Our San Francisco year-end celebration took place today.
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 5th 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.
The first GISSV Shark Tank event took place, featuring two amazing presentations from parents of our school, sharing their professional experiences.
In the Staff/Parent vs HS Soccer Team rematch last Friday, the Staff/Parent Team won the match in end-of-regulation shootouts.
Friday night's GISSV Spring Concert turned our Mountain View multipurpose room into a concert hall.
GISSV joined the National Bike-to-School Day and many students, parents, teachers and staff members enthusiastically took part.
