Another Year of French Excellence!

In March, French students in Grades 7 and 8 classes participated in Le Grand Concours 2020. Le Grand Concours is an annual and National French written contest, featuring all states and close to 70000 participants. Every year, our Peabody students perform outstandingly. This year again, all were recognized, and Peabody received 1 platinum award, 4 gold medals, 5 silver medals and 4 bronze medals. A very special applause to  Larissa Barbosa-Ferreira  who received a  PLATINUM medal  and plaque, ranking in  first place nationally !
