Bonjour! I could not be more excited to be teaching this course again at Carihi this year! I LOVE Science 9!
I would really appreciate it if you could:
Learning is a partnership between me, your child, and yourself. I encourage you to communicate with me regularly in person, by phone or by email. To make this year as successful as possible, please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you out! Parents: you know your children best so please inform me if you are aware of anything I could do to enhance your child's experience in my class.
I will be communicating regularly through email to all parents this year as well as through my website. I am also going to be using "Parent Connect" to track complete and incomplete assignments. Please make sure you can log in and access your child's information and that your personal contact information is correct. If these digital communications are not an option for you, I will arrange to send the information home with your child.
Materials needed for this course:
This is a French Immersion course. Although use of French is not directly incorporated into their letter grade, speaking French in class is important for student's success in this class. By regularly using new vocabulary, concepts are better understood and recollection of ideas is more natural. When a French Immersion student speaks in English, it is more likely that other students will respond in English and thus it effects the whole class. Use of French will be reflected in the student's work habits mark.
I am available for extra help most days before and after school as well as during breaks. Please encourage your child to come in at anytime or make a special arrangement.
