Daily reading is so important, especially in late French immersion

Students should be reading in French for 20 minutes each night. At least five of those minutes should be out loud to a parent.

If you notice that your child hasn’t been reading in French each night, here are some ways that you can assist your child:

  • set up a family reading time where everyone sits together and reads their own book or takes turns reading to each other
  • take your child to the public library and assist them (or ask the librarian to assist them) with finding a French book that they are interested in and that is at their reading level
  • set up a reward (e.g. for each 200 minutes of reading, the child can purchase a new book)
  • create a special reading space in your house (can be as simple as some pillows in a corner or an old bed sheet to make a fort)
  • encourage your child to choose any type of text and any genre as long as it is in French (e.g. magazines, comic books, picture books, novels, fiction, non fiction, etc.)

Student Intake Meetings

Hi parents,

We are trying to update the meeting times for division two, but there seems to be a glitch. It should be fixed this weekend, but the times are now:

Tuesday, September 19, 2-3pm (2:45 is still available)

Thursday, September 21, 3-6pm (all times are still available)


Keep checking the online appointment site throughout the weekend. If it is not fixed by Monday, we will resort to having you register through this blog. If that ends up being the case, I will make another post listing the details.


Have a wonderful weekend and I look forward to seeing you next week!
