This week’s Throwback Thursday image is that of our annual hot chocolate activity that is part of our Soulful November themed calendar of events. The month of November is all about soothing the mind, body and soul with comfort. As the temperatures begin to dip below zero, we yearn for warm and soothing drinks and meals to comfort us.
The hot chocolate activity was always a great hit with our students. After their special focus class on Wednesday, they would be surprised to find the student lounge transformed into a hot chocolate bar! Every table would have thermoses of delicious hot chocolate and a wonderful variety of toppings including; cinnamon sticks, candy canes, chocolate sprinkles, miniature marshmallows, whipped cream, caramel sauce and chocolate fudge sauce. We would even have cookie straws to stir their hot chocolate with. In addition, every table would have some fun signs written on black chalkboard like “sweater weather”, “hot cup of love”, “baby, it’s cold outside”, and “c’est l’hiver”.
The students and staff enjoyed sipping their cups of deliciousness while mingling with their classmates. Creating these opportunities for our students to make friends, practice their language skills and make meaningful connections, has always been a priority for us at EC Montreal. Even now, despite the social gathering restrictions, we are finding a way to maintain a strong sense of family and community with our students. Students must stay within their classroom bubble, however, we bring joy to them in their class. We continue to celebrate every student’s birthday, graduation, special achievements and holidays.
EC Montreal will be decorating every individual classroom with Christmas decorations this year so the students can enjoy the holidays with their classmates. We will also be surprising them in class every Wednesday with a special holiday treat; chocolates, Christmas cookies, candy canes and other wonderful surprises.
