We haven't had a French class since before the Christmas concert so let's get an update:

 You should have prepared by now, a mini presentation introducing us to famous music stars from the decade assigned to you in December. Be prepared to discuss a popular male singer, female singer and a well known music group or band from the decade. Mention a few big hits from each of theses musicians. See you tomorrow.

Thanks to all students for doing such a fantastic job with the Christmas concert. Parents and friends were so impressed with all performances. Once again you have made me so proud.  Special thanks to all members of the elementary and middle school Christmas drama club for putting in the time after school and noon times to work on our Christmas musical. I hope all of the grade 8 students stay involved in drama and music at JMH. 

Elementary drama will resume practice on Tuesday January 9th. Enjoy a well deserved holiday.

Thanks to the grade 4 & 5 elementary students who participated in the music class challenge this year. Thanks to Parker, MacKenzie, Kathleen and Chloe (who was unfortunately absent due to illness for the final taping) for learning the metallophone parts. We will perform this song for parents at a concert later this year so all of the instrumentalists can show their stuff!  Our video is now uploaded onto youtube. Once on youtube click on CBC and type in Nelson Rural Both Sides Now and you will see and hear our performance.

Thanks to all students for your efforts at our annual Remembrance Day ceremony. Behaviour was excellent and all readers and singers did a fantastic job. I know our veterans were proud to be honored by the students and community members. Thanks to our Grade 8 students: Kate, Madison, Skylar, Jesse and Rebecca for your participation. We will miss your presence next year. Also thanks to our grade 7 students; Shaye, Avery, Mackenzie, Evan, Logan and Kayley for your participation. Hope to see you back next year. Thanks to miss Isabella Silver for singing a solo with the student chorus.  It was such a beautiful and touching moment to hear you sing for our veterans and your own father who is himself, a veteran of the wars in Afghanistan. Best of luck to your family as you move to Nova Scotia. Amelia, Isabella and Olivia;  we will miss you, dearly.

Bonjour les élèves: Just an update on what is expected of you in the next week.

8e- You should be working away at your fashion projects. Select pics on the internet or magazines of outfits you wish to present for your decade. We can put these on the smart document camera for classmates to view- another option is to create a power point presentation. Please remember however, we only have one more lab period to prepare.

7e- You are also putting finishing touches on your presentation of une phénomème étrange. Written work should be completed by next class in order that you and your partner(s) have time to rehearse the presentation. I will begin listening to these next week so get moving on this please.

Grade 8 you will have your final music test tomorrow. It will be your choice to play the test piece on the keyboard or the guitar; whichever instrument allows you to give your best performance.

Have a safe and Happy Halloween. À Demain.

Bonjour mes élèves. Once again please refer to homework assignment for this past weekend. We did not get to this today so you have until Thursday now to conduct an interview with a parent/grandparent/aunt/uncle about fashion styles worn in their day. Have fun with this. See you Thursday. Have a good evening. Bonne soirée!

Bonjour mes élèves. Here is the next assignment required for the next few classes:  Interview a parent or grandparent, aunt or uncle etc. and ask them to describe the clothing and footwear they wore when they were your age. Ask them if any brands of clothing or shoes were popular and to name them. More specifically have them describe clothing worn for the following:

- a typical outfit for school

- a typical weekend outfit

- a typical outfit worn when playing sports

- a typical outfit for a special event like a school dance

If you wish to add anything else to this list please feel free to do so. This is not homework for tomorrow but I would like it done for Monday's french class. Perhaps you could interview them on the weekend?  Have fun with this and I look forward to seeing the results. See you tomorrow. à demain.
