ANNUAL PUBLIC EVENTS AT GISW
GISW - FALL OPEN HOUSE
Visiting GISW is still the best way to find out if we are the right school for your child!
Please join us for our Fall Open House in November. The exact date for 2018 will be published here once it is determined.
Explore our campus during a student-lead tour, observe learning in action, and meet our GISW community! Tours begin every 10-15 minutes. After the tour, you can learn more about our rigorous, multilingual curriculum and talk to teachers as well as current parents during an information fair in our state-of-the-art science building.
Complimentary refreshments will be served. Children are welcome!
If you cannot attend the Open House, please contact our Admissions Office to schedule a private tour at email@example.com or 301.767.3807.
PRESCHOOL & SCHOOL ENTRY LEVEL OPEN HOUSE (ages 2 – 5)
Please join us for our Preschool & School Entry Level Open House in March. The exact date for 2019 will be published here once it is determined.
Doors open at 9:00 am in the Preschool and 10:00 am in the School Entry Level (SEL).
We recommend that you arrive early to have a chance to meet teachers, parents and staff during the first hour of the Open House from 9:00 t 10:00 am in the Preschool.
In our preschool, children aged 2 to 4 enjoy play-based learning with plenty of time outdoors. Teachers are native German speakers and speak German exclusively with the children. Your child doesn’t speak German? No worries. Since young minds learn quickly, preschoolers do not need to have prior knowledge of German before enrolling.
At 10:00 am, you can listen to a presentation of our Elementary School curriculum (SEL - 4th grade). Afterwards, you have the opportunity to explore our campus on a 20 minute tour. The SEL prepares students for 1st – 4th grades, helping them become comfortable learning in a classroom setting and building their knowledge of basic literacy and math. The program retains much of the play-based, inquiry-driven approach from the preschool years.
During the Open House, complimentary refreshments will be served. Children are welcome!
If you cannot attend the Open House, please contact our Admissions Office to schedule a private tour at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301.767.3807!
5K OKTOBERFEST RUN & FUN RUN
Athletes and German food lovers get excited for our annual 5K Oktoberfest Run & Fun Run! This fundraiser, which takes place every September, is an event for the whole family. The day starts off with a 5K run for youth and adults through the picturesque neighborhood of Potomac and is followed by a short Fun Run. During the subsequent Oktoberfest participants can re-energize with German specialties and a fresh cold beer. A comprehensive entertainment program is popular with all age groups. Registration opens during the summer of each year. Check back for regular updates about the event. We look forward to seeing you!
