Last week, Morrow House celebrated La Semaine du Français, (National French Week), which is sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French. 

French students inspired others to learn more about the French language and culture.  French 7 and 8 classes experienced la Cuisine Française, under the direction of Chef Dino Buzzerio, making crêpes with homemade raspberry sauce, honey whipped cream, and French lentil salad.

Through sharing songs and creating posters and signs, French 5 and French 6 students expressed their enthusiasm for the French language and culture.  One of the students entered the classroom saying, “This is the best week ever!”

One of the highlights of the week was participating in a collective game of  Simon Dit (Simon Says) in the theater.  Commands were given in the French language for all to learn or review the parts of the body.  The week wrapped up as the students dressed up à la française, with bérets, scarves, and the colors of the French flag, bleu, blanc and rouge.

Madame DiGi and Madame Platter were proud of how magnifique their students performed, as French was promoted throughout the Morrow House community. The annual Book Fair even sold chocolate croissants! Students learned why French will be a tremendous asset for their future.
