German-American Partnership Program
Fifteen lucky students may visit our sister school, Gymnasium Trittau near Hamburg, Germany and many other amazing places, in June 2014. Students will be gone for three weeks and will live with German families who will later spend three weeks with them in America. Students must apply in writing, be interviewed and meet certain standards to be accepted. Application does not guarantee acceptance. Students do not need to speak German, although that would be nice. The families in Germany all speak excellent English. For more information, please see Ulrike Dannhauer in C107 or Frank Langheinrich in A 201.
There will be no winter dance this year; however, there will be a Sadie Hawkins Day dance on January 17 and a Sweethearts Ball in February.
The true story of Sadie Hawlins Day is this: In the 1950's a cartoonist named Al Capp produced a very popular comic strip called L'll Abner about a town of hillbillies named Dogpatch. This was in the era where only men were the pursuers. Because Dogpatch men were somewhat reluctant to marry, and because no one had chosen Sadie Hawkins to wed, Sadie pursued men on February 29 of some year, caught one and tied him up. She took him to the town clerk and had them wed. Ever since then February 29th has been Sadie Hawkins day and any woman who caught a man on that day was legally entitled to marriage to that man.
