November is full of pumpkin pies and turkeys, but we cannot forget about all of the delicious french pastries eaten in classrooms all over the country during  National French Week. From November 1st to 7th, the CHS French Club will be one of the thousands of schools hosting a variety of activities to celebrate French food and culture. This is the seventeenth consecutive year in which this National French Week has been organized, led by the American Association of Teachers of French to promote and celebrate the language and culture inside and outside the classroom all across the nation.

At Cresskill, on November 2nd the French club will be catering a faculty breakfast and an entire buffet filled with croissants, crepes and  macarons for the everyone to enjoy. To add, there is a National French Kahoot where many school across the country compete for the grand prize.

Sophia Scanlon, a junior and active member of the French club, is amongst many of the students at Cresskill who looks forward to celebrate this week every year where she is especially excited “to share everything [she] has learned about the class over the years with [her] peers and enjoy pastries”.

The Cresskill High School French Club works hard to prepare for this week every year, but it is not the only event that they organize.

“Things to look forward to [this year] are definitely future holiday parties and other cultural celebrations” says the French Club president, Chloe Min.

One of the most notable celebrations the club hosts is the annual Holiday Language party in December. As October comes to a close and November rolls around, make sure to keep an eye out for the French Club and take a moment to see what they’re up to!
