February 12, 2018: Carnival at the E.S.

The Elementary School at the German International School Washington D.C. celebrates Carnival (Fasching)

On Monday, February 12, 2018, we will celebrate Carnival (Fasching) with our Elementary School students. All children from the School Entry Level through 4th Grade will change into their costume after the 2nd period.

We look forward to many original and interesting costumes.  However, we would like to urge you to keep all costume accessories that are not essential to the costume at home. In particular we are referring to weapons, swords, and masks.

A musical parade through the main school will lead us to the gym. At 10:30 a.m. we will enjoy the shows „The Three Little Pigs“ and „The Three Billy Goats Gruff“ by KayDee Puppets.

 After lunch all students will change back into their regular clothes.

 All that is left to say is „Alaaf“ or „Helau“!
