Several Chesterton High School German students participated in the ninth
annual Valparaiso University German Theaterfest competition in April.
CHS had two
entries from the CHS German 4 and 5 classes in the advanced division
competition under the direction of CHS German teachers Frau Michele Bartels
and Herr Cary Knauff.
Theaterfest competition involves local high school students performing skits
or plays in German. The CHS German 5 class took home first place honors and
the CHS German 4 class took home second place honors.
“We are very
proud of the performances of our students and found the event a very
valuable opportunity for CHS German students to speak authentic German and
experience German culture right in our backyard,” said Knauff.
