SAHS students tour France

french trip

A group of Stillwater Area High School French students and teachers recently returned from a trip overseas. 37 juniors and seniors spent about two weeks touring France along with four teachers (Jackie Parr, Jo Dougherty, Amy Budion and retired french teacher Mary Ellen Kasak Saxler.) The students, who have all completed at least 4 years of French, used the trip to expand their language skills as well as understand cultural differences and similarities. The trip also included a seven day stay with individual host families in La Rochelle. Photos on Facebook.
