At the French School, we understand the need for open communication between staff and parents and we offer a variety of ways for parents to become involved in their child’s learning. Below are some ways parents can become involved in their child’s journey of learning a new language:
French Classes for Parents
Embark on a French journey along with your child. We encourage non-French speaking parents to take classes at the French Institute of the North Shore to join their children in learning French. The opportunity to practice vocabulary and pronunciation with your child is mutually beneficial, reinforcing learning and improving retention. Classes are conveniently scheduled in the mornings, afternoons, evenings and weekends for a wide range of opportunities. Learn more about the French Institute of the North Shore.
Cercle des Parents
Through our parent association, Le Cercle des Parents (Circle of Parents), we invite all parents to come together and organize fun activities and events for the entire school. Parent are encouraged to participate and bring ideas.
At the beginning of the school year, parents from all classes are encouraged to volunteer as a room parent. Room parents assist administration and teachers in coordinating special school celebrations and projects.
