French students tour middle school

LA GRANGE – La Grange Highlands Middle School hosted 17 students and two adults from the Collège Honoré de BALZAC, a middle school located in Neuilly-sur-Marne, France, just east of Paris, Feb. 11. 

The French students were in Chicago as part of an artist-in-residence project. Highlands students who are studying French initially made contact with the students at the beginning of the 2012-13 school year to start an email exchange. The French students decided to make a trip to the school to visit their email pen pals at Highlands while in Chicago.

The French students toured the school, had the opportunity to experience an American school classroom, were entertained by the Highlands show choir and were treated to a lunch of traditional American food including hot dogs, pizza, mac and cheese, jello and popcorn.
