BONJOUR NOS PARENTS!    C’est enfin la rentrée!  It’s is finally “Back to School!”

We are very happy to have started this school year with all of our students in class this year and not on Zoom! This is the first of our monthly French Newsletters. The contents of each Newsletter will give you a general idea of what we will be teaching in class.

You will receive these letters electronically and they will also be posted on your child’s French Schoology page. Our goals are Proficiency and Communication. This approach encourages the use of the target language during all classroom activities.

In Grade 7 our students will be learning about Faisons connaissance, introducing themselves and greeting others in French. Students will learn how to express how they feel, talk about their age, and state things and activities that they like or dislike. They will learn the alphabet, numbers to 20, and salutations.

In Grade 8 our students will be learning activity/pastime vocabulary: Sports et Passetemps:  how to describe what sports and activities they like to do, invite others to join them, and accept or turn down invitations to do activities. Students will be able to express opinions about other students’ activities. Students will be able to use the irregular verb faire and review the conjugation of first conjugation verbs that end in er.

We appreciate your support in encouraging your child to practice and to use the language whenever possible. We wish you a happy school year! Please note that Curriculum Nights are 9/29 for Gr 8 and 9/30 for Gr 7 in Oak Auditorium at 6:30- 8 PM.
