Free French summer camp at Lee Road Library

Madame Melha Woods, a French teacher at Roxboro Middle School and Cleveland Heights High School, will host a weeklong French summer camp at the Lee Road Library, 2345 Lee Road.

Thanks to funding granted by La Maison Française de Cleveland, an organization that encourages the study of the language and culture of France and other francophone countries, the camp will be free and open to children of all communities.

The summer camp will be held Monday through Friday, June 16–20. Two sessions will be held each day. The first, for children 6 and younger, will take place 9:30–10 a.m.; no sign up is required for this session, and parents will need to stay with their children. A second session, for children 7 and older, is scheduled for 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.; sign up is required for this session, with priority given to new students, as space is limited.

Students will be introduced to French language and culture through activities such as music, stories, dancing, games, role playing and more. All sessions will be held in the library’s Meeting Room A.

For more information and to sign up (indicate the name and age of the student), contact Woods at
