L'Ecole Française du Maine is delighted to announce the completion of its new classroom and entrance, designed for the 2013-2014 Fifth and Sixth grade class to accommodate the School's increased enrollment.  The all-in-glass staircase and entry was designed and constructed by Doug Piehl, owner of Freeport Services and Freeport Conservatories.  This addition blends remarkably well with the original 1950's building style and was able to take advantage of a large unoccupied space below the building. The large glass doorway offers a spectacular view of the playground and brings in natural light.  Residents of the village of South Freeport have praised the design of this addition.  A special thanks to Doug Piehl and his crew for meeting the deadline of the inauguration of January 30th, despite uncooperative weather.

Families, friends, students and distinguished guests visit the new classroom space.
