Students of French participating in a scavenger hunt.

La Toussaint

  • November 1st is La Toussaint, when All Saint's Day is celebrated in France.  On this day, French families typically visit a cemetery to pay their respects to family members who have passed away.  This year, seventh and eighth grade students of French participated in this tradition with a project in which they honored the lives of famous French personalities.  Each student made a tombstone poster that contained information about a deceased famous French person.  The tombstone posters were organized to form a French cemetery in the hallway where students participated in a scavenger hunt.
    This activity coincided with the first day of National French Week (November 2nd-6th).
