May 2011

May is a month to celebrate new beginnings! Little Isabelle, in the Tots at Play class, is a big sister. Welcome to her baby brother!

Our new director, Paulette Ove, came onboard at the start of the month. She rolled up her sleeves, and put together final requirements for licensing. The week after Paulette joined us, we were awarded our State Child Center License. Thanks to the parent volunteers and to the staff for all your hard work to accomplish this goal.

The Fête des Mamans celebration (Mother's Day) was well attended by parents, grandparents and extended family. The children performed for smiling parents, and following the performance they presented their mothers with a hand-made gift. Afterwards, we shared a delicious luncheon of items contributed by parents and teachers. Give us an excuse for a celebration, and we will oblige!

A parent survey went out in mid-May to query the interest in children's enrichment classes. As the International Enrichment Center, dba French For Fun, we would like to offer children's enrichment classes following the immersion language program. These classes will be available for children who seem developmentally ready for a longer school day and who are at least 3.5 years old. Stop by the office if you are interested in participating in the survey.

We are pleased to announce that two of our former Immersion students were accepted in French 4/5 as freshmen at Campolindo High School in Moraga. Feeling a bit intimidated by the seniors, they declined and will settle for French 3.

All of our middle school students will enroll in language programs at their schools -- either in Spanish or in French 2. We are pleased that all of these students will continue at French for Fun after school in September.

French For Fun is not planning a trip to France this year, yet we have a number of programs planned for all our students. More details coming soon.
