Congratulations 2021 graduates!

We have put the pandemic year behind us and are looking forward to welcoming students back in September in person for the next school year. Registration for the 2021/22 school year will open soon.

Wir hoffen Ihr werdet einen tollen Sommer haben!

May Day, Library in the Park & Graduation!

In an effort to bring our library out to our students and community members, we are bringing books from Harry Potter, to toddler story books for borrowing. We would love to invite past, future and current students along with the German Speaking Community to stop by, buy a German pretzel and see the products of our May Day crafts. Willkomen!
