Board Games Drive and French Immersion News

Board Games Drive
The Kindergarten Board Games Club is in need of some board games to make it even more spectacular.  If you’re cleaning out your closets, or your children have outgrown their games, please think about donating any gently-used but complete board games.  A box will be placed outside the office where you can leave the games.  Requests include, Candy Land, Hungry Hippos, and Chutes and Ladders, but we’ll accept anything in good condition.

The Scrabble Club is also looking for gently-used Scrabble sets.  These can also be donated and left in the box by the office.

Exciting News for Earl Haig Kindergarten
Please see the message from the French Department below:
Earl Haig Public School is pleased to welcome an Early French Immersion program (SK entry) for September 2015.  The Toronto District School Board ensures equity of access to French Immersion programs by guaranteeing an offer of placement in the program to all on-time applicants.  This year, the number of applicants to the French Immersion program at Earl Beatty (where Earl Haig students have been directed in recent years) outnumbered the pupil places available at Early Beatty.  Working in conjunction with the Board’s Planning Department and French as a Second Language Department, and based on the number of French Immersion applicants from within Earl Haig itself, it was determined that our school become an Early French Immersion site beginning in September 2015.
All  on-time non-sibling applicants with an Earl Haig regular program address have been offered a place in this program.  As per policy, Earl Haig families with older siblings already attending French Immersion at Earl Beatty have been offered a place in Early Beatty’s French Immersion program.  We look forward to this new and exciting addition to our school.”

If you are interested in the SK french immersion program, you can still sign up at www.tdsb.on.ca/pars.  Please do so immediately.  Your application will be accepted as late, and your child’s name will be put on the waiting list. You will need your child’s OEN number which can be found on the original SK French application.  For any questions or concerns contact the TDSB or speak with Ms. Ellis or Ms. Shea.
