It has been a long and cold month of January in Montreal! We have had many snow storms, ice rain and frigid temperatures. This is expected in January. It is the coldest month of the year. EC English Montreal school‘s social events theme was all about New Year’s resolutions. We had fitness classes and healthy lunch days. We wanted to end the month with a really nice social activity, giving our students an opportunity to interact with one another over a hot cup of chocolate. The students really appreciated a hot beverage on such a cold January day in Montreal! We served delicious hot chocolate with all kinds of wonderful toppings; whipped cream, fudge syrup, caramel, cinnamon, coco powder and cookie swivel sticks. The students had a great time creating their cups of deliciousness! It has been an eventful January and are looking forward to our February activities – when love will be all around us! Life is sweet at EC Montreal!
