Canyons District this week is hosting 12 students and two teachers from Grenoble, France. The French delegation arrived late Saturday, Jan. 22, and will return early Saturday, Jan. 29.
The schedule for the students and their advisers, who are being housed by gracious volunteer host families who live in Canyons District, is quite robust and includes time in the two CSD elementary schools that house French-English dual-immersion language programs and the three CSD high schools with French language programs.
The students nine girls and three boys, who range in age from 16 to 17 years old also are excited to attend movie screenings, question-and-answer sessions with actors and directors, and other cinema-related events of the Sundance Film Festival. Select Canyons District high school students will accompany the French students to the film festival activities and tours around Salt Lake City and Park City.
