Next Meeting

Bonjour tout le monde!

          I hope that everyone is having a great day, and an awesome week!  As you know, the first French Club meeting was held last Wednesday in the Shepherd Union building.  I want to thank all those who attended and contributed ideas.  As I said in the email I sent out last week, there were plenty of fantastic ideas.

          Our next meeing will be held November 16th in the Shepherd Union building room 316 at 6:00pm - 7:15pm.  I would like to see even more people there next week than I did the past week.  I cannot stress how important it is that we have as many people as we can at our meetings.  We need to hear your thoughts and ideas for the club so that your thoughts and ideas can be put to action. 

          One of the ideas presented last week was to start a teaching/tutoring system with local schools.  This would include grade schools, middle schools and high schools.  We are going to be making contact with schools this week to find out which schools will allow us to come in on a regular basis and help with the students.  There is still more to discuss before we are going to make any assignments or set anything in stone, but right now we are thinking about having two students per school making visits every other week for 30-45 minutes.  It won't be a huge commitment, but it will help to accomplish our mission statement of progressing the french language in our community. 

          Along with discussing our plan with the local schools we will be playing some games, eating some dessert and getting to know each other better.  Let's get as many people there as we can and make this club something worth talking about here on campus.  Remember, the more we participate the more we will be rewarded and noticed by the University.  That can provide so many opportunities for us as a club, as well as each of you as members.  I hope to see you all there!!
