Back to School Tips for Young Children

For our youngest students, the start of a new school year is an exciting adventure! One that is full of hope and excitement, but not completely free from the occasional twist and turn. Here are a few things you can do to help ensure your little one is well-prepared and supported in these first, important days of the new school year:

●      Have your child’s vision checked prior to starting school, and if necessary, help them adjust to glasses before school begins.

Bike rodeo, office visitors, and summer reading

Pedal Heads at Calgary French & International SchoolOur kindergarten students all brought their bikes and helmets to school on Tuesday, and participated in the Pedalheads bike rodeo safety program here in our schoolyard. While this program always requires some careful logistics, it is such a rich experience for the students.

Junior kindergarten concert, Grade 6 celebration, and going barefoot

Concert season, Graduation Day, and year-end anxiety

CFIS Graduation 2018Spring concert season is upon us, and this week I had the pleasure of attending the grades 3-6 concert as well as our preschool performance. The “big kids” always impress me with their poise, focus, and skill with their instruments, and it was a true pleasure to see our tiniest students so clearly enjoying their own performance opportunity.
