The 2018-2019 school year certainly flew by; it has been overwhelming to see the graduations and promotions of students that I met since their first school years at SJA. I have the biggest satisfaction to see that the majority of students seemed more confident and recognized their own improvements in the French language; for me this is an opportunity to thank parents for their support throughout the year and for the recognition they also gave for our dedication and hope to see their kids improving and getting ahead in the French language.

I want to wish everyone a nice and safe summer. Hoping that this season will be filled with bright sunshine, lots of laughs and relaxation.

              


Time certainly flies! Students have reached the last term of the year. They all will be reviewing different verbs tenses and forms of sentences taught during the year to expand their written and oral knowledge of French.

Grade 3 students will be focusing on "Le Média"; they will learn how pubilicity influences us and they will also enrich their vocabulary by naming different types of shows.

Grade 4 students will express themselves through poems and other forms of artistic expression such as drama. They will focus on creative writing by using rhymes and "acrostiques".
