The Norman’s will be hosting its annual French "Cabaret" soiree—a student event entirely in French, on May 31 to be held on the 3rd floor in the student cafeteria at BHHS.
The eventful night will comprise of skits, poems, songs (both singing and instrumental by French composers), and a dance (to French music), free to the public.
Participating students come from an array of French classes at the high school, from the first year to AP, including French students from the middle schools. French students are also behind the production of the event, conducting behind the scene roles such as decorator, public relations, and art director.
The gala will begin at 5:30 p.m. on the 3rd floor patio where food will be available for purchase. Doors to the student cafeteria will open shortly after at 6:45 p.m. Desserts will also be available during intermission.
The second half of the program will be held for the Awards ceremony. Students will be awarded for outstanding achievement in all of BHHS French classes and its National French Contest winners—the National French Contest ("Le Grand Concours") is the only French competition of its kind given nationally every year. BHHS students have historically done well, and once again, have a number of students who placed in the top 10 rankings both regionally and nationally.
