Volunteers providing support for reading in French : Again this year, Montérégie West Community Network (MWCN) members, Ms. Pauline Wiedow and Ms. Suzanna Langevin joined by Mr. George Bujold came twice a week to St.Willibrord’s grade 5 classes to help the students with second language reading. All benefited from individualized instruction, particularly the struggling readers. With Pauline, Suzanna and George’s invaluable help, their reading levels went up and their desire to read soared! Not an easy task when it comes to reading in French. Reading opens doors and makes you dream… A huge thank you to our outstanding partners!
Fun-filled summer for the campers: Several years running, Camp Crossroads opened its doors and was at full capacity this summer, delivering its services to over 130 campers from the Chateauguay region! Campers participated in literacy, team building and sport activities from June 27-August 12 at St.Willibrord School. Campers had age appropriate novels to read following up with literacy packages. They went on two exciting outings (Funtropolis & Sailor for the day at the Old Port) and took part in two in camp activities (Laser tag & Bouge Au Max). Weekly cooking activities and homemade lunches were also given to them.
Thank you to all of the parents and community members for another great successful summer!
Coop Determination Jeunesse
Youth at work : Carrefour Jeunesse hosted for another year its youth Coop. Fifteen (15) dynamic and motivated teenagers (14-17) worked hard during the summer. Students were able to do basic landscaping, pool maintenance, household cleaning, babysitting and much more.
The Coop from Careefour Jeunesse allows students to get some work experience while making some money.
