Alaaf!
Can't get enough of Fasching? Check out the SAGA Fasching in the afternoon:

SAGA Kinderfasching: On February 10, 2018, SAGA will host its annual Kinderfasching. It's time to celebrate Fasching!! (German Mardi Gras/Karneval). This is a fun community event - all are invited. We will sing, dance, eat "Krapfen" (donuts) and play games. The Bubbleman will also make an appearance. Come in costume!! Admission: $6 per person with reservation, $8 at the door, incl. entertainment, crafts, donut, and drinks. Children ages 0-23 month are free. Time: 2pm - 5pm. RSVP here.

EGLS Library

Please check out our library and check out some material for your family! You can self-check-out and check-in any of our materials while a student at EGLS (look for the white binder). The library is open during school hours on Saturday. If you have any German children's books, DVDs or CDs to donate, please do! We are always looking for new material, particularly children's board books and DVDs. We also need volunteers to wheel the book carts into the hallway before and after classes - a task that only takes a few minutes. Ideally, you would commit for a month. Contact Thea for questions or volunteering.

Please join us for our Holiday Celebration next Saturday, 12/9/17, from 10am to 12pm in the upstairs auditorium. The students will perform a variety of performances, followed by craft activities and a potluck.
Please bring a dish to share (breakfast items, baked goods, fruit or anything else you would like to share). We will provide beverages.
Note: Students should arrive for class at 9:30AM so teachers can do the final preparation for the performances.
Also: Calling all bakers to bring undecorated cookies so the children can decorate them during the event. Please bring 24 or more sugar cookies – made from scratch, ready-made dough or store bought. Please help! We need around 240 cookies to let every child decorate a couple of them. Bonus: If you work for a company that matches volunteer hours, you can get cookie baking volunteer time matched!
