EGLS May-Picnic; May 18, 2013 - 11am to 2pm
We would like to celebrate our last day of school with a May Picnic at Pine Lake Park in Sammamish (2401 228th Ave SE, Sammamish, WA).
Pine Lake Park has a great playground, grass fields, and water access, and we will have family games as well.
Hopefully all students who took the A1 or A2 will receive their certificates as well.
You will also get the last chance for early registration (no registration fee) with a full tuition payment for the next school year.
We are renting the shelter again at Pine Lake Park and will have the opportunity for BBQ; Bratwürstchen & Brötchen and drinks will be provided and you are welcome to bring your own culinary grill items. Please bring also something for potluck to share.
Get your picnic stuff out and join us at our May picnic. In case of really bad weather we will have an indoor picnic in school. Please check your email in the morning of the picnic day.

Wir freuen uns auf einen tollen Tag miteinander und viel Spaß zusammen

Principal Message

Saturday, March 23rd was a huge testing day at EGLS. 22 Students took one of the German proficiency test in the morning; Deutsches Sprachdiplom I, DSD – A2, and for the first time also the A1 (Vergleichsarbeit) for elementary students. The results are not back yet but after the pre correction it looks pretty promising. Keep up the awesome work!            

Liebe Grüße,
