FHS starts German 'sister school' program


A letter writing project that started last week could lead to the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Students in Cheryl Wason's German classes wrote letters to students at Farmington High School's new sister school, Gerschwister Scholl (school) in Bensheim, Germany.

The sister school project was launched over the summer, Wason said. It started, in part, when a group of FHS students and a handful of chaperones took the program's bi-annual trip to Germany.
