Rally Month

During the month of January, we are recruiting Host Families for the 2021-2022 school year!

Hosting French Interns plays an integral role in the success of our Edina French Immersion program. Without French Interns, we could not sustain our position as the top immersion program in the state.  

To continue this momentum, it is critical we secure 64 Host Families by January 31st. With 64 Host Families, we can support 28 French Interns, meeting our ideal allocation of Interns across all schools:

Normandale French Immersion

  • Kindergarten: 5 interns, 1 per class
  • 1st - 2nd grade: 4 interns per grade 
  • 3rd - 5th grade: 2 interns per grade
  • Specialists: 2 interns 

Valley View & Edina High School Extended French program 

  • Valley View: 4 interns
  • Edina High School: 3 interns                                                    

Parents, we need you! Please consider hosting and/or spreading the word about this opportunity to neighbors, family and friends. To find out how you can host, click here.
