French Honor Society hosted “French Week” this past week, in order to help engage and teach the younger students about French culture. The food was provided by parent volunteers, who worked alongside the students during activities. This year, the activities included Pentaque (a French take on bowling), French trivia, and certain phonetic exercises as well as henna. The henna was used to emphasize the influences of French culture around the world. According to French Honor Society President Elizabeth Bright, “The mission of French Week is to promote the Francophone culture and to encourage students to take French in high school. French Week was very successful this year as we were able to teach some basic French culture and words to over 300 elementary and middle school students.”
