Here are some fun things happening this week at West Kent to help celebrate our French culture:

Student volunteers will announce each morning two new French words and a fun fact to the school.

Throughout the week, students will go on a search of French flags throughout the school with their classes.  Details will be discussed in each class Monday by their homeroom teacher.

Monday: Just Dance in French in the gym for grades K-2 at little recess.

Wednesday: Dress in Acadian/French colours day. Wear Red, White, Blue and Yellow to show your school spirit!

Thursday: Decorate your classroom door contest!  There will be judges who will decide which classroom door best represents the theme of Francophony (French-speaking communities) on this day.

Friday: Just Dance in French at little recess for grades 3-6 and Bingo in your classrooms over the announcements at 2pm.
