On behalf of the Lester B. Pearson School Board I would like to welcome you to Birchwood’s web site. Please feel free to communicate with us through the “contact us” button if you have any questions.
Our Birchwood “team” is a dynamic group of teaching professionals and support staff dedicated to helping our students become lifelong learners and responsible and cooperative individuals. Our aim is to help students reach their full potential in a rich, stimulating, and safe environment. We value collaboration with parents as it is key to the educational success of our students and also to the success of our school.
Birchwood is equipped with a library, a computer lab with interactive boards in all homeroom classrooms, a cafeteria/polyvalent area, a drama studio, an art room, a resource room, as well as a full size gymnasium and playgrounds that have fun and challenging apparatus’. The school offers daycare services which also includes a lunch program.
The academic program offered at Birchwood is “Français Plus”, which is a program that provides the same percentage of French instruction as the “Early French Immersion” program but continues until the end of Cycle 2. We also offer 90 minutes a week of English Language Arts which is introduced in Cycle 2. All curricula is prescribed by the Quebec Ministry of Education.
I invite you to peruse our website to familiarize yourselves with our school organization and to revisit it regularly to stay tuned with our school events.
