On Friday, May 29, 2015, the Grade 2 class of Ms. Rego visited James Culnan Catholic Elementary and the Grade 2 class of Mlle. Renate, as students from both grade 2 classes have been corresponding as short-distance pen-pals and getting acquainted with another in the French language during the months of December, February and April with an exchange of 3 sets of letters from each class. Additionally, students participated in a special program put together by Famous People Players called “Going Bananas” that focuses on anti-bullying, acceptance and integration with ties to Virtues education. Students worked with their pen pals to communicate and discuss how puppets work under black light. Back at James Culnan, students had the time to engage in various team building activities (oral, arts, and crafts) in French to further the pen pal relationships.
