EGLS Fasching Celebration

Saturday, 2/8/20, from 10:30am-12pm at school

Our Fasching celebration will start at 10:30 am on Saturday, 2/8/20, not 10 am as reporting in the earlier newsletter.

Please note that parents or guardians of our youngest students (pre-school and lower elementary school grades) should be present during the festivities as games will take upstairs in Benson Hall while food and drink will be handed out downstairs. We need additional chaperones for safe and fun activities. We will play games, do some dancing and share Krapfen/Berliner/Donuts and drinks.

Your children and you should come in costume for best effect!

Classes will start as usual at 9:30 am and the festivities will start at 10:30 am and end at 12 pm.

Helau! Alaaf!
