2020 EGLS Maifest

Saturday, Mai 16th, 2020

We hope to re-open school beginning of May (Saturday, 5/2/20) for our last few classes of the schoolyear and celebrate the end of the schoolyear with our traditional Maifest on May 16th. That said, we will of course adhere to state and local health guidance. We are currently looking into online alternatives. Maifest, traditionally the last day of the schoolyear, is an important event for our school community where we celebrate our students, teachers and families in completing the schoolyear.

EGLS Classes Online

Online Classes in Full Swing

Our teachers and students have switched to online German classes this past week leveraging Zoom as an online classroom instruction and communication tool while sharing homework and other resources with their students and parents. Please be sure to provide feedback to your teachers and work with them for your individual needs.
Online classes will continue throughout April, except for April 11th, our snow make up day: No school that Saturday.

2020 EGLS General Meeting

EGLS General Meeting

Starts 4/25/20

Please join us via Zoom on Saturday, 4/25/20, from 12:30 to 1:30 pm for our annual General Meeting where we report out on our school, introduce and recruit board members, and answer any questions you may have.

As always, we are looking for parents interested in joining the EGLS Board as directors or other roles. Please feel free to nominate yourself or others. This is a wonderful opportunity to become more involved in the decisions that affect EGLS. The Board meetings take place once a month and are a great way to engage with other members in strategically mapping out the future for EGLS.

We are required by law to report on our school annually and share the fiscal state of the non-profit organization. We hope you will join us! Vielen Dank!
