NEWS FROM THE FRENCH CORNER

Grade 9 French students were able to have their rough copy edited, and their checklist items marked off. Make sure that you follow the rubric with all the instructions.
Also, students received their review package for the exam, and they started working on it. If you have questions about the package, next week's classes will be about review only.
