French websites

Bonjour Parents,

I would like to extend a huge “MERCI” for your continuous support of the French program at KMS. We have had a fun filled year learning French at all levels. At the request of some parents I have composed a list of websites that may be helpful for summer practice.

  1. Duolingo: This is a fantastic French website that allows students to advance at their own pace.  It works on vocabulary, grammar, listening and speaking (junior/ intermediate)
  2. Bescherelle: This is a tool that provides all verb conjugations (intermediate/senior)
  3. larousse.fr: This provides an online French dictionary, encyclopedia, games and cooking dictionary ( intermediate/senior)
  4. parlonsfrancais-  real life scenarios using French language (intermediate/advanced)
  5. www.digitaldialects.com: French games ( primary levels)
  6. www.french-games.net: French games( primary/ junior levels)
  7. Songs: Julie Powers-Bonjour comment ca va, Counting songs
  8. Gregg Le rock
  9. Any songs that review colours, numbers, sports, animals, food in French ( primary)

I wish you all a safe and happy summer holiday! Merci beaucoup et bonnes vacances!





MS T-Shirts still available!

As you know, the MS class has started selling t-shirts as part of our micro-economies class. Thank you to everyone who purchased a t-shirt – you should receive them around the 20th.

Please note we only have a few extra so first come first serve.
Thank you for supporting our program,

Many Hands Needed!!!

Our graduation tent is arriving on Tuesday and we are in need of parents and staff that can stay after school tomorrow to get it set up. We think it should only take about a half hour. Any help is highly appreciated, as we know many hands make light work!

Tip of the Week: Sunhats! With the increasing sunshine and even on cloudy days comes harmful UV rays. Please make sure to send a sunhat to school with your child every day and/or keeping an extra hat in their backpack is also a good idea.

Happy Weekend!
