French Club Visits Connetquot

East Islip High School’s French Club paid a visit to fifth-grade classrooms at neighboring Connetquot Elementary School on Jan. 12, with the goal of sparking the younger students’ interest in studying the French language.

The idea behind the club’s linguistic outreach was to introduce French through various games and activities taught by the high school’s French Club students, including monument and sound bingo, a color slap game and a beat-the-clock number game. The fifth-graders all received  goody bags filled with French-themed items at the end of the presentation.

“The Connetquot students had a terrific time,” said French teacher Lauren Pinka, urging them to "sign up for French, c'est fantastique!"
