Special Announcements
Good news from the French Government and their support of dual language in the US .

The French government has long played a role in the support of French language programs in the United States. Bénédicte de Montlaur, the cultural counselor of the French Embassy, has spearheaded the creation and development of the French Dual Language Fund, inaugurated by President Emmanuel Macron in 2017, which supports bilingual programs in public schools in the United States.

"The necessity of foreign-language education could not be clearer right now. The future in America, and everywhere, is multilingual. And so is the present." - Bénédicte de Montlaur.

We agree with this profound statement, and we are grateful to the French government for their continued support .

Lost & Found
Please come check the lost and found. There are dozens of coats, sweatshirts, lunchboxes, water bottles, etc. that we would hate to see going to waste. The lost and found is currently located in the Kindergarten hallway.
Toys & Pokemon
Recently the number of toys and Pokemon cards being brought to school has increased significantly. As the school year draws to a close, teachers are having greater difficulty keeping students focused and having toys and cards at school further distracts students. 
 
Toys and cards can be disruptive in the classroom and cause verbal and physical confrontations at recess. Please help us by monitoring what your child brings to school each day.
