Culture Notes Chpt. 5
In France if your late for school you must explain why you are late to the principal. The tardiness is recorded in a carnet de correspondance. It is used less with older students.
Many students eat in the school cafeteria. There is a first course, a main dish with vegitables, then cheese, fruit, or yogurt. Students might stand in line for their meal or they might be served at their table. They have a lot of free time during their lunch period because it is 2 hours.
Report cards come out three times a year. All of the things that show up on them in America, show up on the report cards of kids in France.
