CORTLANDT, N.Y. -- Twelve Pierre Van Cortlandt Middle School French students visited Quebec from Feb. 13-16.
The students participated in cold weather activities and sampled Canadian cuisine during the trip.
“The students enjoyed themselves and participated in many activities including snowshoeing, dog sledding and tobogganing,” said French teacher Sally Barnes. “We visited three museums, toured the Carnaval games, and visited the famous Ice Hotel and Montmorency Falls.”
The Croton-Harmon School District trip also included a lumberjack meal and sampling of tire d’érable -- maple taffy -- at the Sugar Shack. Despite the subzero weather, “It was a busy and fun four days,” said Barnes.
