Le Mystère de la chambre jaune

Earlier this year, the students of 7th grade participated in a 'concours' on the French detective novel Le Mystère de la chambre jaune organized by the French consulate in Boston all through New England. The book was written by Gaston Leroux and published in 1907.
Our students read and studied the book through activities in class. They had the choice between three written assignments. Their papers were sent to Boston where a jury decided upon the best ones. The first prize was a trip to France and many other prizes.
I am very excited and pleased to announce that one of our students, Ellis, got a special prize. Félicitations to the winner and to all our 7th graders who worked very hard on this project and put their hearts into it. They all wrote wonderful papers…
