Dear Members and French Immersion Parents,
To members, I would like to once again thank-you for your support of Canadian Parents for French for French through your annual membership. Your membership fee allows us to put on some very successful events and experiences for our children and I truly hope to see this continue in the future.
As always we welcome new volunteers from board level, committee or on-off event help. And welcome you to visit at one of the monthly evening meeting, just check the web site for times and locations as we circulate around the French Immersion schools. You don’t need to speech French. Just bring your passion for French immersion and our kids. The time commitment depends on the position for example School Reps it’s about 4 hours per month. We are currently looking for School Reps for Maple Ridge Elementary and Pitt Meadows Secondary.
We are very proud to say that the Ridge Meadows Chapter is one of the most active CPF Chapters in BC & Yukon. In the past few years we have build a strong school network, a website, French summer camp and more.
We celebrate this year’s successes:
- French Film Fest
- French Summer Camp
- Parent Survival Night
- Community French Movie Night
- Running a booth at two of the winter Craft fairs
- Grade 12 scholarships at $500 each
- Grade 7 excellence awards
- Quebec field trip grants of $50 per student
- High School drama workshops
- CPF representation on the district FAC
Election of new members to our Board of directors for the next year must occur at our next Annual General Meeting (AGM). Our AGM will be held Wednesday, May 17th, 2017 from 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM at Laity View School in the library. Laity View school is located at 21023 123rd Ave, Maple Ridge.
I encourage you to become involved with CPF. As a group and with the support of provincial Branch, CPF can work with the school board to shape a French Immersion program that parents want. This is the time to become involved. Please feel free to contact me at anytime if you have any questions please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (604) 783-7862.
I hope to see many of you at our AGM, showing your support for CPF.
