Mission Laique Française
L'Ecole Française du Maine wants to express its gratitude to the Mission Laique Française (MLF) and especially to MLF-America for its generous and effective support last year. Sylvie Polin at the MLF headquarters in Paris and Jean-François Genay, director of MLF America in Portland, Oregon were essential in the school's success in securing its full accreditation with the French Ministry of Education.
In the 2011-2012 academic year, our staff participated in several workshops at the International School of Boston organized by MLF. On August 30 and 31st, Soizic Bonnet, pedagogical coordinator for MLF schools in America and a faculty at Awty International School in Houston, Texas led our two days of inservice for the staff of L'Ecole Francaise du Maine. Soizic presented strategies for teaching oral language and developing common practices throughout the school.
