On Friday, November 5, 2021, in honor of the AATF’s National French Week, West Haven High School celebrated with a French lunch in the cafeteria. As students entered the cafeteria, French teacher Madame Gina Reichert had French bistro music playing, and was poised to serve students dessert, along with help from a few French students and administrators. Head Custodian Joseph Bonaldo, who kept the supplies refilled, was a huge help! The menu, prepared by cafeteria director Meg Kingston and her crew, included Coq au Vin ( a popular chicken dish) pommes purees (mashed potatoes) with herbes de Provence, ratatouille, and salade nicoise. For dessert, each student received a profiterole (cream puff) and a cup of chocolat chaud with whipped cream. The event was also the culmination of Spirit Week at the high school, and right after lunch the students enjoyed a pep rally outdoors.
