DV students win in Le Grand Concours

Dear Parents,

It is my pleasure to announce that Da Vinci won Sweepstakes in French this school year. We attended the awards ceremony last Saturday where several of our students received their medals and trophies. Also, we had a Platinum Grand Prix Winner in the 2017 National French Contest, Luis Mora.

A platinum winner is the highest award in Le Grand Concours — Luis Mora earned the top score in the nation in his respective level and division! The award includes a platinum medal, a plaque for the student, and a Laurét National certificate.

Here is the list of winners and some pictures. A special thank you to Ms. Burnham and Mrs. Gonzalez for their valuable support for the French program at Da Vinci. We are proud to be Dragons!

Respectfully,
Mme. Rocío Acevedo
