Helau, Alaaf and Tatü! Our Berkeley/East Bay campus community and its guests celebrated the 10th German Family Karneval.
Events are a great part of school life, bringing together all members of the GISSV community, and giving us an opportunity to celebrate and engage in conversations.
Among our recurring annual public events are a German “Weihnachtsmarkt”/Holiday Market, where we transform Downtown Mountain View into a bustling “holiday village” for a day, or the Berkeley/East Bay Family Carnival, which features Brazilian drummers, student performances and many colorful costumes. Campus events for the GISSV community celebrate American as well as German holidays, sportsmanship (Walk-a-thon, soccer and volleyball matches with schools in the Bay Area), music (talent show, concerts, joint musical productions with Bay Area institutions such as Stanford University) and more.
Our preschool through first grade students enjoyed a fun puppet show.
5th and 6th graders presented their reading skills at today's German reading contest.
Parents of preschool-2nd grade students discussed the use of digital devices in young children's daily lives.
Our elementary choir and middle school musical group performed for a full house at last Friday's Musical Theater Night.
The annual GISSV San Francisco Lantern Festival is a fun family event including crafts, lantern making, German food & drinks and a lantern parade.
For the 4th time thousands of people celebrate an authentic German Holiday Market with us. GISSV can proudly say it has established the cherished "Weihnachtsmarkt" tradition in the Bay Area.
