BHS French students recognize La Toussaint

October 31st is a big deal in the United States.  While many young Americans participate in Halloween festivities, students in France look forward La Toussaint (All Saints’ Day), a public holiday, which takes place on November 1st and also means a two week break from school.  It is also a time when French families visit cemeteries to remember and honour their deceased relatives. For La Toussaint, BHS French classes researched innovative Francophone speakers who left a lasting impact on the world. Stop by their display in the hallway adjacent to the lower library and take a cemetery walk to learn about some of these amazing people.
