Last Wednesday, we hosted First Lady of France, Brigitte Macron, and French Minister of Education, Jean-Michel Blanquer, for a visit of P.S.84 in Manhattan. The school offers a dual-language program in French as well as one in Spanish. Principal Evelyn Lolis, her staff, teachers and students, as well as the parents, worked tirelessly to make this moment unfold with perfection. The result was an exceptional, intensely emotional experience which I will never forget. Mrs. Macron’s gentle heart, her kind words, and her interaction with the children (she is a former teacher) touched us profoundly.
Here are pictures of the school visit:
