Heights HS did well at the Texas State German Competition

Please congratulate these students on their outstanding performances at the Texas State German Competition in San Marcos. 58 schools from across the state competed, and Heights came in 6th place among large schools and 9th place overall.


Dagny Carlsson was particularly impressive, taking 1st place in both poetry and prose reading, 2nd place in duet acting (with Ruby Guerra), 2nd place in extemporaneous speaking, 3rd in sight reading, 3rd in vocabulary, 10th in Grammar, 6th in listening comprehension and 4th in video show.

As a result of those achievements, and the cumulative points she has earned of the last two years of competition, Dagny was awarded the Mary El-Beheri State German Contest Memorial Scholarship. She was effectively crowned the best German student in the state, from among one thousand kids who came to compete.

Go Heights!

(PS- Big thanks to my colleagues Rebecca Ozuna and Brian McCafferty, for selflessly giving up half their weekend to help chaperone! They put the social in Social Studies.)
