The French team at Carrville Mills has been discussing the many ways that we can bring a greater appreciation of French culture to Carrville Mills. An important part of French-Canadian culture in Canada is the Carnaval d’Hiver à Québec, which takes place each year in Quebec City. To pay homage to this wonderful cultural celebration, we will be creating once again our own mini Carnaval at CMPS!
We will kick things off this week with a week-long game of Bingo. The first class in each division (primary, junior, intermediate) to get one straight line, and notify the office, will win a hot-chocolate party!
As well, classrooms JK-Grade 8 are also invited to compete in our friendly Carnaval door decorating contest. The winning class from each division will also win a hot-chocolate party!
Weather permitting, the week will culminate with an outdoor winter Carnaval on Friday, February 16th. The Carnaval will take place from 1:40 pm – 3:00 pm. The Grade 8s will manage the activities and lead teams of students in Grade 4-7 through the circuit of stations.
Please remember that on Friday, February 16th, students in Grade 4-8 will need to come dressed with all their winter clothing (e.g., hat, gloves, snowpants, boots, jackets) as they will be spending the afternoon outdoors.
We are very excited to be bringing Carnaval to Carrville Mills for the second year in a row! We look forward to a fun-filled day of French culture!
