Félicitations! to French students in grades 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th!

In March 2020 the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade French students participated in Le Grand Concours, a National French Contest sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French. The students’ performance was outstanding! Twenty-nine students were recognized for their achievement. Certificates and medals will be mailed to the graduating 8th graders and distributed to the rest of the students in September. These results are an affirmation of the students’ hard work and continuous improvement throughout the years.

Buckingham Friends School has participated in Le Grand Concours for the past twenty years.  This year there were close to 70,000 students in the United States and 3,000 in the Philadelphia area who participated in the contest. The Buckingham Friends French students can be very proud of their accomplishments.
