Krista Gallant Receives the CPF PEI Educator of the Year Award

Canadian Parents for French PEI, a branch of a National network of volunteers, which promotes and creates opportunities for Canadian youth to learn and use French as a second language, has announced the winner of its Educator of the Year Award for the past year. The award is presented annually to a person who has shown exceptional support and dedication to the quality and availability of French language programs in PEI schools. This year’s recipient is Krista Gallant, a French Immersion teacher at Sherwood School, Charlottetown.

A fellow teacher wrote: “On a personal level, Krista is a passionate advocate for her students. She will do everything in her power to ensure that all her students are getting the help they need, by spending time during her recess and after-school tutoring them, applying for grants to increase the help she receives in class, and by always planning interesting and engaging lesson plans for her classroom.”

From a parent “Krista is one of those special teachers who students love because she is kind, loving, fun and caring. She finds a way to develop a special connection with all her students and helps them achieve to the best of their abilities in and out of the classroom.”

For these comments and more CPF, PEI was happy to present Krista’s award to a full gymnasium of student, parents, and teachers on March 16th. Jordan Brown, Minister of Education, Early Learning and Culture helped make the presentation. Krista is a testament to the excellence of educators who are nominated for this award but also a testament to Krista’s continued impact on the students, staff, and parents she comes into contact with. As part of the award, Krista received a banner for her classroom, a trophy, a gift card and an allowance to support learning in her classroom.

Welcome to Kindergarten for 2018

The Welcome to Kindergarten Program helps prepare pre-Kindergarten children for a positive start to their school journey.  Each student will participate in educational activities with school staff and their parents during the session.  All 37 Public School Board schools with Kindergarten classes organize a Welcome to Kindergarten Program for their incoming Kindergarten students.  For a complete list of the dates and times for this year’s Welcome to Kindergarten sessions please visit our Welcome to Kindergarten page.

If you have a child who is eligible to start kindergarten in September 2018 and that child has not yet been registered, you are encouraged to register with the school your child will attend as soon as possible. This will help ensure you have an opportunity to take advantage of the school’s orientation process and resources available to parents of kindergarten-age children.
