St. Agnes School Hosts Visit From Foreign Exchange Student

Patrick Klaus, a German foreign exchange student with YFU International, visited Debra Klahs’s third-grade class at St. Agnes Catholic School in Bloomsdale. Klaus attends St. Pius X High School in Festus. He is the host son of Jim and Steffanie Campbell of De Soto. Klaus spoke about similarities and differences between Germany and the U.S. in food, sports, culture and education. He recited the Lord’s Prayer in German and taught the students a few words in his native tongue. He also shared his favorite Platzchen cookies he made from his grandmother Ellen’s recipe.
