Newsletter - March 2023

Updated: Oct 26, 2023

The sun is shining, the trees are blooming, and everywhere the birds are chirping and chirping loudly… spring is gently setting in.

Our little chicks of L’école did not wait for the first rays to leave the nest and go on an adventure. It must be said that the month of March was rich in discoveries.

We opened the dance with the carnival and its shimmering and extravagant costumes! The program included the making of original masks where everyone was able to express their creativity. The children paraded to rhythmic music in a festival of colors, feathers, and sequins in front of the eyes of the enchanted parents.

And since the weather is already so nice, L’école secured a nice surprise for our little sparrows so that they can fully enjoy their playground. The world-renowned artist Patrick Dougherty himself came to create a unique work of art made of intertwined branches. Early in the morning, students were able to observe his work, talk with him, and participate in the elaboration and construction of the wooded structure. Adults could see an original cabin with an entrance, a window, and a chimney while the younger ones found, for some, a giant nest, for others a pixie’s den or a secret refuge. And for all, without a doubt, an extraordinary place, that you can’t find anywhere else, in which you can hide, imagine, and especially dream!

In order to develop this precious connection to nature and learn to observe and appreciate it more, the elementary students went to the North Carolina Museum of Art where the school’s director had organized a tour on the theme of the tree. You are never too young to learn about and be exposed to art in all its forms. We have so much to tell you, but we invite you to live the experience yourself, knowing that several museums in North Carolina have been free since 1947.

All of these enriching outings and activities are made possible in part by donations made to the school. The fundraising dinner at the Coquette Brasserie was an opportunity to gather around good French food to support our school. We warmly thank all the participants and parents who are helping us daily. The diffusion of the French culture, its values, and its language is only possible thanks to you. So, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
