From March 10 to March 18, Language Department Chair Laurence Farhat, French teacher Yves Marcuard, and French teacher Edem Afemeku led a group of 17 PDS students on a spring break trip to France. The group of teachers and students from grades 8-10 drove through several regions from Normandy to Bretagne to Chartres and stopped at the Omaha D-Day beaches, Mont Saint-Michel, Saint-Malo, Chartres Cathedral, and the Normandy American Cemetery in Colleville, where they took a moment to lay a bouquet of flowers and reflect on the soldiers’ sacrifices toward freedom. When they arrived in Paris, spending five days to explore the many facets of “la Ville des Lumières,” the group visited many monuments, museums, and landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Louvre Museum, Notre-Dame Cathedral, and Sainte-Chapelle. They also visited a myriad of bakeries and restaurants, tasting many French specialities including croissants, beef stew, and crêpes, and had the opportunity to see how baguettes are made. In addition, they conducted a scavenger hunt in the Jardin du Luxembourg, interviewed Parisians in a farmers’ market, took a boat ride on the Seine, shopped on the boulevard Saint Michel, and got their caricature drawn in Montmartre.
