Dear Students and Parents,
It is with great excitement that I ask you to SAVE THE DATES!
Friday June 17 at 10:30 for our Book Launch
Thursday June 23 at 12:00 for our French Plays
So, should you try to come to one, the other, neither or both? Up to you! Here is some more information to help you understand what will be happening at these two events:
This year, sixteen of my French students participated in a voluntary national story writing contest. The students who participated in this enrichment project, either as writers or illustrators, are:
Each team of four did a phenomenal job, writing and illustrating a 20-page French story and amazingly, one of our teams won the national competition! However, ALL the stories were so fabulous, that I decided to publish the other three stories with the OCDSB Print Services Department.
So… you are invited to celebrate with us! Parents, siblings, grandparents, etc… all are welcome!
(All authors and illustrators will receive two complimentary copies of their published book. I will have more information available about how to purchase additional copies on June 17, for those interested.)
All students in grade 5/6 will be performing the play, Chat Angora. Two of the four groups will be performing « live » versions on June 23. Between performances, the entire class will be singing songs and/or doing other small group presentations. The other two groups have opted to video their plays instead of performing live. So long as I have all the necessary permission forms, I will share these videoed versions with parents via my blog.
The students who will be performing their play « live » on June 23 are:
Of course, substitutions may occur, but this is the plan as it stands!
So, come and join us to celebrate another year of French learning. I am really so proud of how far these students have come!
Hope to see you soon,
Joëlle / Madame Rudick
