Today the French trip CFE group all gathered in french teacher and group leader Mark Norlander’s room to discuss more details about the upcoming trip. Reverend Dan Bergstrom is the other group chaperone of the trip.

The students spent the flex and assembly period dissecting the criss-crossing colored lines of the subway map in preparation for the journey in March.

Norlander stresses the importance of understanding how to maneuver through the country with both the knowledge of basic survival french phrases and a basic idea of how ground transportation works.

If worst comes to worst, the students will just have to walk everywhere! (not really)
