  • Concentrated, sophomores Ojasvi Chourasia, Isha Gokhale, and Bella Yi make themselves crepes. The main focus of the meeting, the officer team created a build-your-own crepe station for members to enjoy. “[The best part of today’s meeting were] the crepes, they were delicious,” member Brady Johnson ‘26 said.

  • Commanding the room, the French Club officer team introduces the Gimkit. Mainly focusing on French vocabulary, the Gimkit allowed members to learn new words. “We played a fun Gimkit, and just seeing everyone participate [and] collaborate was a great opportunity,” President Shivani Kondubhatla ’25 said.

  • Laughing as they enjoy their crepes, sophomores Bella Yi, Isha Gokhale, and Ojasvi Chourasia talk with one another during the meeting. Mostly new members, they were encouraged to join because of the crepes. “I was inspired to come to French Club because of the crepes,” Gokhale said.

On Tuesday, March 5, French Club members gathered in Mme Harwick’s room to start their morning off with a crêpe breakfast. Officers created a build-your-own crêpe station for members to enjoy while playing a Gimkit about French food vocabulary. 

The officer team planned the meeting a month in advance and put lots of effort into their marketing to yield the largest turnout the club has had all year. 

“It was a really successful meeting turnout wise, we had a lot more members than we usually do,” French Club President Shivani Kondubhatla ‘25 said. “I hope they take away the community aspects of French Club, and all that we really offer so they come back, because it’s just a really fun club and it has great opportunities.”

The main event of the meeting was the crêpe station, where members could customize a crêpe to fit their tastes. Complete with crêpes and toppings such as Nutella, strawberries, and whipped cream, members were able to concoct a sweet treat for themselves to enjoy before the school day started. 

“[The best part of today’s meeting was] the crêpes, they were delicious,” member Brady Johnson ‘26 said.  

After everybody had made crêpes, the officer team hosted a Gimkit game so members could learn more about French cuisine and vocabulary while enjoying their breakfast. 

“[All the members] were just immersed in [French] culture,” Kondubhatla said. “We played a fun Gimkit, and just seeing everyone participate [and] collaborate was a great opportunity.”

One of the biggest successes of the meeting was the community bonding that was fostered. The club has often struggled with maintaining a consistent member base, and today’s meeting proved that the officer’s work came to fruition. 

“I think the best part was just all the members coming together,” Kondubhatla said. “It was so nice to see our work pay off. We had [close to] 20 people and seeing them make crêpes was so nice, they really seemed to be enjoying themselves.”
