French Immersion Maple Man fun!

SMS was fortunate to welcome La Grande Coulee – ‘The Maple Man’ today to enrich our FI students in French-Canadian traditions!  The students experienced the history and traditions surrounding French culture, the story of the Maple Man himself, rigadoons played on the Maple Man’s violin, wooden spoon played collectively by students and staff, and of course – real maple taffy on a bed of snow!!  Thank you for bringing your joie de vivre and knowledge!!
