Free the Parents

What is Free the Parents?

Whether it’s dinner and a walk downtown in Courtenay or some Christmas shopping, Free the Parents' activities may include art projects, sports, G-rated movies, games and of course, dinner and snacks.

Free the Parents is a group of 44 Senior French Immersion students from Mark R. Isfeld supervised by five teachers, and several parents.

They are planning a trip to Europe to learn about Canada and the world wars and to celebrate the language/culture they have been studying for almost 13 years.

The group decided to offer a service to the community instead of selling a product. The idea of Free the Parents Night as a fundraiser brings some freedom to parents while their children are having a great time with the Isfeld students.

All money raised will go toward a European trip in the spring.

The service is for parents of children aged six to 12 as of Nov. 16, 2012. Reservations are required. Walk-ins are not allowed.

Registration forms and payment are to be dropped off at the Mark Isfeld main office at 1551 Lerwick in Courtenay or mailed by Nov. 12 at 4 p.m. If mailed, make it to the attention of Jouska Lockquell.

If you have any further questions, e-mail jouska.lockquell@sd71.bc.ca.
