Last week, we had an amazing kick-off for <<le club de français>>! We had a blast eating and watching <<Chocolat.>> If you could not make it, never fear, our next meeting will be jeudi le 20 septembre (Thursday, September 20th). Please join us!! We will be electing officers and talking tee-shirts for 2018-2019.
This week, we have Picture Day and PTSA Open House on September 6th! Picture Day will require an adjustment to the schedule with an extended homeroom and a shorter 1st and 2nd period. PTSA Open House will begin in the Reece Theater at 6:30 pm. We hope to see you and your parents there!
Français 1 - We are working on a Google Voice project that was started last Friday. We will show you what to expect when you are ready to record and give you a sample conversation. We are working on nouns and articles, giving the date and telling about the weather. Last week, we took a quiz over numbers. Be ready to make this up ASAP if you were absent. If your score wasn't what you had hoped for, you need to practice some more and try the quiz again. You can get additional practice by trying some games in Français-Extra by clicking here -- www.francaisextra.com.

Français 2 - We will be taking our large unit exam this week. There will be two separate grades earned on this exam. One grade for vocabulary and structures and one for reading comprehension. Please refer to your study guide from today and use your Verb Guide 2000 to review.

You can get extra practice and review by clicking on the same websites mentioned in the French 1 section above.
For this week's blog challenge, I want you to research the significance of le 3 septembre with regard to American history. The Treaty of Paris was signed on this date ending a major American war. I will award cinq tickets if you can tell me the year that the treaty was signed and cinq tickets if you can provide me with the name of the war that was ended. You could start looking by clicking here -- www.history.com. Bonne chance! Ciao!
