Gothenburg Will Host Winter Royalty This Week
Going on a safari is the name of the game for Gothenburg Public Schools as they hope to “Tame the Tigers’ to celebrate Winter Coronation with the basketball games set for Saturday evening.
Throughout the week, the Gothenburg students have shown great participation in the ‘Dress-Up’ days that coincide with Winter Coronation.
On Monday, it was in the jungle, the mighty jungle, the Swedes sleep tonight. They wore PJ’s on Monday.
Going on a safari were the Swedes to hunt the Tigers in their camo and safari gear on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, the students wore stripes as the Swedes are going to skin the Tigers.
Seeing multiple generations roam the halls will be easy on Thursday, as the students will make the Tigers see generations. Seniors dress as grandparents. Juniors dress as adults. Sophomores will dress as teens and the Freshmen will dress as babies.
On Friday, the students will dress to impress the tigers as frat boys and sorority girls.
Students will decorate for the parade starting at 12:40 p.m.
Final voting for the King and Queen will be on Tuesday.
The Winter Coronation games are set with the Girls Varsity game starting at 3:30 p.m. and the Boys Varsity to follow at or near 5 p.m.
Following the games, the GHS Winter Coronation royalty will be selected as the king and queen will be crowned. Competing for the honors and accolades to reign over the festivities are three boys and girls who were selected as Royalty nominees.
Queen finalists are:
MCKENNA PETERSON: daughter of Tim and Lynn Peterson; and Kelsey Peterson
GEORGINA DISHMAN: daughter of Michelle Ryan.
SARAH HABE: daughter of Gary Habe and Tish Doughty.
King finalists are:
WILL HEALEY: son of Chris and Stacy Healey.
TY CLEMENT: son of Dan Clement and Steph Binderup.

The Winter Coronation dance will follow the crowning in the Dudley Elementary Gym, with doors opening at 9:30 p.m. and closing promptly at 10:30 p.m. The dance will conclude at 12:30 a.m. There will be no jeans or hats allowed. The cost is $5 per person. Out of town dates must be signed up in the office by the end of the school day on Thursday.
