International and Indigenous Languages Elementary Program 2021-22 Registration Form
The International and Indigenous Languages Elementary Program (IILE) has been offered for over 20 years with the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board. Learning two languages is the best tool to help children do better in school. Studies also show that children with two or more languages, are more likely to develop their brain better; have stronger bonds with parents; have better communication skills and be better prepared for school. Studies also show that children are better at reading and writing; are more creative; have a sharper memory; are better at solving problems; have a chance to make more friends and find better jobs later in life.
WHO: Students in grades JK - Grade 8 (open to children in all school boards). Late registrations and ongoing registrations throughout the year are always welcome!
WHEN: Saturdays, 9 - 11:30 am, October 2, 2021 to April 30, 2022
