French Immersion Information
École Traditions Elementary School is a dual-track elementary school, offering programming for students from Kindergarten to Grade 5 . For the 2019-2020 school year, we will be offering French Immersion for Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2, increasing by one grade per year subsequently.
Our mandate is for all students to find success in authentic, engaging programming in both French and English streams. We are committed to a language-rich learning environment both inside and outside of the classroom and welcome parents as partners in student learning.
Please contact Mrs. Olson at the school with any questions.
Bienvenue and Welcome Back to École Traditions. We are so excited to have grown our French program this year. We now have 2 Kindergarten classes with teacher Mme. McDonald, 2 Grade 1 classes with teachers Mme. Martel and new to our school Mme. Salud, and we have one grade 2 class with new to our school Mme. Gartner. Mme. Stratton continues to help us as our French Support teacher. As we come to the end of our first few weeks of school, we are so proud of all of our students and look forward to sharing all of our learning with families throughout the year. Here are some of the things happening in our French Immersion classes this month:
Maternelle ( Kindergarten)
Our Kindergarten friends were fortunate to have home visits with Mme. McDonald earlier this month, as well as “soft start” days before all students joined us for their first days. Everyone is busy getting to know the school and new friends, and are learning some new French words.
Premiére Année( Grade 1)
Our grade ones have jumped right into the learning and fun. They are working on making patterns, singing songs and expanding their French vocabulary.
Deuxiéme Année ( Grade 2)
Our grade two class has had a wonderful start to the year. They have been patterning and writing in French in our school and are working on continuing their reading and writing skills.
