Montessori students celebrate French Week
Wednesday, May 25, 2011
VanMall — Oui, oui! Bonjour, Madame. Students at Skinner Elementary Montessori School might have heard and spoken a few of these phrases during French Week, which celebrates the French culture. No need to fly to France to see the Eiffel Tower; it came to the students. The students also played a soccer game — France against World Cup champion Spain — tried French food in a petit cafe, participated in the Tour de Skinner bicycle race and ended the week with a carnival highlighting French games. Each day, the students had French lessons from Madame Boger, the school’s French teacher.
