Great news from Principal Faye Robins and French/Spanish teacher Ms. Stephanie Murphy. The National French Contest, Le Grand Concours was recently held and two South Huntington students not only placed 1st in Suffolk County, but one student, 8th grader, Christina Bogdani, placed first in the entire nation. Christina’s perfect score places her on a very short list of student’s nation-wide who have accomplished this feat.

The National French Contest/Le Grand Concours is an annual competition sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French. Students of French in all 50 states and abroad, take a written test and compete against students with similar educational background for prizes.   Grades 1-6 participate in the FLES Contest.  Grades 7-12 in the Secondary Contest.
