National Croissant Day at local French Immersion school

Desert Sun Academy, a French Immersion school in Cave Creek Unified School District, celebrated National Croissant Day during lunch by encouraging its Kinder through 6th grade students to try something new. Many students had never tried the buttery, flaky croissant, originally brought to Paris by an Austrian military officer in 1939. And the verdict? Overwhelmingly delicious!

Principal Bagwell encourages students to move out of their comfort zone, “All of these new experiences will help build global competence in students – a workplace skill that will come in handy.” This first public school of its kind teaches students French and Spanish with the French immersion choice being 50% of the school day starting in kindergarten. #Nationalcroissantday
