It’s well-known that you need a couple years of foreign language to graduate high school, and for most, French and Spanish aren’t the most fancied classes. However, some students enjoy their foreign language classes, and those students tend to join one of the two clubs associated with that language, the EHS French Club being one of them.
The EHS French Club is a high school club that embraces the French language and culture. It’s welcome to anyone who is in French 1 or French 2, has taken a French class, or simply has an admiration for the language.
French Club has done charity work in the community. Such work includes raking yards in the autumn, bell-ringing for the Salvation Army, and reading to younger kids at the library. Also, French Club has held various sales at school— most notably, the holiday-themed bake sales. Profits mainly are donated for students who are studying abroad and used to take French Club on field trips to places like Chicago, Appleton, and Quebec.
One event that French Club, along with Spanish Club, takes part in is the annual EHS World Language Fashion and Variety Show. Every year, both students in foreign language classes and students with foreign backgrounds show off their language skills paired with snazzy outfits from the school’s Clothes Closet. Along with the main extravaganza, students can show off their different talents for the whole student body to watch.
For more information on French Club, see Mrs. Wagner in Room C104. Meetings are after school on Thursdays.
