French Immersion / English Selection-Gr. K, 2, 5
This message is being sent to parents/guardians of all grade K, grade 2 and grade 5 (English) students. Please note the attachments included with this email will be sent home with your child next week.

Information Nights, regarding program selection (English or French Immersion) for September 2017, will be held at various locations beginning next week - you will see the schedule and location of these meetings in one of the attached documents.

All parents will be asked to register students later this month for either the French Immersion Program or the English Program for Grades 1, 3 and 6. Note: Late French Immersion is not offered at Queen Elizabeth School. Students entering Late Immersion in grade 6 will be bussed from Queen E to Birchmount School for that program.

You will need to register your child in either English or French - so if they are in English this year and you decide they will continue in English, you will still be required to complete a registration form online.

The registrations will be done electronically through a link on the Anglophone East web site. This link will be provided to you next week. There will be no paper registration forms at the school. If a parent does not have access to a computer, they will be asked to contact Cindy Mitton (506-364-4785) to complete the registration. Collect calls will be accepted.

This email is basically a "heads up" message to alert you to the information in the enclosed documents and make you aware that more information will be arriving home with your child next week. Stay tuned and have a great night!
