French Immersion Video

World renowned French singer, composer, poet and author Zachary Richard worked with the 2015-2016 5th grade French Immersion students to compose a song about New Iberia. With his guidance, the students composed the song, recorded the song and starred in the song's video. We are so appreciative of Mr. Richard's involvement with our French Immersion program.
