Language Programs

French Immersion

This program involves not only the study of the French language, but also instruction is delivered in French in other subject areas. This program is intended to allow students to become capable of having a working knowledge of the French language. Students registering in this program will spend a minimum of 80% in grade 6 and a minimum of 70% in grades 7 - 9 studying in French.

 

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.

 

Native Studies

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.

 

Accelerated Reader

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.

 

                   You can view Renaissance Home Connect from any computer with an Internet                              connection using these browsers:
