The annual Elementary Christmas Concert is scheduled to be on Tuesday morning, December 18, 2012. If we have a weather day on Monday or Tuesday, the concert will be on Wednesday.
This year the concert will be in the cafeteria of the school. We will be doing the entire concert twice on that morning in an effort to accommodate people. The first sitting will be at 8:45 AM and the second sitting which is a repeat of the first concert, will be at 10:15 AM. Please choose the time that is most convenient for you!!
We know that young people are the future of our two official languages. The website www.2tongues.ca has been developed to promote those two official languages, while recognizing the challenges. Last year, the site underwent a radical transformation, and you are invited to rediscover it.

How do you get your child to eat in the mornings?
1. Serve realistic portions.
Children’s stomachs are smaller than ours.
If there is too much food offered at breakfast it will be difficult for them to finish. Serve smaller nutritious meals and snacks throughout day.
One serving from a food group can be divided up. For example, half a Food Guide Serving of Meat and Alternatives can be served at two different meals such as one egg at lunch and half a chicken breast (1 oz) for dinner.
