Some 300 students in five District schools are speaking French, learning French culture and history and enjoying delicious French food at local restaurants as part of a program partnership with the Alliance Francais, an organization that promotes French culture and Franco-American ties.
Students at Randle Highlands Elementary School in Southeast are participating in the program, which Principal Theresa Alexis Williams says is a great enrichment tool.
"When they're at this age, they learn it so fast. Their brains are like sponges," Williams says.
