Notre Monde Our World

Notre Monde means Our World in French. This magazine is our main source of communicating initiatives happening within the Calgary French & International School (CFIS) to our community and beyond. The Notre Monde is a wonderfully collaborative effort with dozens of students and parents and nearly all faculty members writing one or more stories for the magazine each year. Articles are edited, compiled and laidout by our editorial and design team, Theresa Gerritsen, Karen Nesbitt and Corrina Lynne, under the guidance of our Head of School, Mme. Margaret Dorrance. Please contact Mme. Theresa Gerritsen, Director of Communications, Marketing and Advancement at [email protected] with any submissions, photos, questions, comments or corrections. Thank you for reading the Notre Monde. We invite you to pass along this edition and others to your friends, family, colleagues and anyone who might be interested in becoming part of the CFIS community. Copyright © 2015 CFIS
