November French Club Meeting



We had our second French Club meeting of the year on November 14, with over 30 students in attendance!  We learned about the importance of snails in French culture, then we played Escargot, a French variant on hopscotch, which involves hopping on one foot and counting up to 15.  Winners got prizes!

Some of the food we ate included Brie cheese or Nutella on baguette bread, macarons, meringues, quiche, clafoutis, cream puffs, Caribbean sweet quick bread, gateau à fruits, and croissants.

These students look pretty excited about the festivities!
