Volunteer at one of the Advent Wreath Crafting Sessions

Dear Parents,

The crafting and sale of Advent Wreaths as well as the Christmas Market are the two main fundraisers organized by the Friends of the German School Washington D.C. For these projects, the Friends rely on the support of other parents.

Please volunteer and join the Friends at one of the advent wreath crafting sessions:

With the proceeds of these events we fund projects benefitting our students, which could not be financed by the current budget of the DSW (Smartboards, visits to theaters, Speaker series, etc.)

We thank you very much for your support!

Best regards,

Dagmar Tawil & Anja Caldwell for the Friends of the German School
