French is a global language! It is the second most learned foreign language after English, and the fifth most widely spoken language in the world. Research shows that learning multiple languages provides significant academic, cognitive, and social benefits to children.
Our Pre-K students are immersed in the French language through fun songs and rhymes, movement and dance, daily read-alouds of French books, oral language games, and engaging playtime in a literacy-rich classroom environment. Our Pre-K program is full-day and always free for St. Paul students.
Welcome to L'Etoile du Nord French Immersion Elementary School! My goal this year is to build relationships with each and every student and family, and to continue to develop a welcoming school community with a high-quality, equitable French immersion education for all students with lots of opportunities for fun and social and emotional learning. -Sofia Bossard
