French as a Second Language
The aim of this program is to give the student sufficient knowledge of the language so as to understand some of the everyday type of conversations in French. It may allow students who are keenly interested to pursue further language studies at a later date.

This program offers basic vocabulary for spoken and written Cree and cultural experiences to enhance the understanding of Canada’s Indigenous people. All students are invited to enroll.
We are using a computer software program called Renaissance Place at school. This program has a special feature called Renaissance Home Connect. It is a fun, easy-to-use, and easy-to-understand web-based interface that allows you and the teacher to share in the educational experience by viewing progress in certain Renaissance Place programs while outside of the school.
