On such a rainy wet day ... what a fantastic turnout and lanterns!
1st Day of School - September 2009
On the first day of school, all parents and students assemble in the hall and are greeted by the president of the board (Rob), the principal (Angrid) and the teachers. This year was especially exiting, since the EGLS received the PASCH certificate from the German government.

Nikolaus - December 2008
Der Nikolaus came by for quick visit this year, too. The students from the Hasen-, Marienkäfer-, and Waldstrolchklasse were surprised by his visit on Nikolaustag itself on Dec. 6th. Greeted by the kids with some poems and songs St. Nikolaus left as always some rewards in their shoes such as an orange, some nuts, and a chocolate.

St. Martinstag - November 2007
On St. Martinstag, kids had a half day of school, then came downstairs, lit their lanterns, and formed a procession. A bonfire was made for the event. The children walked in the procession, singing songs of appreciation of light in darkness, and were rewarded with cake and cookies.

Winterfest - January 1, 2007
This school year EGLS had a special event full of special offerings. The Weihnachtsfest had to be cancelled due to the big power outage in the Seattle area, and so many things were combined this year for one special event - the Winterfest.
Nikolaus - December 6, 2006
This time right on December 6th, children took off their shoes before entering the classroom and left them outside the door. A kindly St. Nicholas visited each classroom, where the children presented him with their song or poem. They were rewarded with a shoe full of traditional goodies, such as an orange, some nuts, and a chocolate.
