students and promote school bus safety.  Please click HERE to view their programs and initiatives.

Welcome to Kindergarten 

 

SO YOU HAVE DECIDED TO ENROL YOUR CHILD IN A FRENCH IMMERSION PROGRAM AND YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT YOUR CHILD AT HOME.  

​​​Parents play an important role in their child’s education.  Take time each day to talk to your child about his/her learning experiences.  Use positive encouraging words when speaking to your child.  Providing a caring and nurturing environment that invites children to share their experiences will boost your child’s confidence and enable him/her to feel secure, loved and accepted for their talents and unique gifts.

Things you can do at home to support your child’s French language learning

  • include some French in your everyday home life, for example, watching a French program on television, a video, attending a cultural event in French or listening to a tape of French songs. (You’ll learn some French too, and the whole family will have fun!)
  • review the French vocabulary of the week or month with your child
  • listen to, repeat, recite, sing along with your child as he shares his latest French song, rhyme or story.

Things you can do at home to encourage your child to be more self-sufficient

  • encourage your child to make decisions by offering him choices
  • encourage your child to take responsibility for some tasks
  • provide opportunities for your child to practise buttoning, doing zippers, drawing, cutting, blowing nose and tying shoelaces

Things you can do at home to promote your child’s good health to be more self-sufficient

  • ensure plenty of rest, with early bedtimes
  • ensure that your child eats a variety of nutritious foods from all the food groups
  • encourage your child to walk, stretch, hop, jump, run dance or skip, both indoors and outdoors

Include your child in everyday activities to practise new skills and explore new concepts

  • baking—have your child help to measure ingredients  
  • walking—encourage your child to observe his environment and to develop an active lifestyle
  • shopping—point out the names of stores, gas stations, businesses, restaurants and schools; notice traffic signs
  • gardening—give the child a small section to plant and care for
  • writing—include a note from your child in letters to family; have the child write telephone messages and lists
  • cleaning and tidying up—help the child sort toys into categories: cars, blocks, dishes, puzzles.

What Else Could I Do At Home?

  • Read, read and read some more!
  • Discuss the pictures and the story after you have read.
  • Track the print—left to right—top to bottom.
  • Provide a good role model. Read and write at home yourself.
  • Teach your child rhymes, emphasizing similarities and differences in sounds.
  • Model proper speech.
  • Count with your child.
  • Make sets with the numbers from 1 to 5.
  • Help your child print his/her name.
  • Make patterns with construction paper, beads etc.
  • Play with the alphabet letter tiles, magnetic letters etc.
  • Build alphabet trains together.
  • Play with puzzles.
  • Encourage your child’s successes.
  • Sing Songs


Tips For Reading:   Adapted from “Yes, You Can Help”.

The most important foundation for reading is established before your child goes to school. There is nothing more important that you can do for your child than to establish a love of books and an appreciation of the written word. Expose your child to English and French reading material as often as possible. Use a variety of genres (i.e. newspapers, comic books, fiction, and non-fiction). Discuss content with your child and encourage verbal feedback. Model reading to show that books can be a form of entertainment as well as a source of information. Libraries and Book Clubs are an excellent source for obtaining quality reading material. Parents can assist their child in learning how to locate information and resources which will support his/her learning.
