TOUR DE QUEBEC 2016 ORGANIZATIONAL MEETING SET FOR JUNE 17TH

An organizational meeting for Tour De Quebec 2016 will be held June 17 at 7:00 p.m.  This trip is for current grade 7 Paul Rowe and Grade 6 Manning Elementary School students.  The purpose of the trip is to provide interested students in an educational field trip to further explore the social studies and French curriculum taught in Jr. High, and experience the French Canadian culture in our country.  Paul Rowe Students travelled to Quebec in May of 2012 and 2014 and French teacher, Ms. Katie Thornton reported a greater interest and enthusiasm for the French language and culture shown by students that participated in the trip.  By all reports the trip was hugely educational and interesting for students and supervisors.  The trip is scheduled for the May long weekend (May 19 – 23) in 2016.  Because of the long weekend, the students will only miss one day of school and the trip will not interfere with any Grade 9 PATs.

This will be an organizational meeting and committment pledges and downpayments will be accepted.  Payment plans are available and parents will receive funds back based on the amount of fundraising that is done by the group.
