French IV students recently enjoyed a field trip to the French Quarter. Their action-packed day began with beignets and coffee at Café du Monde, followed by a scavenger hunt with clues leading to spots such as the statue of Joan of Arc, the patron saint of France, originally cast by French sculptor Emmanuel Frémiet; the statue of Jean Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville, founder of the settlement of New Orleans; and the stations of the cross at The Cathedral-Basilica of Saint Louis, King of France, commonly known as the St. Louis Cathedral. Next, they headed to the New Orleans School of Cooking for lunch, where they learned how to make gumbo, crawfish étouffée, bananas Foster, and pralines. After, they visited The Historic New Orleans Collection and explored two exhibitions, "French Quarter Life: People and Places in the Vieux Carré" and "Notre-Dame de Paris: The Augmented Exhibition."
