Skills Competition at Longfield-Davidson Heights
January 30th
24 of our intermediate students have been invited to come represent our school at the Preliminary Skills Competition at Longfield-Davidson Heights in Barrhaven.  We are in need of parent drivers as there are no buses available for the times we need.  Forms have been sent home if your child has been selected.

High School Registration (January 24th)
Tomorrow, we will be selecting the courses for high school.  Once that is done we will send home a copy for parents to sign and return to school as soon as possible.  We will then send them to each high school.  Changes can be made to these choices up until the first week of school in September.

Dear parents, 

I am very happy to be teaching your children this year and I think we will have a good time learning about a ton of different things.

On this site you will find most of the things we do in class, including videos and handouts.  You will also find the due dates for assignments in the calendar as well as expectations and Rubrics in the Assignment tab.  Take a look often as we will update it as we go.  Some links will no longer be active and they will be replaced, or deleted, as we go. 

School supplies needed for your child:

12 pencils, 2 erasers (preferably white), 1 metric ruler, 1 pair of scissors, 2 glue sticks, a roll of scotch tape, 10 ballpoint pens (mix of blue, black and red), 1 package of coloured pencils, 2 packages of 3-hole lined refill paper, 1 package of coloured markers, 1 calculator, 1 geometry set, 5 highlighters (at least 3 different colors), 2 binders (English subjects in one and French subjects in the other) and binder dividers for each.



FRENCH LISTENING ACTIVITIES: The one thing you can always have your child do is watch television in French.  Ideally, I would like them to watch things which are a little challenging to increase their vocabulary and take them outside their comfort zone.  You can check the Useful Links tab on this website for ideas. TV5 Monde has a section with interactive activities that students can do on their own.  It is perfect for students who find listening to French difficult or want to reach a higher level in that skill.  In grade 8, students should be able to do most activities at the B1 level. (http://apprendre.tv5monde.com/fr/niveaux/b1-intermediaire)

FRENCH READING ACTIVITIES: If you have an iPad at home you can download LaPresse which is a French newspaper from Montreal.  They have very interesting articles as well as special sections on currents affairs, sports, the arts and many more.  It is a good way to read in French in a very interactive way and it is FREE!

Important dates:
September 25th: School Picture Day    **N.B: Do NOT wear Green
September 28th: Meet the Teacher and School BBQ

Literacy and Numeracy Tutoring after school:


Things coming up or in progress

French: Reading a novel of our choice.  

QSP Fundraiser (codes to come)

You will find French Magazines on pages 44 and 45 of QSP.  It is always a good idea to subscribe to a magazine in order to have varied French texts to read at home.  I have a classroom subscritpion to Curium which is the older kids' Les Debrouillard. It is a great science magazine.
