Early Introduction Survey
In partnership with School District 5 Trustee and President, Frank Lento, AFRoS is asking all Fernie parents with an interest in the education offered at Isabella Dicken Elementary School to please respond to our survey: School District 5 - Southeast Kootenay: Implement French Early Introduction Curriculum Grades 1-3
to give input to School District 5 on the idea of Early Introduction of French. Not quite Early Immersion, Early Introduction gives children short periods throughout the day where they can experience French and playing around with sounds in another language, which has been proven to enhance overall language skills. This is an idea being explored at the School District level for IDES starting in the 2014-15 year for grades K-3.
