Our school would like to welcome Sigmund Brouwer who is here for his Rock and Roll Literacy performance!

Did you know the history behind the Royals in Carnaval?
The idea of the Royals started in 1955.  Seven duchesses were chosen to escort Bonhomme around the city for the two week festival.  One lucky duchess was crowned Queen of the city. These duchesses were chosen based on a beauty contest.  Once Bonhomme realized that the duchesses were more than just a pretty face, the contest became more about the Duchess’ interests and abilities to represent the city.  In 1994, two men joined in the contest and the role of King was created.  Who will be HG’s King and Queen?  You will have to wait until Friday to find out!

Curling Club tomorrow at second break.  Teams playing are:  ITALY vs CANADA and AUSTRIA vs CHINA.  If you are on the Wait List come on out and fill in for missing players.
