Around 100 students from Mountain View, San Francisco, and the East Bay campus gathered to celebrate the first middle school dance of the 2017/2018 school year.
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.
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.
