Math and Literacy Including French Immersion (Grades 6-8)

Improve math, literacy and/or french language skills while having fun!

This summer program is designed for current Grade 6, 7 and 8 students who would benefit from additional practice and assistance with math, literacy and/or french immersion.  Health and Wellness and fun activities will be incorporated into each program. Students are eligible to register for either Session 1 or Session 2 or both.  This program is non-credit.

Here's what students had to say about the program:

“I loved it! I learned so much about Algebra, Geometry and Everything! I also had lots of fun just being with other people” while another student in the literacy program said that “it really improved my language over the course of these 2 weeks”.

Registration for 2023 

Principal and teacher recommendations are requested for these programs; however, parents may initiate an application.

Students are eligible to register for no more than one summer school program at a time (i.e. a student cannot register for the Math Program and Literacy Program at the same time, but they are eligible for both.  The dates must not overlap). 

Registration will be available until June 23, 2023 at 12:00 p.m.

Students can initially be engaged in reading by focusing on their comprehension and enjoyment of a given story, poem, blog, or news report.  Fundamentally, balanced literacy revolves around two primary strands, a reading strand and a writing strand, each of which mirrors the other.  Engaging lessons will be provided to ensure all students' needs and learning styles are met.

French Immersion (Literacy) - Virtual

Time: 8:30 am - 1:30 pm

To support French Immersion students, a focus on oral communication skills will provide a strong foundation for developing reading and writing skills. Students will be provided with opportunities to engage in speaking and listening activities as well as, reading and writing tasks in order to build their literacy skills.
