The students from our Musical Theater groups blew us away Friday night!
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 Lantern Festival (Laternenfest) on our San Francisco campus with on-campus entertainment and a lantern parade through the neighborhood.
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.
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 6th time thousands of people celebrate an authentic German Holiday Market with us in 2018. GISSV can proudly say it has established the cherished "Weihnachtsmarkt" tradition in the Bay Area.
Both San Francisco and Mountain View 5th and 6th graders presented their reading skills at our Reading Contest on Tuesday.
The GISSV elves did it once again - they transformed Mountain View City Hall Plaza into a European village for our annual German Holiday Market.
We celebrated the upcoming holidays with a cheerful lantern parade and Holiday Concert last week at GISSV San Francisco.
After fun Halloween celebrations our Mountain View 2nd graders learned about the Mexican tradition of the Dia de los Muertos at the end of October.
