Stimson Middle School French students recently competed in the National French Exams, an annual competition sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French. Students of French in all 50 states and abroad participate by taking a written exam and compete against other students with similar educational backgrounds for prizes. Our seventh and eighth-grade students from Stephanie Murphy’s French class did an excellent job in this year’s competition as she considers her classes to be full of dedicated students with wonderful personalities and work ethics that make them a pleasure to work with. “I just give them the tools and they run with it, the kids really rise to the occasion.”
