French Club is a primarily student-led club at Starr’s Mill that meets once a month to celebrate the culture of francophone countries. The club’s members meet once a month (in the morning or afternoon) in Jill Snelgrove’s room, where they eat food, socialize, and listen to French music.

Jill Snelgrove replaced Marie Scott as the club sponsor this year when she arrived at Starr’s Mill as the new French teacher. Her job is to assist and guide the student leaders of the club. “[My duties are] to ensure that we meet and that the officers are doing their duties, so that French is promoted to the students,” Snelgrove said.

The officers of French club prepare interesting events and activities for the members. These include a crepe meeting, a Valentine’s Day party, a Halloween party, and participation in the foreign language clubs’ annual kickball tournament. In addition to giving students a chance to learn new things, the club tries to give back to the community.

“In previous years, I know [French Club] has also done a service project with Broom Closet,” Snelgrove said. “I hope to do it again in the future.”
