Spanish, Student Teachers, and Student-Led Conferences

Earlier this week, I stopped by a grade 4 Spanish class to visit some former ECE students. Senor Andres Barilla-Costa, our elementary Spanish teacher, had his guitar out and was leading a song. The students were spellbound! Some of them were accompanying him on drums, and they were reading new vocabulary as they sang along. It was so nice to see them so deeply engaged in the beginning stages of their third language at CFIS!

A Message from Student Services

Did you know that routines are an essential part of student learning and success? As teachers have been creating and monitoring new routines for their students, parents can do the same. For some students (and most certainly, adults too) transitions can be stressful. Stress can prevent students from learning or enjoying their learning environment. Routines are one way to ease the transition back to school.

Art workshop, fall field trips, and printing practice

As part of our programming, each preschool and junior kindergarten class has a scheduled art workshop time, once every 6 weeks, where they travel up to the “big kids” art room to learn from one of our specialist teachers. This week, Mme Abi’s JK class had the first art workshop of the year, and were delighted to create beautiful, collaborative, multi-coloured silhouettes. You can see these on display outside the classroom!
