King's Day 2015

It is the tradition in France to share a GALETTE during the month of January to celebrate the beginning of the Mardi Gras season which officially starts on Jaunuary 6th.
Mrs. Frazier's Fench classes will study the tradition by reading books, studying different recipes and cakes, playing card games in French and sharing a Galette.
Lower grade classes will also make crowns and other Mardi Gras decorations.
Bonne fête des Rois!

Chadian Artist Taigue Ahmed conducted a dance workshop for French 4th & 5th graders


"Root" narrates my origin. It talks about where I come from and reveals and honours the richness of the Chadian dance heritage that I received in my childhood. I wish to share this dance, full of joy and love, with the youth, providing them with the basic knowledge which will help them dance on the rhythm of the drums coming from the heart of Africa. This will be a memorable time of awakening and joy."
