French Language Resources 

The OCDSB has compiled a comprehensive list of French language resources to help parents and caregivers support students registered in Core French and French Immersion. It includes digital magazines, audiobooks, podcasts and more. Parents and caregivers can choose resources based on grades and CEFR language levels.

Access thousands of digital books for Grade 8 and under.

Je Lis, Je Lis

Kindergarten to Grade 4 Levelled Reading Resource for French Immersion.

This takes the most basic user of the language through a series of topics and functional language the child would need to use the language in different situations. It has a "video game" type of functionality to it which can be attractive to some students. The student develops an ear for words and their particular sound which can help with their reading fluency in the end. The basic account (you need an e-mail address to get one) is free and parents can invest in the PLUS account.

This USED to be a free program through the City of Ottawa Library card. Looking at the site, it seems that parents may need to subscribe for a year. Please consult local library for more information on this. Tumblebooks has readers in English and in French. They can choose to read the book themselves or have the computer read to them (develop their listening while following along with the text). Some books have supplemental comprehension quizzes.

Safe Schools Reporting Tool - An Anonymous Reporting Option for Students

The OCDSB has created a new Safe Schools Reporting Tool. It’s a private and anonymous way for students to share their concerns. If your child is feeling unsafe or worried about a friend or classmate, they can send an anonymous report through our website: OCDSB Report-itThis can be used for concerns about many different things, like: bullying, harassment, threats, hate or discrimination, mental health concerns, vaping or drugs, or other concerns that are affecting you or someone else. This tool is not a replacement for talking to their teacher or principal. It’s just another way to get help. If it's an emergency or someone is in danger, students should always call 911 immediately.


Over the last few years, PPPS has adopted the WITS program (i.e., Walk away, Ignore, Talk it out, Seek Help) as an Anti-Bullying initiative. Please consider taking a few moments to take a look at the WITS website in order to become more familiar with this program.

Prevnet Anti-Bullying Resources

PrevNet is a great resource to help parents properly understand bullying, some definitions about what bullying looks like, and some of the tools  used to address this difficult issue.

School Bus Safety

Safety on the bus is a team effort. View some bus safety tips that may be useful for all of our students.
