Les crêpes !

On February 2, we celebrated La Chandeleur in class, which is a French holiday similar to Groundhog Day.  We enjoyed crêpes, a common treat on this day.  Thank you to Crepini, who sold the crêpes at a discount which made this event very affordable!

Thanks for joining us, Mr. Palmer!

Flipping crêpes is a Chandeleur tradition!

December in French Class

December was a busy month in French class!

At our French Club meeting, students made miniature bûches de Noël, a tinier version of a popular holiday treat in France.

French Club students sold pens, pencils and erasers to raise money to donate to UNICEF to help with hurricane relief in Haiti.

Over $200 was raised!

Students made holiday cards in French and English to give to a friend, family member, or teacher.

On December 23, we enjoyed holiday treats such as bûche de Noël (above)
