French Embassy, Wasington, DC - June 4, 2013

On June 4, a class of American schoolchildren visited the French embassy for a reception held in honor of the Embassy Adoption Program. Hosted by Sophie L’Hélias-Delattre, wife of François Delattre, the Ambassador of France to the United States, the Shepherd Elementary School students, led by their teacher, Chantal Gadie, presented a short theater performance. The students then attended a class on making crêpes and had the chance to get their faces painted.
