International Languages Program - Grades 1-8

The Greater Essex County District School Board is pleased to offer our International Languages program for the 2021-22 school year. This year, International Languages classes will be offered virtually (online at home). This program is available to students in Grades 1-8 from across Windsor and Essex County.

Your child does not need a background in a particular language to be able to take advantage of this unique opportunity to acquire a second or third language.  International Languages classes will run on Saturdays from 9:30 am - 12:00 pm throughout the year, beginning in October.

Classes are offered based on student enrolment numbers. Any language may be offered for which there are 25 students and an available instructor. Languages potentially offered include:

 

Arabic       German       Gujarati      Hindi       Italian       Korean       Mandarin       Nepali       Persian        Punjabi     Serbian    Urdu         Tamil          Spanish

 

International Languages classes will be presented through Microsoft Teams and will require students to be able to access this online tool at home through an electronic device (computer, laptop, tablet) and access to the internet. As this is a complimentary program, technology will not be provided to families who are participating.

Please use the link below, or our webpage https://www.publicboard.ca/Programs/K-12/International-Languages to register for International Languages Classes this year. The registration deadline is Thursday, September 30, 2021

For any further inquiries about the program, please contact Mr. David Dawson, International Languages Principal at 519-255-3200, ext. 20203.

JACK MINER SCHOOL COUNCIL NOMINATIONS & ELECTION
IMPORTANT NOTICE
 
Dear Parents/Guardians:
 
Every school in Ontario has a School Council in order to ensure that the views and opinions of the school community are considered in making decisions about a wide variety of school functions and activities. The School Council acts in an advisory capacity to the Principal.

The School Council minimum membership will be six (6) parents/guardians, one (1) teacher, one (1) non-teaching staff member, one (1) community representative, one (1) student (optional in the elementary schools) and the Principal (with parents/guardians as a majority). The parent/guardian representatives will be elected by parents/guardians of students in the school.
 
School Council members are people of goodwill who have a special commitment to their local school. They bring commitment, enthusiasm, desire to make a difference, readiness to work with others, and a need to contribute in a meaningful way.
 
You may be interested in being a member of the School Council or perhaps you know of someone who has shown a willingness to volunteer and work in the best interest of our school and its students. If so, contact them and encourage them to get involved.
 
The School Council elections meeting will be held virtually using Teams.  The date of the first meeting will be Thursday, September 23, 2021 at 6:00 p.m.   Elections will be held at this time.
 
You can access the Jack Miner School Council Nomination Form by clicking on the following link.  Should you require a paper copy of the form, please contact Mrs. Adlam at the school.
