  Good-bye Chicago !

Un grand merci au lycée Martin Luther king Prep College High School pour leur accueil si chaleureux, nous remercions tout particulièrement Mme Monique Byrd  pour avoir organisé l'accueil dans des familles du lycée ML King et nous remercions également Monsieur le Proviseur du lycée ML King ,M. Nerain pour les avoir reçus dans son établissement.
Sans les familles d'accueil  du lycée Martin Luther King de Chicago ce séjour n'aurait pas pu avoir lieu, nous leur témoignons donc  notre plus grande reconnaissance pour leur gentillesse, leur disponibilité et leur enthousiasme.
The students of Colbert will miss Chicago and will remember their stay in American families for a long time.
Thank you !
