Please become a GISW Partner-Family!

Dear GISW Families,

Many new families will join the GISW school community in the coming school year. The NEWBEES offer to find these new families “Partner-Families” who will ease their introduction into the new school life, or even the arrival in the Washington D.C. metro area. We are especially looking for families in the Preschool who would be willing to become Partner-Families!

What do Partner-Families do?

Upon request, the NEWBEES connect the new family with a compatible Partner-Family – the main focus is on complementing the ages of the children. The Partner Family will try to answer questions regarding the school life – and might be the first social contact at the GISW! It is up to the Partner-Family to decide how, and to what extent, they want to help.

How can you become a Partner-Family?

If you decide to help the NEWBEES by becoming a Partner-Family, please complete this questionnaire which helps us connect the best matching family with yours – we mainly focus on the age of the children!

We look forward to your support!

Warm regards,


Cordi Everett
