La Société honoraire de Français
Advisor: Madame Siffer (arlette_siffer@ManhassetSchools.org)The aim of this organization is to make French a part of daily life and to encourage a life-long passion for French. We encourage all French students at MMS and MHS to become involved with the FHS events throughout the year. The FHS strives to promote high standards of scholarship, to reward scholastic achievements, to create enthusiasm for and an understanding of francophone culture civilization, to promote and perpetuate international friendship, and to reward efforts toward furthering solidarity in the French- speaking world. The FHS was established through presidential order by the AATF in 1949 and remains affiliated with the parent organization.
