Blogger's Note: The following was provided by The Wyndcroft School.
Eight Fourth Graders from The Wyndcroft School received recognition from the American Association of Teachers of French for their performance on the National French Contest/Le Grand Concours. 

These students all placed in the top 12 percent of students across the county.

“We are so proud of progress our students make with the French language during their time at Wyndcroft,” said French teacher, Ida Fauth of Collegeville. “And to have so many of our 4th graders receive honors in this first competition is wonderful. One student even finished in the top 3 percent, which is an amazing accomplishment.”

The National French Contest/Le Grand Concours is an annual competition sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French. Students of French in all 50 states and abroad take a written test and compete against students with similar educational background for prizes.

“The study of the French language is a tradition at Wyndcroft,” says Head of School Gail L. Wolter of Pottstown. “French is one of the easiest languages for English speakers to learn and is used in many ways around the world. Every student at Wyndcroft, from our pre-school through 8th grade, becomes a global citizen through their studies of the French language and culture.”

The Wyndcroft School is an independent day school for students 3 years of age through 8th Grade. Located in Pottstown, the mission of the school is to offer a rigorous academic program enabling the child to establish a firm foundation for a happy and successful future with confidence to succeed in an ever-changing world.
