The GISSV hosts and participates in several events during the year. Among our recurring annual events are a traditional Weihnachtsmarkt/Holiday Market, where our Mountain View campus transforms into a bustling “holiday village” for a day, or the Berkeley Family Carnival, which features Brazilian drummers, student performances and many colorful costumes.
Events are a great part of school life and the GISSV community. They bring together parents, students, teachers and staff, and give a perfect opportunity to celebrate, meet new people and engage in conversations.
Some of our events are open to the public and create visibility for the school within its neighborhoods and communities, while other events are internal and celebrate American as well as German holidays, sportsmanship (Walk-a-thon, soccer matches with schools in the Bay Area), music (talent show, Weihnachtskonzert/Holiday Concert, joint musical productions with Bay Area institutions such as Stanford University) and much more!
