Sugarloaf Friday vs. The Unexpected Storm

While everyone may still have February break on their minds, going back to school really isn't quite so bad at L'École Française du Maine. Before break, students, teachers and chaperones fought off the unexpected snow storm to hit the slopes at Sugarloaf. The entire school community makes several trips up to Sugarloaf mountain each winter to ski together in a very special and unique program to L'École Française du Maine. Students of all levels are given the opportunity to learn to ski something that is an essential part of Maine culture which is made accessible to all through the school. It was a great day full of fun and wonderful memories and everyone was glad to be out on their skies for such an amazing day with their friends. Looking forward to more Sugarloaf Fridays this winter starting this week! Welcome Back Everyone!

School Director Willy LeBihan prepares over a hundred crêpes for La Chandeleur

On the second of February, France celebrated it's national holiday of crêpe making, La Chandeleur is a holiday in France that marks the possible end of winter and the return of light. To mark this event, the entire nation heads to the kitchen to celebrate the oncoming of spring by making crêpes. Willy LeBihan, Director of L'École Française du Maine, embraced his Brittany origins, the region of France famous for their crêpes, as he prepared over 100 crêpes for the students. Everyone had a blast eating the crêpes as there is nothing quite as wonderful in the world as crêpes with Nutella. The school is very thankful for Willy's generous work and felicitates him as his crêpes were délicieux! 

Merci Willy et Bon Appétit!
