Students celebrate National French Week
French students celebrated National French Week. National French Week is a week-long celebration of all things French that takes place in schools and communities. Major themes of celebration include arts, crafts, cuisine, sports, games, traditions, music, and dance.
On Wednesday French members sold bon-bons during all lunches. Bon-bons are french candies that are very popular among the students and staff at Weddington High.
On Thursday, French students dressed up as traditional French people. Student broke out their striped shirts, scarves, and berets! Some students even wore fake mustaches. The AP French students dressed as famous French people from past and present. The AP French students also gave a mini-monologue to identify who they were.
Friday was sports and games day. The French students went outside and played a game typical to the south of France called Petanque. It is very similar to Bocce ball. Students wore French Club t-shirts to show our pride.
It was a week full of fun!
