The International Club is hosting its largest event of the school year today in the gym at 1 p.m. The International Day festivities celebrate our diversity with songs, dances, music and other performances from our students, faculty, and some professionals. This year it will feature performances by the New Orleans Irish Set Dancers, Miss Glenna Broderick, the Circus Kids from the International School of Louisiana, and dancers from the Mari Milnar Dance Academy.
“Madame Gravel is a unique and masterful teacher.  In both her Art and French classes, she consistently finds ways to fully engage her students.  She inspires her students to create, and their work is evident throughout our building and on display in front our entire community during International Day, which occurs in our gym every year near the end of April.” –Principal, Paul Kelly ’83
Madame attended the Université Laval and received her BA in Art Education. She then moved to New Orleans and attended the University of New Orleans where she received her Masters degree in French Literature.
Outside of De La Salle, she enjoys dancing, walking, swimming, bike riding, reading, drawing, traveling, and spending time with her family.
