We will be holding our first meeting of the year to start planning for Quebec 2015 this week. Our current grade 6 students will be invited in 2015, when they are in grade 7, to participate in an exchange program with another school in Quebec. During the exchange students will spend one week in Quebec with a host family in February and then host a student at their own home from Quebec in May. This exchange is a valuable opportunity for all the children to enrich their learning and understanding of the french language as well as the french culture. As with everything there are expenses associated with the Quebec trip. To minimize these expenses the grade 6 families at Lord Tennyson organise a variety of fundraising activities and events to reduce the cost.
This Wednesday, September 11th at 7pm, in the library at school, we will be holding a meeting for all grade 6 families to discuss the upcoming fundraising year. We hope all grade 6 families at Tennyson can attend this event to find out more about Quebec, their role and how they can help with fundraising. Everyone participating in the Quebec exchange must participate in the fundraising too.
Quebec 2015 first event for the year will be hosting the "Welcome Back BBQ" on Thursday September 26th and so we need to start planning. If you are unable to attend the meeting for any reason please email Kyle Beauliv at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday night.
