Check out this great bunch who decided to hit the streets in an effort to raise some money for this year’s trip to France. They earned donations by singing carols at the Palmer Park Market. Feel like you want to donate to the cause? Call the school office to see how. You can also participate in the King Cake drive with the proceeds going towards the Paris trip.
Keep up the good work Rarebirds!
Check out the ACS Soccer Team! Congrats Rarebirds!
The JCC is offering a “School’s Out” program this Friday January 29th. In addition, they are offering new children’s classes beginning after Mardi Gras. Many of them are being offered on Sundays and do not compete with Audubon’s after school programs.

Help support the current French 7th graders as they fundraise for their 8th grade trip next year to France! Not everyone can pay the entire cost and this is a unique experience for both classes. Most of them have been in Audubon’s French program since age 4 with the dream of learning in France for 14 days!
This month, you can help by ordering a king cake (or two) from Maurice’s Pastries and know that a portion will go towards this educational exchange trip. Order form is in the school office & linked here: final-king cake order form as PDF.

For the past three years, the PTO has provided a school supply ordering service for parents. In June, parents are able to order a complete set of school supplies (specific to their child’s grade level and program) ONLINE for prices often lower than what they can find in stores.
The PTO is looking for a coordinator for the school supply box order. We currently have no one to do this. If we cannot find a coordinator, we will have to discontinue the school supply service.
Please look at the description below and contact Mandy at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
The Coordinator would be responsible for communicating with the school in the next 2 months to secure supply lists from each grade level. They would be helped by the French and Montessori directors. Can be done exclusively via email from work or home.
In May and June, the coordinator would pass fliers to parents and put up signs around school letting parents know that it is time to order school supplies. Would take approximately 30 minutes at each campus with help from other PTO members or volunteers.
In August, the coordinator would handle receiving the supply boxes at each campus. With a team of volunteers the coordinator would unload the boxes and distribute them to the classrooms. This would take either 1 whole day or 2 half days during second week of August.
The previous coordinator will help talk the new coordinator through the process and would be there to answer any questions.
It would be a real shame to discontinue this service. We have to sign a contract with the company by the end of January, so I hope someone will respond soon.
Congratulations to the 6th and 7th grade students awarded the DELF at Gallier Hall this on Wednesday evening! The Consulate General of France in Louisiana was proud of the exciting accomplishment of our students.
Féllicitations aux élèves de 6ème et 5ème collège qui ont reçu leur diplôme d’études en langue française au Gallier Hall mercredi soir !
