Today the French Club students are traveling across northern France. We've gone from the Normandy coast to the Loire River Valley. After touring the ramparts of St. Malo, we had a stop to see the Mont Saint Michel which is 1300 years old. Last night we ate traditional peasant food from Normandy and today we visited Chenonceau, the Ladies' Castle. We're off to Paris this afternoon for one more busy, busy day. Our students have been amazing every step of the way! They're really making the Mount Markham community proud!

Students in Mrs. Brower's tenth-grade English class created their own children's books on life lessons learned from a book we read in class. Students read their life lesson book to Mrs. Casale's kindergarten class. We are thankful they let us come in and were such good listeners!

The French Club students made it across the English Channel on a 6 hour long ferry ride. They spent a night in Caen before setting out to tour the Normandy coast. The students visited two exhibitions to learn about the planning, execution, and aftermath of the D-Day invasion. They also visited Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery. It was an incredible experience.

Last week, Mount Markham High School celebrated Mentor Madness Week. For the past few years, our Sources of Strength program has hosted this week in March, in addition to numerous other mental health campaigns throughout the year. Mentor Madness Week highlights the importance of each student having a trusted adult, a proven protective factor in strengthening mental health. Throughout the week, there were numerous activities celebrating these strong and valuable relationships: "Mojo's Minute to Win It," Guess the Mentor's Song and Photo, Dress Like Your Mentor, and thank you cards and bracelets. The week concluded with the annual Wellness Fair, which promotes mental health, self-care, and wellness through several activities and resources. We had a variety of activities, giveaways, and more with multiple organizations and groups present again this year including iCAN, the Utica Zoomobile, Clark Sports Center, NY Project Hope, Catholic Charities, and more! We appreciate all the high school staff members who participated and helped out all week long!

Today was our French Club students' last day in London. They met up with a local guide, Tim, for a bus/walking tour and saw Big Ben, Westminster, Buckingham Palace, SoHo, and Covent Garden. Of course they couldn't leave London without trying delicious fish and chips from The Nag's Head pub.

The French Club students have arrived in London! After landing, they met their guide, Nathy, who took them to Notting Hill to visit Portabello Market Road for some London-style shopping and lunch. They rode the Underground (many students' first time on the subway) and saw many of the cities major sites from the top of the London Eye. They tried typical London fare at the Greyhound Pub before absolutely collapsing into bed. Special thank you to those involved in helping to fund the visit to the London Eye which was paid for by the Arts in Education grant (Mt Markham Representative, Marissa Winkler and Heather McCutcheon, Herkimer BOCES Arts in Education Coordinator).

The French Club students have already learned flexibility while traveling! After their flight was canceled in Albany, Mr Ed Schutz came back to the airport (he was already back at school) to take them from Alb to JFK. He was truly the hero of the day! Special thanks to Mr. Zampetti for coming to send us off and Mr Keith Williams and his crew for clearing the school out. Bon voyage!
