Bienvenue à la Café Français

Grade V French students play host to family and friends at Café Français.

The Athletic Center looked more like a cozy Parisian coffee shop than a place of fitness on Friday morning as checkered tablecloths and flowers dressed up café tables during the Grade V Café Français.

Event hostesses, a sprightly bunch of Grade V girls donning aprons and stylish French berets, ushered hungry friends and family to open tables and took orders.  Balancing trays of espresso, café au lait (coffee with milk) and an assortment of French pastries like tarte aux pommes (apple tart) and mousse au chocolat (chocolate mousse), the girls bounced between tables while speaking French.

Over the course of the past week, the girls put their baking skills to the test by preparing a variety of homemade Parisian pasties, in addition to designing posters and food menus for the big day.
