Welcome Letter by the Head of School to start of the 2017/18 School Year

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2017/18 school year at the German International School Washington D.C.!

I wish you and your children a successful start into the new school year. If you are new at our school, today’s Welcome Night is the perfect opportunity to meet teachers, staff and other families. If you are a returning family, you have the chance to re-connect with old friends and swap stories about your summer adventures. Please do not hesitate to approach our teachers and staff with any questions. They are happy to help!  

I look forward to a new school year with you and your family.  

Best regards,

Petra Palenzatis

Head of School
