French Immersion in Eldorado School

French Immersion in Drayton Valley

WRSD is happy to announce that we have met the first hurdle to starting a French immersion program in Drayton Valley. We had enough interest expressed to explore this further and will begin the next steps. We are beginning the process of recruiting an appropriate teacher for the position. We will also begin taking registrations for the program, which will be housed at Eldorado Elementary School. If things go well, we would begin by offering a grade 1 program, to be followed by a grade 2 program in the following year.

We are asking parents who are interested, to register their child at Eldorado School by the end of March. However, as we cannot guarantee that we will receive adequate numbers or hire a teacher, we ask that you also register in a regular program, indicating that you have also tentatively registered them in the French immersion program at Eldorado.

If we have not received enough registrations by April 13, we will not start the program and will let all registered families know.
