We hear from Stephanie Murphy and Dr. Eikenaar-Klang, Stimson Middle School French teachers, that Stimson’s French students recently competed in the National French Exams and once again did a great job at this 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. Stimson had an excellent showing including 3 National Winners!

This was one more successful year for the French Students at Stimson. As usual, they did an outstanding job representing our school at the National French Contest 2016!
