Good evening parents,
The school year isn’t over for me (yet). I am still in school (SFU) but will be done at the end of July. Once the dust has settled, I will catch up and post all of the great pictures I have taken these past few months.
In the meantime, I have one favour to ask of you. If you happen to have a bit of time, could you please complete this survey? I am trying to understand what leads parents to enrol their child in French Immersion. This is connected with what I have been studying at SFU.
P.S. It is anonymous but there is a possibility I may be sharing the results during my final presentation at SFU.
P.P.S. Thank you for using a respectful tone when answering my questions.
You are invited to an Open House on Wednesday June 17, between 13:30 and 14:45. It will take place in our classroom. The students would like to share what they learned during Genius Hour and also some of the work they did during this term.
Many have told me that this was shared this with you at home but I am posting it here as well to ensure the message makes it your way.
We hope to see you there!
We had our first Genius Hour presentations on Friday and it went really well. I am extremely proud of how our first attempt turned out and can’t wait for more of it this coming week!
On Friday morning, just before recess, Ms. Anema’s class came by for a visit. The students were very proud to share their learning with them. As you probably know by know, the focus of my SFU inquiry is around community building. My goal is to facilitate and encourage more interactions between our French Immersion and English stream students. Over the course of the year, the students and I have been working hard at connecting with those around us. When Ms. Anema’s class presented their moon project to us last Monday, I immediately thought of returning them the favour and inviting them into our classroom to share what we have learned through our Genius Hour sessions. They were fantastic and our guests seemed like they really enjoyed themselves.
After recess, Jack and Caius took us outside where Jack demonstrated how to fly the plane he built and Caius taught everyone how to properly throw a ball. The feedback he gave was very supportive and each one of us learned a little something (including me!). After we came back inside Ilka also shared her last gymnastics adventures when she visited Québec. Everyone was impressed to see the ribbons she received for her various performances. Great work, Ilka! We are very proud of your latest accomplishments in Gatineau.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. See you tomorrow!
I just came across this on Facebook and wanted to share it with you.

If you’d like to know more about her and share her story with your child, this is her personal Facebook page.
Kids are so inspiring, aren’t they? (Yours is too… More about this in a separate post!)
