Congratulations to Sprachfest Participants

Please join us in congratulating the following students in their performance at this year’s regional Sprachfest.  Nearly 500 students from 20 different schools from across the Hill Country up to Round Rock, many of which are larger 5A and 6A schools, competed today at UTSA.  Boerne High School took 34 students, and 30 of them will compete at state in one or more events!  If their level of German is designated, they competed against students of the same level.  Otherwise, there were no level distinctions.  Additionally, with all of their successes, they secured a 4th place Sweepstakes win in the “Small School” division, which means the German program is fewer than 100 students.

Boerne High School students represented every category possible: Art Events, Declamation Events (Prose/Poetry), Drama Events, Music Events, Oral Tests (Interview, Extemp), Written Tests, Research Paper, Pass Auf (Jeopardy style trivia game), and Scavenger Hunt.  Students who placed in the top 5 in any given event compete at the end of the month against the other regions in Texas (Houston area and Dallas area schools) at the Texas State German Contest.  The students prepare for these events outside of class time, and we’d like to extend a thank you to Mrs. West, Mr. Torch, and Mrs. Jacobi for helping some of the students organize their rehearsals and/or find pieces to work with!
