All of the French classes took their hand at making French crêpes today.  Even Mr. Marshburn, prof de maths, came over to give it a try.

BOUMIESTA!

  French & Spanish students and teachers celebrated the end of the first semester with a party, called a “Boumiesta”, created from the Spanish word “Fiesta” and French word “Boum”.  We got together every period to sample Mexican “ponche navideño”, a traditional drink served in Mexico at Christmas time and a Fondue au chocolat.  Ponche Navideño includes exotic ingredients such as tamarind, sugar cane, piloncillo and tejocotes, a small yellow fruit from Mexico.  We watched Frosty le Bonhomme de Neige in French and Spanish as well.
