Open house held at École St.-Jean Baptiste

 École St.-Jean Baptiste opened its doors last week to show to prospective students what the French-Catholic elementary school has to offer.

Principal Diane Bala was pleased with how last Thursday evening’s event turned out.

“It went amazing,” said Bala. “It was busy.”

New students were exposed to different activities around the Fryer St. school, she pointed out. Families got to see programing relating to STEAM classes, with STEAM standing for science, technology, engineering, arts and music.

Activities were also held in literacy and math and in the school’s gymnasium.

Students received a chance to see what the entire school has to offer and what skills could be obtained, she stated.

“We have so many new families,” said Bala. “It was a full house.”

Approximately 23 families attended last Thursday night’s open house alone, Bala pointed out.

“Parents had a chance to visit different environments,” said Bala.

Part of the open house involved getting “passports” where children and families could get stickers put in them as they went around the elementary school.
