|Past Movie - Le Petit Nicolas - |
The showing of Le Petit Nicolas was a great success and had the largest attendance this year. The Saturday afternoon 2 pm matinee was appreciated by all parents and upon popular request, we have added 6 similar dates in 2012 .
Thank you for your feedback and suggestions: seating improvements for smaller children, a better buffet distribution to eliminate the bottle neck at the head table.
Thank you to all the teachers who were present that day, to Anne Jensen of the AATF who came with 15 teenagers, thank you to Gabrielle Durana and Judith Rapoport of the EFBA who supported the idea and actively distributed fliers and email. Thanks to the ISTP who also distributed fliers and online messages.

Dear Nancy and Star ,
It is a great pleasure for me to announce the Fall Program, with our November and December showings. The theme as you know is "La Seduction" or "How the French play the game of life". Based on a 2011 book by american Paris based author Elaine Sciolino, these movies represent, we think, some interesting and colorful aspect of The seduction.
Go to La Seduction on the web to learn more.
Join us for good films, food and conversations.
