Invitation: Welcome Night 2017

Dear GISW Families,

We hope that you are enjoying your summer break. We cordially invite you to attend our Welcome Night on Wednesday, August 16, 2017, from 4:30 – 6:30 pm in the main building.

This is an event for the whole family. With our Welcome Night, we kick off the new school year. You will have the opportunity to meet your child’s homeroom teacher, learn more about a variety of offers for your child, buy P.E. uniforms, and to pick up your book orders. If you would like to purchase school books, school supplies, P.E. uniforms, or lunch tickets please remember to bring your check book or cash. Unfortunately, we cannot accept credit card payments.

We are from now on the German International School Washington D.C. and look forward to celebrating our new school name, logo, and mission statement with you at the Welcome Night!

During this afternoon, you can also explore opportunities to become involved with the Friends of the German International School, the Parent Association or as a volunteer in our Cafeteria.

Complimentary food and beverages will be offered in our school cafeteria. We look forward to seeing you at our Welcome Night!

If you have any questions regarding the event, please feel free to contact us at


Petra Palenzatis

Head of School
