November first marked the start of National French Week at schools across America. The French Club and French Honors Society at Centennial decided to kick things off the right way with a delicious French Breakfast for club members, administration, and members of the World Language Department. Aside from the ubiquitous croissants, the breakfast spread included yummy tartines made from butter and jam or simply Nutellea, yogurt, fresh fruit, along with coffee, hot chocolate, and orange juice.
On November 3rd, the French Club and French Honors Society held a Tour de Centennial followed by a crepe eating contest. For the Tour de Centennial expert student bikers rode a mini bike through a timed obstacle course where they wove in and out of perilous chairs, battled the twists and turns of the equilibrium defying baseball bat challenge, and ended with a bang by completing a balloon pop! Of course, when the Tour was over, the hungry riders partook in a crepe eating contest where Camilla devoured her crepe in record time.
To wrap up National French Week, the club headed to A Noise Within theater in Pasadena to watch The Madwoman of Chaillot, a satirical comedy-drama by Jean Giraudoux.
