French-Second-Language (FSL) Education Week!
The Honourable Gordon Wyant, Minister of Education, has officially proclaimed February 4-8 FSL Education Week.
Get involved! Canadian Parents for French invites you to join the FSL Education Week Challenge!
Plan a French activity, big or small, in your school.
- Hold a “Reading Buddies” activity – get older students to read to the younger grades;
- Create posters to individualize the theme for each student;
- Play interactive games;
- Watch a movie;
- Have students report if they have interacted with their parent(s)/guardian(s) in French outside of school; and/or,
- Develop your own school’s activity.
Participating schools will be entered into a draw to receive a grant to be used for a French cultural activity at your school. To qualify for the draw, a school must inform CPF-SK about the number of activities, the type of activities and the student engagement numbers (approximate percentage of student participation) for the week. Grant amounts are as follows:
- 1st Place – $500
- 2nd Place – $250
- 3rd Place – $100
Also, collect your school’s stories and photos. Sent them to CPF-SK at firstname.lastname@example.org to be included in a Special Feature Communiqué to be provided to all FSL schools and CPF-SK Members.
Have fun! And, remember to Learn French… feed your brain!
