March 30, 2020:  Gov. Larry Hogan issued a stay-at-home order for Marylanders which means no one should leave their home for any reason other than essential work, to get food or other fundamental reason. The order takes effect at 8 pm.
For the GISW this means:

1. All GISW buildings will be closed for the foreseeable future. 

2. In order to give our teachers and parents more time to prepare, we are postponing both parent nights that were scheduled for tonight to Thursday at the same time.

Distance Learning until Friday, April 24th, 2020.

We are here for you as we continue to prepare for the 2020/21 school year. The Admissions Office remains open. Please complete this form and we will contact you:

Informational Event at the SEL

Dear parents of our future School Entry Level students,

The Elementary School would like to invite you on March 2, 2020, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. to the rooms of our School Entry Level (SEL). During this time, we will familiarize you with our curriculum, the structure of our school day and our pedagogical concept. After the presentation, you have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in a brief tour of the school.

Towards the end of the school year, your children will be invited to the SEL for an orientation and a glimpse into what they can look forward to.

We can’t wait to welcome your students next school year!

Best regards,

Britta Scholl
Principal of the Elementary School

Dörte Hardage
Coordinator School Entry Level
