Dear Parents and Guardians, The summer is fast approaching, and with it the end of the school year! While we in the French team are excited for the break, we’re even more eager to gear up for next year—and a major part of gearing up is taking care of our books. Unlike other class materials, which go home with our scholars, the French activity book will live on campus during the summer. In the next five weeks, we will be labeling and collecting these books for safekeeping.

If you plan to change school networks, or i…
