Students from a local middle school are planning a trip to France this summer and need help to make it happen. Luther Judson Price Middle School will hold a fundraiser Friday, May 10, to sponsor 10 students and six chaperones for a 10-day tour of France.
They need help buying the airline tickets for all 16 people.
The purpose of the tour is to further enhance students' knowledge and skills to become active global citizens of society. During their travels, students will attend classes and live with host families.
French teacher Shamita Johnson formed a partnership with a school in Nancy-Metz, France, at the beginning of the school year. She said they regularly video conference and write pen pal letters.
Johnson said this is the only program of its type in a Georgia middle school.
The Price French Trip fundraiser will be held at Pin Strikes entertainment center in Stockbridge, GA, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
