Per GISSV tradition, we welcomed our new first grade students with a special ceremony.
Our San Francisco school community celebrated on Wednesday as well as our Mountain View community on Thursday the school entry and "Schultüten" (school cone) ceremony.
We're happy to welcome all new students and families to GISSV!
It was one event within a series of many at the onset of the school year, where our new Head of School (interim), Gerald Miebs, had a wonderful opportunity to extend a warm welcome to the community. Alongside Head of Elementary School, Gale Adams-Davis, and President of the Board of Directors Dr. Horst Groesser, he greeted both students and parents. A special note of gratitude goes to Incumbent Consul General Mr. Thomas Strieder, representing Oliver Schramm, for delivering heartfelt and sincere speeches to our community.
But before school could start for our first graders, Gale Adams-David together with teacher Barbara Troy (in San Francisco) and teachers Richard Denkhaus and Katrin Wangler (in Mountain View) handed over the very special school cones.
