French Department goes to France

By: Delaney Casten

During Spring Break (March 28th to April 5th), twelve students from the French Department will be traveling to France via A La Carte Travel.  The opportunity was opened to all levels of French students at Tuscarora. Chaperoning the trip will be Mrs. Dehoux and her husband.

The students will arrive at Paris, France on March 28.  Throughout the trip, there will be an English-speaking tour guide to escort the group.  On their first full day in France, the students will visit Champs-Elysées and the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.  They will be in Paris for two more days, where they will visit the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower.

For the remainder of the trip, the students will be traveling all around northern France.  Other than Paris, they will be visiting Bayeux, where they will be seeing the Tapestry of Bayeux, Normandy, where the students will be visiting the D-day Beaches, and for their last location, they will be going to Mont Saint-Michel, where they will take a tour through a castle.

“I’m most excited to show my students around Paris and watch them speak French to French people,” said Mrs. Dehoux, “and of course, the shopping.”

The cost of the trip includes transportation, hotel rooms, breakfasts, and dinners.  The only things the students will be responsible for paying for is lunch and souvenirs.

This is the first time the Tuscarora French Department is going to France, but Mrs. Dehoux plans on making it an annual trip.

“I’m excited to just be in Paris,” said senior Shannon Keye. “I’ve never been before and I am excited to finally experience the country I’ve been learning about for the past 6 years.”
