We are in need of a coach for the Grade 5 girls and people who can lend a hand setting up and taking down the nets as well as a referee for our home games. If you have the time to help with this very short soccer season, please contact Madame Laflamme ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org. SPEECH ARTS – SIGN UP NOW! With the nearing of spring comes the Speech Arts season. As with last year there will be two components to our school speech arts program – one in class and the other an extra curricular club. This extra curricular club is a great opportunity for those students who are looking for a challenge and to advance their public speaking skills. Participants of the club will be asked to attend coaching sessions during lunch time, where they will practice with their peers and receive helpful hints from our coaches who will address areas such as posture, eye-contact, pace and volume. Each participant will then ‘perform’ their piece for the coaches who will select a group of students to compete at the regional level with other students from our Catholic school system. If your child is interested please fill out the form attached to this newsletter and return it to his/her classroom teacher. Primary coaching sessions will be Wednesday, Thursday and Friday lunch hours. Intermediate coaching session will be Monday and Thursday lunch hours.
